WWE SummerSlam Updates: Someone rumor John Cena to be in the major event of SummerSlam against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship this year, but it looks like the 16-time World Champion will not be attending The Biggest Event of the Summer.
Looks like there can be no marquee match. It has long been reported that WWE is planning a vigorous match between Roman Reigns and John Cena at this year’s SummerSlam. It described their match for the Universal Title as the best and major event of the Summer PPV. However, now the status of the match looks suspicious.
When was SummerSlam to be held?
SummerSlam is to be held next month on August 21. However, it looks like the schedule will keep Cena away from Elegant Stadium in Las Vegas for now. Variety reported that The Session Leader will join an all-star cast including Henry Cavill, Samuel L. Jackson, and pop singer Dua Lipa in director Matthew Vaughn’s new film, Argyll.
The film’s work is likely to start in Europe next month. With the continent’s strict quarantine measures in place, it could be difficult for Cena to arrive in Las Vegas on time. Even if he makes it to Allegiant Stadium on the 21st, there will be concerns about Cena injuring himself during the match and the filming going on.
John Cena may miss this time also due to schedule
John Cena could not wrestle at WWE SummerSlam 8 years ago because of an issue involving The Rock John Cena could shoot his scenes in Europe after facing Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, it couldn’t be that easy. Based on past events with The Rock, there may be other unforeseen events.
In 2013, The Great One broke his abdominal and joint muscles and suffered a hernia during his match against Cena at WrestleMania 29. As a result, the shooting of his film ‘Hercules’ was postponed for a few weeks and. The Rock hasn’t had a full-length WWE match since then because of insurance issues.
This may concern Cena and ‘Argyle’. The 16-time world champion at SummerSlam fears an injury and the film’s shooting halt and the associated insurance could be a major issue for the production company. Therefore, doubts about John Cena’s likely match against Roman Reigns are primarily because of the risk of injury rather than scheduling clashes, which can be corrected if necessary. However, his status hasn’t been confirmed so Cena hasn’t dropped out of SummerSlam yet.
