Possible Opponent for John Cena at SummerSlam

With John Cena set to make his return from hiatus on the July 4th episode of SmackDown, there is speculation that he may work a program with Jinder Mahal at this year’s SummerSlam event once his feud with Randy Orton concludes.

We previously reported via Wrestling Observer that the company has long-term plans for Jinder to hold on to the championship, possibly into next year. If WWE does decide to have Mahal face Cena, there is a good chance that Mahal could go over in the match. The belief is that a win over Cena could really solidify Mahal as a top superstar in the company.
