On Saturday, WWE made a big announcement regarding the match pitting WWE Champion Jinder Mahal against WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at this month’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view.
According to a new article released by F4WOnline.com this weekend, John Cena has been chosen by WWE as the man to serve as the special guest referee for the Mahal-Lesnar “Champion versus Champion” showdown.
As previously reported, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline noted in the latest issue of his Wrestling Observer Newsletter that in addition to Cena, fellow WWE legends Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin were considered for the spot.
Cena has yet to appear on WWE television since losing to Roman Reigns at the WWE No Mercy pay-per-view back in September.
Prior to the Mahal-Lesnar showdown at WWE Survivor Series, “The Modern Day Maharaja” will be defending his WWE Championship against A.J. Styles in the main event of next Tuesday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live in Manchester, England.
