During the John Cena/Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens/Elias match at WWE Super Show-Down, many fans commented on Lashley working most of the match and Cena not taking any bumps. Some fans wondered if it’s because of an injury.
Actually, he didn’t take bumps because he has more movie filming to do for Jackie Chan’s “Project X.” Cena is scheduled to fly back to China at the end of the month and he will stay there for two more months to wrap up filming. The movie studio was assured that Cena would not do anything that could delay filming, which means he can’t risk an injury.
It’s the same reason why The Rock doesn’t take bumps unless he’s in between movies. Cena is not currently scheduled for any WWE live events this year but the company is hoping to get him to appear at Smackdown 1000 in Washington, DC on October 16.
For those of you wondering about Cena’s hair, he has to keep a certain look for the movie.
