Why John Cena is Missing WWE Raw Monday Night, Does This Change Plans For WWE Battleground Sunday Night?

wwe battlegroundJohn Cena’s name has been officially removed from the advertisements for WWE Raw the night after WWE Battleground. Up until a few days ago, John Cena was still advertised, but he will not be there as he has to be on the set of the Trainwreck movie that he is appearing in. 

There are many people who think that this could be a sign of Cena dropping the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on Sunday at WWE Battleground. These same people backstage believe Roman Reigns would be the next man up as WWE needs to “pull the trigger” on him and let him carry the championship.

It will be very interesting to see what WWE decides to do tomorrow night from Tampa, the site of WWE Battleground. We also know that Brock Lesnar has been scheduled to return to WWE Raw the following night, so it will be interesting to see how they use him upon his return to hype up WWE SummerSlam in August.

Isenberg:  I find it hard to believe that WWE will give Roman Reigns the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Battleground.

Personally, I would not mind it, but WWE has already sent out advertisements for Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam and Reigns has been rumored to fight either Randy Orton or Triple H at the big event in Los Angeles.

I would still bank on Cena retaining and WWE finding a simple way to bring Lesnar back to WWE with Paul Heyman on Monday to begin the road to SummerSlam.
