For the first time in 15 years, a WWE SummerSlam card will not feature John Cena. I guess this is just another reminder that Cena is being phased out and moving onto other projects, but the man himself did have some thoughts:
First time in 15 years I have not been able to be a part of @WWE #SummerSlam. I am beyond grateful to @EyeOfJackieChan but truly miss the @WWEUniverse. Wishing all Superstars luck and safety! My time isn’t quite up, but #YourTimeIsNow! #CarpeDiem

Cena fans will still be getting their fix in the upcoming months though. His next WWE appearance is in China on September 1, and he is also booked for the October 6 Super Show-Down in Australia. The future Hall of Famer is also likely to make an appearance at SmackDown 1000 on October 16.
