Update on John Cena’s WWE Partner for Fastlane – During last Friday’s WWE SmackDown, John Cena was subjected to a brutal attack by Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa after a contract signing that set up a tag team match at the October 7th Fastlane premium live event. LA Knight was originally supposed to save Cena from the attack, but he was pulled from the show after testing positive for COVID-19.
Fightful & Wrestling Observer Radio report that LA Knight is set to be Cena’s tag team partner at Fastlane, which was the intended outcome of the angle before Knight’s absence. It remains to be seen if Knight will appear on WWE programming this week or if WWE will hold off until the following week’s go-home show.
Additionally, Wrestling Observer Radio mentioned that WWE offered fans on SmackDown a refund due to Knight being pulled from the event, which suggests that WWE sees him as a significant talent.
