John Cena Says He Won’t Be at SmackDown

John Cena tweeted that he’ll be watching tonight’s Friday Night SmackDown debut “from afar” because he’s currently shooting Fast & Furious 9 in London.

Cena has been shooting the movie and living in London since June.

Cena was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, which is in Burbank, CA, so it’s not out of the question that he could fly in for a surprise appearance at SmackDown in LA. But with The Rock, Stone Cold, and several others already on the show, WWE probably isn’t desperate to have Cena there anyway.
