The Broken Skull Sessions episode with Rollins will air after the Extreme Rules pay-per-view later this month. The show will air on Peacock and WWE Network.

John Cena’s latest WWE run
John Cena returned for a brief run in WWE in July and confronted Roman Reigns at the Money in the Ban pay-per-view.
This set up a match between Cena and Reigns for SummerSlam, where Cena came very close to dethroning the Universal Champion. The 16-time world champion featured on a few live shows as well, dubbed the “Summer of Cena” by WWE.
Cena is also advertised to appear for a special show later this month when WWE returns to Madison Square Garden on September 10, which WWE is calling “Super SmackDown”. It remains to be seen if Cena will feature as advertised as he bid goodbye to fans following his SummerSlam match.
