Cena replied:

It had been rumored that John Cena would be the guest referee for the Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal main event, but WWE apparently changed course and decided to book a title change for Tuesday’s SmackDown, setting up Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. new WWE Champion AJ Styles.

Rusev, who had been campaigning for the final open spot on Team SmackDown, joked that Cena qualified for the match fair and square.
