John Cena’s WWE return may be televised after all

When we first got word John Cena was bringing his new physique and sixth move of doom back to WWE, it looked like it was only for a handful of house shows.

The company has confirmed that it Cena will be back for those four post-Christmas, pre-New Years live events... and nine more shows. While WWE’s announcement only calls out one of the dates as a Raw, there’s actually another television Monday on the list and a SmackDown taping which the original report skipped.

Does spending two weeks on the road and possibly doing several TV appearances make it more likely the Bumblebee star will be at Royal Rumble on Jan. 27 at Chase Field in Phoenix?

Weds., Dec. 26 - New York City, Madison Square Garden (Raw house show)
