WWE announces surprising return of John Cena


John Cena is returning to the WWE ring for the first time in nearly two months at Survivor Series, where he'll join Team Smackdown in the traditional 5-vs-5 elimination match.

On November 19, Kurt Angle, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe and Jason Jordan take center stage for Monday Night Raw against the team of Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode and Cena as the faces of Smackdown Live!

Cena was previously rumored to be the special guest referee for what was once the Brock Lesnar-Jinder Mahal Champion vs. Champion match. That all has gone out the window after AJ Styles won the belt in Manchester, England on Tuesday.

Survivor Series will have a special start time at 7 p.m. ET live on the WWE Network.
