Changes to WWE Programming, John Cena Missing Elimination Chamber
WWE Making Changes to Their Programming
WWE has begun airing “Previously on Raw” segments prior to the show going live on Monday nights, featuring a wealth of highlights from on-going storylines and the previous weeks in-ring action. The segment also features a narration voice to the video packages.
It’s also interesting to note that since dropping Jerry Lawler and Lita, the Raw pre-show has now been cut from 30 minutes to just 10 minutes. WWE have also decided to stop recording it at WWE headquarters in Stamford and will now tape it backstage at Raw. The show will no longer feature four hosts and instead will be presented by Charly Caruso and Booker T.
It’s also expected that the SmackDown! Live pre-show will be sized down in a similar fashion.
John Cena to Miss Out on Next Years Elimination Chamber
With the Elimination Chamber scheduled to make a return on February 12th next year at the TSR Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, the PPV stands to be the final SmackDown! PPV in the lead up to Wrestlemania.
However, it’s interesting to note that as of writing, John Cena is not scheduled to appear at the PPV. Superstars that are being advertised for the show include AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose, The Miz, The Usos, Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella and Natalya.
Like is often the case with the WWE advertising events months in advance, this could all change, yet it is odd that they would exclude the company’s biggest name from their advertising campaign.This could signal that Cena will be taking a short hiatus from the company following the Royal Rumble in order to film his next movie – The Pact.
