Backstage News On Why WWE Officials Kept John Cena Off Monday’s WWE Raw



john-cena-4

WWE officials specifically scripted John Cena not to appear on Monday’s RAW from Indianapolis because WWE Champion The Rock couldn’t be there. They did not want to bring attention to the fact that the WWE Champion wasn’t there on the Road to WrestleMania 29.

They went against the idea of having Cena come out and cut an in-ring promo because The Rock would have looked weak not being there to respond to it. They also did not want to put it out there that Rock was in South Korea at a GI Joe 2 movie premiere. The decision was made to just air the video package for their match.
