Cena has been filming Project X in China throughout the year, which has kept him out of the ring. He is scheduled to return to the ring on Dec. 26 at the Madison Square Garden live event. Cena will also be on next week's episode of SmackDown Live.

Also announced for the New Year's Eve edition of Raw is a steel cage match pitting Dolph Ziggler against Drew McIntyre. The former friends clashed in a triple threat bout, which also featured Finn Balor, on Monday's edition of Raw. Balor walked away with the victory, but Ziggler got a measure of revenge on McIntyre following the bout, laying him out with a Zig Zag.
