John Cena’s WWE Royal Rumble Status

John Cena is popping up everywhere, but he won’t be in Phoenix. It doesn’t appear as though he will work the Royal Rumble pay-per-view even though he is advertised. His image also appears in promotional material all over the city as well.

Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that he has been told by sources in WWE that Cena was never in the plan to work in Phoenix on Sunday.

“Cena, yeah let’s put it this way from what I’m told the people who work in the company, the people who work in creative were always under the impression that Cena is not working the Rumble and they would be very surprised if he is because there is no reason to lie about that one.”

It was noted that Cena not being there is a “weird one” because WWE advertised John Cena to appear at the Royal Rumble. Even after he was “injured,” WWE said Cena’s Royal Rumble status was only “questionable.”

Lars Sullivan was supposed to take him out of the storyline as well, but that didn’t work out. Either way, John Cena is busy filming a movie in Canada right now.
