As previously written, WWE creative has been told that John Cena was never booked for the Royal Rumble even though he was featured in advertisements.
Either plans have changed or WWE management didn’t tell creative out of fear of a leak getting out to the news sites because it looks like Cena might be making an appearance tonight.
Someone took a photo of the Titantron at Chase Field and noticed that John Cena’s logo was being shown during the testing.
As we’ve written about before, Cena was supposed to start an angle with Lars Sullivan but Sullivan flew home a few weeks ago after suffering an anxiety attack. During the NXT TakeOver: Phoenix conference call, Triple H said that Sullivan is fine and nothing has changed with him so perhaps, they will kick off the angle tonight and then Cena can take time off to film a movie before he returns in time for WrestleMania.
We’ll see if that is the case tonight. Check out the photo below.
