The one time fixture of WWE television has been gone for the last few months filming a new show that will debut on Fox early next year. The show that John Cena was off filming the reality show called American Grit which will premiere in the spring for ten episodes. American Grit will feature sixteen men and women split into four teams, with four representatives from the US Military serving as mentors.
The contestants will compete in physical challenges. Each episode will feature an obstacle course, called "The Circus", which will be used to eliminate the weakest team. The winning team has the chance to win a $1 million dollar prize. This seems like an intriguing concept for a show and with how highly praised Train Wreck was over the summer I am not surprised that Cena got this opportunity.
Ask for when Cena will make his return back to the WWE, right now it seems as though John will be back for the December 26 live event in Madison Square Garden, and one would assume his Raw return would be the following Monday in Brooklyn. Also an interesting note is that John will actually only be featured on live events until after the Royal Rumble, then he will be back off the live event schedule following the Rumble until the WWE begins their tour of Germany on February 10.
