John Cena returns at Hell in a Cell against Alberto Del Rio in world heavyweight title match

He's back!

Surprise, surprise! John Cena, a man who left WWE the night after SummerSlam less than two full months ago to get surgery to repair a torn triceps, will be making his return to active competition at the upcoming Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Sun., Oct. 27, 2013, at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

For those who say ratings don't mean anything in 2013, this should quiet you down for good.

Indeed, Cena is returning remarkably fast and, of course, he's super excited about it:


Cena hasn't been seen in WWE since the Aug. 19 episode of Raw, when the former WWE Champion announced that, due to a partial triceps tear, he'd have to undergo surgery. Despite the projected four-to-six month recovery time commonly associated with such an injury, the Cenation leader will be ready for battle at WWE Hell in a Cell.

The stunning announcement came on the Oct. 7 episode of Raw, when SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero dropped the news on a furious Del Rio - to the delight of the WWE Universe, of course.

This is surprising if only because the natural assumption was Cena would return and immediately be inserted in the WWE championship title picture. Instead, he's chasing the secondary strap that has been co-main eventing on SmackDown for months now.

Either way, he's back ... unless it's a swerve and he's not actually back, which could also be the case.

Stay tuned!
