John Cena Off WWE TV?
Our top story today is Vince McMahon revealing the real reason behind the Brand Split. But first, it looks like John Cena will be off WWE television for a while in the near future.
Yes, that’s right – almost like a part timer.
FOX has renewed Cena’s reality TV show American Grit for a second series – which he served as Executive Producer of Thugamonics on, and its host. If you haven’t seen American Grit before – and going by the “soft” ratings for the first season, not a great deal of people did – it’s an army-themed competition where military veterans coach contestants through various, very strenuous training exercises.
Yes, that’s right – almost like fitness reality series The Hero.
Cena took two months off from WWE television to film the first series, leaving after dropping the US Title to Alberto Del Rio at Hell in a Cell in late October last year, and returning on the 28th December Raw, before being out again from the 7th January because of his shoulder surgery.
Although it’s not 100% confirmed yet, Cena will most likely return for American Grit’s second season – and if he’s off for another two months, what does that mean for Smackdown? Many believe the blue brand’s roster is lacking in depth already. With Cena potentially gone for two months, this might be why they’re trying to build up wrestlers like Dolph Ziggler.
