As noted earlier here on the website, The Big Show replaced John Cena at last night’s WWE live event in Oakland, CA and the fans were offered refunds due to John Cena’s absence. According to sources, Cena was dealing with “transportation issues.”
The Big Show is backstage at RAW right now and is expected to return tonight. As of last word, there were plans to do something with Mark Henry, The Big Show and The Shield tonight. This would lead to a Henry/Show vs. Shield match at SummerSlam this Sunday night.
There was also talk of doing something between Natalya and The Bella Twins to set up a celebrity match at SummerSlam.
