World Wrestling Entertainment has announced that John Cena will be the fifth - and final - member of Smackdown's team for the Survivor Series.
Cena will join Bobby Roode, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura and team captain, Shane McMahon for the elimination match against Raw's Kurt Angle, Jason Jordan, Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman and Finn Balor.
There were reports that Cena would be the guest referee for the Brock Lesnar versus Jinder Mahal match. However, with AJ Styles becoming WWE Champion on last night's edition of Smackdown, the Survivor Series main event was changed to Lesnar vs Styles.
If the plan was for Cena and Mahal to build to something for the future from the Survivor Series, it no longer made sense for Cena to be guest referee without Mahal a part of the equation.
