WHY JOHN CENA VS. JINDER MAHAL SIGNALS A NEW AGE ON WWE ‘SMACKDOWN LIVE’

WWE superstar John Cena returns to the ring in tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live, and the signs are that Cena is ushering in a new age on the WWE network. As any wrestling fan knows, Cena’s movie and television commitments have limited his appearances on SmackDown over the past couple of years. Cena returned to the ring at the 2017 Royal Rumble, where a fantastic match with AJ Styles saw him equal Ric Flair’s record of 16 championship titles.

WWE ‘RAW’ NEWS: ROMAN REIGNS VS. BRAUN STROWMAN IGNITES THE ‘FATAL FOUR-WAY’ AT ‘SUMMERSLAM’ 2018

WWE wrestling fans have known for some weeks that the 2018 SummerSlam will feature Brock Lesnar’s first defense of his Universal Championship belt. With Lesnar virtually invisible, since winning the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 33, the SummerSlam build up has been all about who he will face at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on August 20. Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns were always tipped to challenge “The Beast Incarnate” at SummerSlam, but Samoa Joe has also earned a title shot, since making his main roster debut earlier in the year.

SAMOA JOE TURNS BROCK LESNAR A STRANGE SHADE OF PURPLE ON WWE ‘MONDAY NIGHT RAW’

At last, Brock Lesnar is back on the WWE network. Lesnar has been out of competition, since he beat Goldberg, to win the WWE Universal Championship, at WrestleMania 33. Once WrestleMania was over, Lesnar slipped into another hiatus, and as previously reported in the Inquisitr, he has not competed since. Lesnar’s absence from Monday Night Raw, has doubtless hurt the WWE’s viewing figures, so his return, on last night’s show, is certainly welcome.

DANIEL BRYAN RETURNS TO WWE ‘SMACKDOWN’ – SHAKES THINGS UP, CALLS JAMES ELLSWORTH ‘CHEAP’

WWE SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan, has been off-air for the past couple of months. As reported by The Heavy, Bryan took a sabbatical, because he and his wife, Brie Bella, have just welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Birdie Joe Danielson. During Bryan’s absence from SmackDown Live, the shows viewing figures have been tumbling, and many think that the blue team got the rough end of the WWE “superstar shakeup.” The ongoing absence of WWE superstar John Cena, who hasn’t performed since WrestleMania 33, may be a factor, but the fans are just not buying into some of SmackDown’s recent storyline developments.

JINDER MAHAL ACCUSES WWE UNIVERSE OF RACISM AFTER BEATING RANDY ORTON AT ‘MONEY IN THE BANK’

Last night saw Indo-Canadian WWE star Jinder Mahal retain his WWE Championship crown by beating Randy Orton on his home turf. During the SmackDown exclusive Money In The Bank PPV, Mahal pinned Orton to retain the championship, albeit with a little help from his friends, the Singh Brothers. Mahal’s latest victory continues his push on the WWE network. Mahal is triumphing over all-comers at the moment, as the WWE network continues to raise his profile, particularly on the Indian sub-continent.

As previously reported in the Inquisitr, The Maharajah struggled to make any impact during his previous stint with the WWE. Mahal returned to the independent wrestling circuit after being cut from the WWE roster in 2014 but returned to the WWE in 2016. When Mahal returned, defeats to Neville and Sami Zayn hardly suggested that he was on his way to champion status, but all that changed once WrestleMania 33 was over.
