John Cena recently returned to WWE to celebrate his 20th anniversary with the company. Cena was expected to be put into a program with Theory, and the same has been teased for months. Many fans expect the match to be added to the card for SummerSlam.

After Theory won the Money in the Bank briefcase last Saturday in Las Vegas, many began to change their thinking on his immediate future. Theory dropped the United States title to Bobby Lashley, and the two are now set for a blow-off match at Nissan Stadium for SummerSlam. With Theory already booked, John Cena’s involvement becomes more questionable.

In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer pointed out that John Cena has not been advertised for any upcoming television shows. That means he is not likely to appear at SummerSlam. Fans may have to wait a while to see where things go between Cena and Theory.

“Lashley vs. Theory for the U.S. title is already official for the show, so the John Cena vs. Theory match is out and that would almost surely mean no Cena, since he’d not advertised on any television shows. Cena vs. Theory was teased for some point down the line last week.”

John Cena and Theory have been going back and forth on social media for quite some time. They even had a brief backstage encounter on Raw. While it might not happen at SummerSlam, it’s still expected that the two will eventually lock horns.

A portion of the WWE Universe will be disappointed if John Cena doesn’t appear at SummerSlam. At the moment, he does not appear to be booked. In wrestling, things can change in a heartbeat, but for now, fans shouldn’t hold their breath.
