John Cena was brutally attacked on SmackDown this week. The GOAT was attacked by Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa after they attacked his Fastlane teammate AJ Styles. Fans may be wondering why no one has even come close to evening the odds against The Bloodline.
LA Knight would reportedly save John Cena on SmackDown. The megastar reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and WWE had no choice but to switch the segment to The Bloodline’s two-on-one attack on Cena.
Paul Heyman first mentioned the feud between LA Knight and The Bloodline a few weeks ago on SmackDown. The Wise Man called Knight the name and claimed he was a flash in the pan. The two also met during a backstage segment.
Knight was referring to Roman Reigns after his win against The Miz on the September 15, 2023 episode of SmackDown. On the same episode, AJ Styles came to the aid of John Cena against Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa.
The Phenomenal One’s problems with The Bloodline reignited after Jimmy Uso rudely interrupted Mia Yim during her segment with Adam Pearce. Styles took matters into his own hands by knocking Jimmy down with a right hand before being attacked by Solo Sikoa.
WWE still has two weeks to build up to the Fastlane main event with John Cena
LA Knight’s unexpected bout with COVID may have halted WWE’s announcement of the WWE Fastlane main event, but the promotion still has two weeks to complete the final match on the card centered around John Cena and possibly LA Knight vs. Jimmy, which I use and only build Sikoa.

Knight is expected to return to SmackDown next week to help Cena against The Bloodline. It’s possible that even AJ Styles could return from his storyline injury on the go-home episode of SmackDown for Fastlane for a big six-man tag team match for the live premium event on October 7th to prepare.
The six men would be Cena, Knight, Styles, Jimmy, Solo and Roman Reigns. It remains to be seen whether this is truly the fight WWE will announce for Fastlane 2023.
