1. Real Reason Behind WWE Being In A Rush To Put John Cena In Big Matches On Free TV Instead Of PPV, Cena Was Scheduled To Have One More “First Time Ever” Match On WWE TV In His Current Run
Ever since John Cena’s return to WWE programming this Summer, he has been featured in big matches on free TV instead of PPV. Also, Cena’s upcoming match with Roman Reigns, which is considered WrestleMania worthy, is being booked at just another Raw exclusive PPV.
The real reason behind WWE being in a rush to put Cena in big matches on free TV instead of PPV is that WWE officials aren’t sure about Cena’s future in the WWE (as there’s speculation that he’ll permanently leave WWE for Hollywood).
This is the reason why WWE officials are using Cena in as many big matches as they can and put the new stars over using him.
Below are the big matches that Cena did on free TV since his return:
– Vs. Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown Live (Lost)
– Vs. WWE Champion Jinder Mahal on SmackDown Live (Won via DQ)
– Vs. Braun Strowman on Raw (Won via DQ)
It should be noted that Cena was also scheduled to face Samoa Joe in a “first time ever” match on Raw a few weeks back, but it didn’t happen due to Joe’s injury.
However, it should be noted that Cena did face Samoa Joe at WWE Live Events in August (but not on WWE TV).
