The big news: John Cena is reportedly taking a break from pro wrestling for “personal reasons,” the Wrestling Observer reports. The Observer reports that Cena isn’t advertised for any shows after Hell in a Cell, including an upcoming 10-day European tour. However, Cena is being advertised for shows in December.
Cena is the current United States Champion, so it’s unclear what this means for the future of that championship, although he is defending the title against Set Rollins inside a steel cage Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
With ratings dropping, a Cena break probably has Vince McMahon freaked out.

The Rock is built Ford tough.
BIG NEWS: Excited to be in partnership with @FORD as their official #SpokesmanOfService. In my garage I own three FORD vehicles (F-150 is my baby) but my relationship with them began when I was 15yrs old and bought a classic blue '77 Thunderbird as my first car for $40 bucks (true story). I didn't even have money to put gas in it, but it was all mine and I've been a FORD man ever since. Representing their Service Department and the hard working FORD individuals committed to taking care of their customers echoes one of my core enterprise beliefs, "Always take care of the audience" and whether it's in a movie theater or behind the wheel, taking care of the people is what matters most. #BigPartnership #SpokesmanOfService #WeGetTheJobDone #AndGodBlessBlueThunderbirdsFor40Bucks
