John Cena’s Status For Royal Rumble
16-time World Champion John Cena is set to make his WWE return on December 26 at the Madison Square Garden. The Champ will be working a series of live events till mid-January and is also advertised for next week’s episode of Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live.
However, Cena isn’t going to be around much longer as he is to start filming his next movie on January 20, 2019. WWE’s upcoming and first pay-per-view of the new year, Royal Rumble takes place on January 27, just a week after the Leader of Cenation gets busy with his Hollywood commitments.
At this point, it is very unlikely that Cena will be part of Royal Rumble; however, he did confirm himself for WrestleMania 35 months ago.

Matt Riddle On Wrestling Bigger Guys
NXT Star Matt Riddle recently appeared on the E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness podcast and explained his passion for wrestling guys bigger than his size.
“I like wrestling the bigger guys because I can lay into them harder. And they can dish it back out and I don’t mind. Not a lot of the big guys are in that position right now as top 5 title contenders. Lars (Sullivan) was in NXT but he’s going up. Same thing with Heavy Machinery. I wouldn’t mind mixing it up with the Big Doz (Otis Dozovic).”
