The World Champions of Raw and SmackDown LIVE will collide at Survivor Series when Universal Champion Brock Lesnar clashes with WWE Champion Jinder Mahal in a Champion vs. Champion Match. To add intrigue, this match will feature a Special Guest Referee: John Cena.
The poster for this month’s Survivor Series pay-per-view has been leaked and it confirms a big rumor: John Cena will be the Special Guest Referee for the contest.
A fan who often sits in the middle of the front row at WWE television events wearing a neon green shirt with a smiley face on it apparently leaked the poster on his Twitter account.

It was first reported last month by PWInsider.com that Cena was slated to referee the match. Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter last week that Cena was one of the names being considered for the role, with the others being Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Steve Austin.
