WWE News: More on John Cena Returning as a Free Agent Next Month
Monday, June 19, 2017
As reported before, John Cena is being pushed by the WWE as a free agent for his return at the July 4th episode of Smackdown Live. The idea is that they will have him work on both Raw and Smackdown. This means that he will be appearing on more PPVs and he will be given access to a bigger pool of opponents.
It is still unknown what his schedule will be for house shows as Cena is the biggest draw for these live events. There is a chance though that he could work an abnormal schedule for these live events or he would just work on Raw, Smackdown and PPVs and get everything else off.
The last issue is that it is still unclear whether Cena himself will pick which brand he wants to go or whether the two brands will just go through a bidding war for his services. WWE has not yet disclosed any plans and their article on the topic was very vague which could be a sign that they are still mapping out the plan.
