Update on John Cena’s return to WWE
In his latest appearance on The Tonight Show John Cena revealed that he would make a return to WWE. Jimmy Fallon pointed out that 2020 was the first year since 2004 that John Cena couldn’t compete on WWE RAW. Fallon asked Cena whether he will be back somewhere down the line.
Cena’s response to the same was- “Oh yeah, I will! I just, unfortunately, you know… the state of the world, I mean, I’m not sitting there on the couch next to you. It’s a difficult and unpredictable time, and right now, I’m doing this. I’m filming ‘Peacemaker’, and that’s going to take a lot of my time, and I can’t bounce back and forth due to international restrictions. So at least for the time being.”
John Cena’s last WWE match was at WrestleMania 36
The last time John Cena wrestled in WWE was at WrestleMania 36 last year. He kicked off a feud with ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt on the Road to WrestleMania. He wrestled The Fiend in a Firefly Fun House match at The Grandest Stage of Them All. Cena spoke in depth about the match months later, in an interview with Sports Illustrated.
“I’ve had many experiences and many stories in WWE over my tenure there, and a lot of it has been embracing conflict and embracing the tale of good versus evil.This isn’t the first time I’ve done something like this. As with all the opportunities I get in WWE, I never try to be complacent and I always like to push the envelope.”
John Cena has made it clear that he will be back in WWE somewhere down the line. He recently revealed that he wouldn’t be a part of WrestleMania 37 this year.
