— Dave Meltzer stated again on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE continues to advertise John Cena for the upcoming World Cup tournament at Crown Jewel, even though all indications suggest that Cena is not going to be on the show. An angle is expected to go down on Raw tonight on Raw to explain his removal from the tournament and as noted before, Bobby Lashley is said to be the rumored replacement for Cena.
— Daniel Bryan also continues to be advertised for Crown Jewel and Meltzer suggests that it doesn’t appear as if an angle for him will go down on Smackdown and WWE may still be having discussions with him, leaving the decision until shortly before the PPV. He adds that the situation with Bryan is strange because apart from online reports, everyone from WWE officials to talent or creative is refusing to either confirm or deny those reports; in fact they are refusing to make any comment at all to Meltzer, which seems to imply to him that there is definitely something going on.
