As anticipation mounts for John Cena’s return to the SmackDown scene, a twist in the tale emerges. Cena is slated to team up with Seth Rollins for a face-off against Imperium at WWE Superstar Spectacle, an event dedicated to the Indian audience, scheduled for September 8. The surprise lies in the pairing, as none of the participants hail from India.
This quirk opens the door to a riveting possibility. Could Cena, in a masterstroke of strategy, summon The Great Khali to form an unconventional alliance? Picture an electrifying six-man tag match pitting Cena, Rollins, and Khali against Gunther and Imperium, adding a dash of unpredictability to the event.

In the backdrop of this fervor, Jimmy Uso’s return adds fuel to the fire. Following Jey Uso’s sudden departure, the anticipated match between the Usos faces uncertainty. Rumors swirl that the bout might be postponed until WrestleMania 40, potentially leaving Jimmy with a choice to make.
Intriguingly, Jimmy’s trajectory could lead him down unexpected paths. While he might explore midcard rivalries and a potential feud with Solo Sikoa, his connection with Jey Uso continues to beckon. Amidst speculations, could Jimmy’s journey even extend beyond WWE as he seeks solace in visiting Impact to reconnect with his wife, Trinity (f.k.a. Naomi)?
