As previously reported, John Cena was announced as the final participant on Team SmackDown in the traditional 5 vs. 5 Elimination match at Survivor Series.

Cena was originally planned to be the guest referee for Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal match, but those plans were change when the company made the call to put the WWE Championship Title on AJ Styles.

According to PWInsider, it was actually Vince McMahon who decided to make the changes to the upcoming Survivor Series lineup last week and to put the title on Styles. This call leaves Jinder Mahal as the odd man out at Survivor Series and it remains to see if they will even use him at the event.
