It’s been previously noted that John Cena will take time off from his WWE wrestling gig for the next several months. Just recently some new insight into why Cena is taking time off have surfaced, as well as information about how long he’s expected to be gone during the year 2015, and when he’ll be making his return. There’s even a rumored opponent for Cena to defend the United States Championship against at Hell in a Cell 2015.
The PWInsider Elite website recently noted that Cena will be taking time off for “personal reasons” and that he made the request back during the summer of this year. While co-workers have apparently tried to find out if everything’s going OK for the current United States Champion, he has assured them he’s fine, but has been “guarded” when it comes to his exact reasons for wanting the time off. There has been speculation he might be injured, or planning to marry his current girlfriend, Nikki Bella of the WWE Divas, but both of those do not appear to be the reason.
Cena will appear at the WWE’s 2015 Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Based on his recent incident in the ring where he took an accidental Superkick from Dolph Ziggler, it’s expected that Dolph will be facing Cena for the United States title at the pay-per-view. It’s quite possible that since Cena will be away for a total of two months, Ziggler could be your new U.S. Champion at the conclusion of the pay-per-view. Cena will step away after that event. He’s scheduled to appear again at WWE live events for after the Christmas holiday, which include a December 26th show at Madison Square Garden.
Cena has held the United States Championship since defeating Seth Rollins in the co-main event at WWE’s Night of Champions pay-per-view, and has defended it on WWE Raw several times since the victory. WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 will take place on Sunday, October 25th from Los Angeles at the Staples Center.
10/12/15 Update: Ringside News is reporting that Cena will be filming a new reality TV series for FOX. Shooting for the show is expected to begin on Oct. 26 and will run for 6-8 weeks.
