John Cena Real Reason For Missing SummerSlam Leaks

John Cena was seemingly in plans to face Mr. Money In The Bank Theory in a blockbuster clash at SummerSlam. However, WWE has seemingly decided to move in a different direction. Theory recently won the Money In The Bank briefcase that contains the contract for a guaranteed Championship bout. Reports have been floating around that the Cena-Theory match has been delayed until WrestleMania 39. 



Cena appeared on the June 27 episode of Monday Night RAW to celebrate his 20-year anniversary as a WWE Superstar. While there was a small backstage confrontation between himself and Theory, it didn’t lead to a match like many fans were predicting. Theory is eyeing to reclaim the WWE United States title from Bobby Lashley and also has his eyes set on Roman Reigns for the Unidisputed WWE Universal Championship.

John Cena reportedly removed from SummerSlam

On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez confirmed that Cena won’t be competing at SummerSlam this year, which is due to the fact that he’s currently involved in filming the second season of the hit DC Comics TV show Peacemaker.

“I can confirm that being filmed right now is Peacemaker 2 and John Cena is involved,” Bryan Alvarez said. “He’s working on Peacemaker 2 as we speak. I presume that’s why there have been discussions of him doing SummerSlam but then he showed up on Raw to announce ‘someday I’ll be back. I don’t know when, don’t know where but I’ll be back someday.’ Apparently, he’s filming Peacemaker and that’s why he can’t do SummerSlam.”

Reports have suggested that Vince McMahon will persuade Cena to book him in a match at WrestleMania 39. But as the things goes at present, the 16-time World Champion is unlikely to compete at ‘The Biggest Party of The Summer.’
