WWE has released an updated opening video for SmackDown Live which normally wouldn't spark much discussion but there is one notable omission from the lineup of Superstars that feature, his name...JOHN CENA!
The former WWE Champion has been absent from the company since WrestleMania 33 while he pursues his career outside of the company in television and Hollywood.
Cena is advertised to return to the company in July, but one has to wonder if this is a sign of a much more prolong departure for Cena or maybe he'll appear on both Raw and SmackDown upon his return, much like The Undertaker did in the week's leading up to his final match.
The times they are a-changin'
