And now it is also not clear about the spot of Roman Reigns in the WWE Survivor Series biggest show. As per WWE Rumor Roundup, WWE can bring Reigns to ring after the Survivor Series 2017 and will open up him in a big feud. Also now the Raw’s viewership has been increased by 300,000 from previews episode. It is the result of “Undersiege of Raw” by SmackDown last week. Thus the brand feud is enough to increase the ratings of WWE in the absent of Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns is the biggest attraction of the WWE as per YouTube data.

Everyone knows that the Monday Night Raw’s viewership always tends to decrease every fourth quarter of each year. That’s why if Roman Reigns return takes place post-Survivor Series then it can give the Monday Night Raw brand the boost that it is in need the most.

As we tell you in our last edition of WWE Rumor Roundup that John Cena will be there at WWE Survivor Series main event. He would not wrestle in a match but will be there as a special guest referee.

As per Latest WWE Rumor Roundup, currently, John Cena is the frontrunner to be the guest referee for the champion vs. champion Survivor Series match between the Brock Lesnar and Jinder Mahal. Other superstars who are looking for the special guest referee after John Cena are Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker and the Bill Goldberg.

As per WWE Rumor Roundup, WWE is thinking of John Cena to put as the special guest referee for WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar match at WWE Survivor Series 2017 pay-per-view.

But as there are other names also floated around for the spot of the referee. So John Cena is not locked up yet.  As per WWE Latest Rumors, other superstars might not want to do the match, and thus John Cena may end up getting the spot by default.

What’s It Mean For WWE?

Putting Cena as a referee in the champion vs. champion match looks like the waste of Cena. The reason behind this that John is a free agent and he is not fit the Battle of Brands.  Also, John Cena has a busy schedule until December. So he could not come to WWE until the end of the year. So if WWE put John Cena as a referee then this will lead to a future feud of John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship match when John Cena will return to WWE.

Recently it was noted that both the Monday Night Raw and the SmackDown LIve has lower viewership. So the return of the Champ at Survivor Series will help to boost the viewership also.

As per WWE Rumor Roundup, Cena’s role at Survivor Series will help to generate a good storyline with Jinder Mahal. And it will help to set John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship match at WWE WrestleMania 34 main event. There are also some WWE Rumors that John Cena will end the JInder Mahal’s WWE Title Reign at WrestleMania and will become a 17th time great WWE Champion as per our WWE Rumor Roundup. This scene will also push Jinder Mahal as the WWE Champ for several more months as it will help WWE to expand the brand’s popularity in India.

John Cena is the most popular and recognizable face in WWE and his feud with Mahal will help Mahal to get over with the crowd.


The Rock And “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Also Being Considered For Survivor Series Role

What Is The Deal?

If WWE doesn’t book John Cena as the special referee then we may get even a bigger superstar at Survivor Series as a  special guest referee for Jinder Mahal vs. Brock Lesnar match. As per WWE Rumor Roundup, the other big names are The Rock or The Stone Cold Steve Austin. But there is not an official announcement about any conversation between WWE and The Rock or Steve Austin. If any of they selected as a guest referee then it will lead to Steve Austin or The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar feud.


It will be a great surprise if the Rock or Steve Austin return to WWE even if for one match.

But Rock has a very busy schedule. As he is the second highest paid superstar/actor in the world. Thus it would be very difficult for him to appear in the WWE Survivor Series Main Event. And this increase the chances of Steve Austin to appear as a guest referee. Steve Austin has not come to ring from a very long time and it may be difficult for WWE to convince him for one more match of his life. If WWE is successful to do so then it will give birth to High Profile WrestleMania 34 bout with Brock Lesnar.

Actually, John Cena if booked as the referee then it will make more sense than The Rock or Steve Austin. Because WWE can use this scene as the future storyline of John Cena’s WWE Championship way. This will become the foundation of John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal match at WrestleMania 34 for the WWE Championship. And it is very necessary for WWE to give the WWE Title to someone else as Jinder Mahal was not able to attract fans.

So this is our WWE Rumor Roundup which is based on latest WWE speculations. If you like it then please share it 🙂
