John Cena and Nikki Bella left out in the new SmackDown opening video

John Cena and Nikki Bella

Same as Raw last night, SmackDown Live also had an updated video package to open the show tonight. The updated video included snippets of superstars who either debuted on SmackDown recently or were moved from Raw during the Superstar Shakeup.

Although what’s interesting to note here is that both John Cena and Nikki Bella were left out of the video as seen below:

Both Cena and Nikki have not appeared on SmackDown Live since they defeated Miz and Maryse at Wrestlemania 33 and more importantly since the Superstar Shake Up. John is said to busy with his other projects outside WWE and her fiancee is reportedly rehabbing from some nagging injuries.

The fact that Chris Jericho who is also on a hiatus from WWE has been given a spot in the video but Cena has not, has started many rumours including the one which says that he might be moving to Raw.

Though Cena is currently scheduled to be part of the July 4rth episode of SmackDown Live and things should become clearer after that.

    yeah, i bet the storyline explanation of John Cena going to Raw along with Nikki Bella would be that Raw acquired them in the “Superstar Shake Up” mini-draft, but since they were already on break, they were acquired from Smackdown to Raw during the shakeup.

    also in storyline, you can say Kevin Owens was picked up by SmackDown from said shakeup as well, but Chris Jericho and him was feuding over the US Title belt, so Jericho winning it was the only way he being moved to SmackDown to finish the feud with Owens past Payback.

    so anyway, they are still doing shakeups , just they were waiting on Cena’s return to finish it.
