SPOILER: John Cena’s opponent at WWE SummerSlam (updated)

As noted on Monday night, this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view will be a loaded show and will run 4+ hours. The Kickoff show will run 2 hours and will have a special start time of 5 pm eastern on the WWE Network. Jerry “The King” Lawler, Renee Young, David Otunga will join Renee Young and Peter Rosenthal on the panel.

I think it’s obvious what the plans are for John Cena but for those of you that have asked, Cena is expected to face Baron Corbin on the show. That match should be announced tonight on Smackdown Live. By the way, if you missed it, click here to read what is scheduled for tonight’s show.
