As noted, John Cena will make his return to WWE TV on the July 4th SmackDown episode from Phoenix, Arizona.

It looks like we may see Cena appear on RAW and SmackDown as there's been talk of Cena being presented as a "free agent" once he returns, according to PWInsider. This storyline would allow Cena to appear for the red brand and the blue brand.

No word yet on feud plans for Cena but he's rumored to face WWE Champion Jinder Mahal soon after returning.
