In an electrifying episode of WWE SmackDown last week, fans witnessed a dramatic turn of events as John Cena, the leader of the Cenation, found himself embroiled in a chaotic brawl with The Bloodline. Cena was on the verge of being overwhelmed by Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa when Jey Uso made a surprise appearance, turning the tide in Cena’s favor.

However, this act of defiance came at a cost for Jey Uso, as he took out his own twin brother, resulting in repercussions that had been lingering from a previous incident on RAW, where he and Cody Rhodes lost the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match.

The aftermath of these intense moments led SmackDown’s General Manager, Nick Aldis, to impose a hefty fine of $10,000 on Jey Uso for his actions. With tensions running high, speculation is rampant about whether Jey Uso will make an appearance on this week’s episode of the blue brand, leaving Cena to potentially face The Bloodline alone.

Potential AJ Styles Comeback

However, there are whispers of a possible game-changer that could level the playing field – the return of a 25-year veteran, AJ Styles. Styles, who was originally slated to join forces with Cena in a tag team match against Solo and Jimmy, found himself sidelined due to a brutal attack by The Bloodline in the buildup to WWE Fastlane 2023.

LA Knight stepped in to fill the void at the Premium Live Event on October 7. As fans eagerly anticipate the upcoming episode of SmackDown, questions swirl around the potential involvement of Styles. While he is being promoted for appearances post-Crown Jewel 2023, taking place on November 10, his presence on the blue brand in the interim remains a tantalizing mystery.

Adding to the intrigue, reports indicate that the October 27 episode of WWE SmackDown will mark John Cena’s last scheduled appearance for this current run, creating a must-see TV moment for fans worldwide. Cena, a consummate performer, is also expected to grace the ring at the Premium Live Event in Saudi Arabia, marking his first return since his victory over Triple H at the Greatest Royal Rumble PLE in 2018 – a triumphant moment he nostalgically referenced during his impassioned promo last Friday on SmackDown, moments before clashing with The Bloodline.

This unfolding drama sets the stage for an unpredictable and highly anticipated episode of WWE SmackDown, as fans wait with bated breath to see if AJ Styles will make his triumphant return, and how John Cena will fare in what could be his final showdown on the blue brand.
