As many of you already know, John Cena is expected to take some time away from WWE in the near future. That means that there will be an empty spot for someone on the roster to try to claim during his absence. It is being said that many backstage are pushing for Dean Ambrose to be given that chance. The one thing that might get in the way of that is that it might be too soon to do a rematch with Seth Rollins.
