WWE News: John Cena Is No More Considered As The Face Of Smackdown Live

It might be hard for the WWE to remove the legit “Face that runs the place” for over two decades from his place. He’s been the face of both Raw and Smackdown Live, previously.

But, it is the time to get him replaced considering that his time is up for sure considering that he no more a full-time performer.

For the past few years, John Cena has picked up the role of the part-time where he comes back to wrestle for the big PPVs and goes on hiatus once it’s done. His commitments in the Hollywood do not let him compete for a full season in the WWE, anymore.

So, quite obviously reports surfaced on the sources stating that WWE is no more considering John Cena as the face of Smackdown Live. Ever since Wrestlemania 33 has been gone, he is on a hiatus from the company alongside his girlfriend, Nikki Bella.

This might be the reason that the company has introduced a new video package for Smackdown Live where the Cenation leader is absent. It is considered to be a drastic change in WWE product where they are not advertising the franchise player of the company, anymore.

Nikki Bella is also not present in the video package which is a legit intention that both of them are now transitioned into the role of part-timers and no more carry the brand on their shoulders. Contrary to Cena, Nikki is on hiatus due to the concussions in her neck.

In Cena’s absence, Randy Orton has been given a focus as the mainstay guy on the roster, whereas, AJ Styles is being considered as the face of the brand on a long-term basis. He has already stolen the catchphrase, “the face that runs the place” from John Cena for that sole purpose.

Styles and Orton certainly have the potential to carry the brand forward, as they are the veterans. However, the condition is worse for the women. The absence of Nikki and Alexa Bliss has made things nasty. The creative will have to come up with more intense storylines in order to keep things right.

Cena is advertised to return on July 4th episode of Smackdown Live in Phoenix, Arizona, whereas, there’s no exact date for Nikki’s comeback.
