John Cena is poised for an electrifying tag team showdown at WWE Fastlane, but the big question looms: Who will stand by his side in the ring?
Cena’s return to WWE has thrust him right into the heart of the Bloodline’s tumultuous business. On the September 15th edition of SmackDown, he found himself on the receiving end of an onslaught by Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso. It was none other than AJ Styles, who once took immense pleasure in pummeling Cena, coming to the rescue.
In Glendale, Arizona, on SmackDown, John Cena arrived with a fiery determination to take on The Bloodline. He introduced AJ Styles as his partner in the quest to dethrone the formidable faction. The challenge was thrown down, as Cena and Styles called out Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa for a tag team showdown. However, The Bloodline’s response was a calculated exit.
The night proved to be a rollercoaster for Adam Pearce, the man tasked with trying to arrange the epic confrontation. The Bloodline, led by the ever-present Paul Heyman, made it clear that the match wouldn’t take place on that particular show. Instead, the prospect of this epic showdown was floated for Fastlane, leaving fans buzzing with anticipation. Yet, Sikoa issued a warning, claiming The Bloodline might have no one left to face by that time.

Did John Cena officially commit to the Fastlane match?
A contract signing was arranged later in the night, and John Cena wasted no time in adding his signature to the document. However, backstage footage revealed a shocking turn of events as Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa ambushed AJ Styles, leaving him incapacitated and departing in an ambulance.
The Bloodline seized the moment to gloat about their assault, which prompted Cena to storm the ring in an attempt to neutralize Uso and Sikoa. Despite his valiant efforts, the numerical superiority of The Bloodline proved insurmountable, and they asserted their dominance to close out the show.
Notably, this development deviated from the original plan, which involved LA Knight assisting Cena. However, Knight was abruptly removed from the show due to a medical issue. If Knight can make a swift return, it appears that he might just become John Cena’s partner at Fastlane, promising an explosive showdown.
