WWE News: Cenation does not minding applaud the superstars who do well in the ring. John Cena during an interview, applauded both Bray Wyatt and Seth for their amazing performances in the absence of Live audience while talking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated.
“Bray is obviously doing a great job,” Cena said. “And Seth Rollins has done an unbelievable job of adapting to a crowdless environment.”
John Cena last performed against Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 36 in a “Firefly Fun House” since then, there is no update on John Cena’s possible return in WWE. However, Cena also battled against Seth Rollins in a nail-biting contest at SummerSlam 2015 which he lost at last moment.
Currently, Bray Wyatt is in a feud against Braun Strowman and whereas, Seth Rollins is handling Rey Mysterio’s son Dominik Mysterio. Bray Wyatt will face off against Braun Strowman at SummerSlam for the Universal Championship. Dominik Mysterio also make his in-ring debut against Seth Rollins at Summerslam 2020.
John Cena further explained that it’s always difficult to perform without the support of fans since they cheer for you, boo for you, and there presence makes to you bring the best out of you. All Superstars have tackled the challenge of performing without live audiences. Cena also acknowledged that how WWE superstars are giving their 100% in such situations “I’ve always said that the most important superstar is the audience. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a better indication of that than right now. The program is different.”
However, Cena remained optimistic about WWE’s programming until live fans can safely return to arenas while also acknowledging the obstacles that lie ahead:
“I firmly believe that not only will it survive, it will thrive, but it has to, as an entirety, embrace this process. I believe they’re beginning to do that. The longer they go without an audience, they need to transform as an entirety what sports entertainment is. I think they’re in this weird sort of middle ground, where they don’t know when crowds will be let back in. If you truly commit to a paradigm shift, that may scare away the normalcy the viewers are used to seeing. So you kind of have to operate like there is an audience, but there isn’t an audience.
“It’s a very weird time. I don’t think they’ve committed to transition yet, and that’s absolutely justifiable because, eventually, people will be let back into turnstiles. It’s very complicated. There isn’t a clear-cut answer to be like, ‘Just do this and it will be better.'”
Furthermore, it seems like that SummerSlam may also take place in the absence of Live audience because of COVID-19 pandemic worsening situation in Florida.
However, SummerSlam is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 23 August 2020 and the location is yet to be decided.
