Cena’s Opponent At SummerSlam
During Tuesday night’s SmackDown Live, the 11th SummerSlam match was announced. Last week, John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura were attacked by the 2017 Men’s Money in the Bank winner Baron Corbin. However, Cena would quickly have the upper hand and send Corbin through the announce table. On this week’s broadcast, Cena spoke about last week’s events and was interrupted by Corbin. SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan announced Corbin will face Cena at SummerSlam.
Cena vs. Corbin is the latest of the still-growing SummerSlam card, which still does not include the WWE Intercontinental Championship or the RAW Tag Team Championship matches
