WWE welcomed John Cena back for a Summer of touring and that resulted in a match against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam. Now Cena is gone and the ticket sales really show that as well.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer spoke about John Cena a bit and how much of a draw he is. Now that the Summer of Cena is over, WWE is having some bad issues with filling houses.
If ever there was any argument about John Cena, I’m not saying throughout his entire career, but John Cena at this stage going to house shows and being a draw, boy did this year end it, because they were running around everywhere when he was working and they were selling tickets and they were doing very well and now that he’s not there it is has gone from great to so-so and maybe in some cases less than so-so, I mean bad. There are bad ones now.”
Cena returned at the MSG SmackDown, but he only appeared for the live crowd in a dark match. That might be the last time anyone sees him in WWE for a while.
John Cena is a huge draw, but his run with the company is over once again for now. We’ll have to see when Cena will be able to return to WWE, but it really can’t come any sooner.
