John Cena added to SmackDown's WWE Survivor Series team
Nov 09 2017
Previously, Styles held the WWE Championship for 140 days until losing it to John Cena in January at the Royal Rumble. Just weeks before that match he is no longer champion which makes zero sense UNLESS he wins it back next week prior.
That would be an unforgettable dream match as Styles is one of wrestling's biggest names and Lesnar is one of the most risky fighters in the world.
It seems as if WWE is finally listening to the fans and is giving them what they want. On his Instagram, Jinder Mahal addressed not only AJ Styles, but shut down any rumors of him being injured or violating the WWE Wellness Policy. It's the classic David vs. Goliath scenario.
Mahal's reign is over, and as a result, the scheduled champion vs. champion match at Survivor Series was altered to Lesnar vs. Styles - instantly making the show an absolute must-watch.
Lesnar will now face newly crowned WWE Champion AJ Styles at the event.
John Cena has instead got permission to wrestle at Survivor Series 2017.
It was announced today that Cena had been added as the final member of SmackDown's men's division team for their elimination tag match against Raw. Smackdown's team consists of Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode and now John Cena.
Raw's team for the match is now scheduled to be Kurt Angle, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and Jason Jordan.
The following contains major spoilers for the November 7 episode of Smackdown Live. As of right now, Jinder Mahal, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and Rusev are all left out of the PPV.
