As many of you already know, Smackdown is being moved to the USA Network in January. Since WWE wants to stack these shows to put up good numbers, they have decided to contact John Cena and add him to the first couple of television taping. Cena is now scheduled to show up in Laredo for those episodes. The former world heavyweight champion has been off of the road so that he can film a new reality television show.

For the longest time now, fans have been trained to view Smackdown as a secondary show. That is going to be temporarily changing soon. The belief is that Vince McMahon is going to load up the show with big matches for the first few months after they move to the USA Network. There is a very good chance that John Cena is going to have to work on that show more frequently than normal. Undertaker and Brock Lesnar might even make appearances.

As a sign of how seriously concerned WWE is about the health of Daniel Bryan, the company has now confirmed that he was sent home early from the tour of Europe. He worked a tag team match with John Cena during the Smackdown taping. The front office then put him on a plane, so that he can go home and recover. Officials are saying that it is a precautionary move. No word yet on when Bryan will be heading back on the road to work.

After making an appearance at Wrestlemania in the corner of Rusev as he dropped the United States Heavyweight Championship to John Cena, Lana returned to the film lot to finish off the Interrogation movie, which also stars WWE legend Edge.

As an effort to generate some last minute excitement for Wrestlemania, WWE has decided to put their top stars into a big tag team match. In the main event of Smackdown this week, John Cena will team up with Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and Mark Henry to take on Bray Wyatt, Big Show, Seth Rollins and Kane. The match could just end up in a big brawl at the end, so that they can promote the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.

On the latest episode of Smackdown, Lana did not appear by the side of Rusev, who is upset with his companion because she gave into the threat by John Cena and agreed to a United States Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. She was also not with him at live events over the weekend. The belief is that the gorgeous Russian valet is going to be kept off of television until the big pay per view. She is currently filming a movie with Edge.

Since he is a locker room leader, John Cena decided to hold a meeting with all of the wrestlers earlier today. He wanted to address the civil war in WWE, where some of the performers have now decided to side with Triple H and are doing silent protests against Vince McMahon at TLC by not working as hard as they could. Many feel that Monday Night Raw and Smackdown would be much better if HHH was running those shows like he is allowed to run NXT.
