You won’t be seeing him at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
Following weeks of rumors and reports, John Cena was officially written off the WWE World Cup at Crown Jewel this Friday.
Cena got the boot in a short but sweet backstage segment on this week’s episode of Raw. After Bobby Lashley lost to Finn Balor by disqualification, Baron Corbin wanted to reward him for beating down Finn post-match.
What was Lashley’s prize?
WOW. @fightbobby just impressed @BaronCorbinWWE so much, he's qualified for the #WWEWorldCup tournament to determine the best in the world at #WWECrownJewel! #RAW pic.twitter.com/ulUFC9OBYD— WWE (@WWE) October 30, 2018
