Backstage News on John Cena Being a Free Agent
Posted On August 2, 2020
As previously reported, when John Cena was announced to be returning with a video vignette there was a graphic that referred to him as a “free agent”. As reported by Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, John Cena’s return as a “free agent” is indeed leading up to Cena appearing on both Raw and Smackdown.
Cena as we all know is a Smackdown Live Superstar and is exclusive to Smackdown Live. But due to the fact that he really is the only superstar than has a major draw in the company, officials feel they need him on both shows for interest/attendance purposes. Because of this, WWE is giving up the brand exclusiveness only with John Cena.
