Newly implicated in the “AJ scandal” that forced Ms. Lee to resign as Raw’s General Manager Monday, John Cena will face questions asked directly by the WWE Universe during the live WWE Hell in a Cell Pre-Show Sunday. Fans will be able to submit questions via Twitter, Tout and Facebook, using the hashtag #CenaPreShow.
The Pre-Show — which will stream live on WWE.com, Facebook.com/WWE and YouTube.com/WWE starting at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT — will mark Cena’s first appearance before the WWE Universe since “the AJ scandal” became public. Questions need not be limited to the embattled now-former GM, though.
AJ resigned as Raw’s GM hours after being called into an impromptu meeting with the WWE Board of Directors Monday. In resigning, AJ left a post that she held since July 23. Her temporary successor, Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero, later accused AJ of having an affair with a Superstar, and WWE cameras caught AJ informing Cena that he was the alleged Superstar.

Cena has outright denied claims of an affair, saying only that he and AJ had a “business meeting” the week before. AJ has concurred with his account.
However, on Sunday, before the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, the WWE Universe will get its chance to ask the hard questions of the Cenation leader. What will happen when the 12-time World Champion, who was already engulfed in a volatile rivalry with WWE Champion CM Punk before the “AJ scandal” broke, faces the scrutiny of the WWE Universe?
