If you missed it, John Cena has not retired from the WWE and finally admits that he will return to the ring.
WWE Superstar John Cena has accomplished what few professional wrestlers have achieved, mainstream success as he successfully transitioned from the ring to the silver screen. Cena was last seen in the ring at Wrestlemania 36 against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. Many fans assumed that his loss meant that he was finally leaving the WWE permanently to pursue his acting career. Apparently, that isn’t the case.
Speculation began when Cena posted a photo of the WWE logo in May. The cryptic post was not captioned but left many wondering if he would return.
The speculation is over as Cena confirmed he will return to the WWE on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week. During the clip, Cena confirms he will be returning but does not confirm exactly when.
“I’ll definitely be back to the WWE, I just don’t know when,” Cena told Fallon.
John Cena’s announcement made while promoting the release of Fast and Furious 9
John Cena never needs a reason to be a guest on the late-night talk show, but he was on to promote his upcoming movie, Fast and Furious 9. Cena will be making his debut in the latest installment, just one of the many movie projects that have kept him out of the squared circle. As Cena promoted the summer’s first blockbuster, the timing could mean that we may see him back in the WWE sooner than he’s willing to admit publicly.
With Summerslam right around the corner and Cena’s biggest movie project to date in theaters, it would appear that the star may have some time available to make a guest appearance at one of the WWE’s biggest yearly events. Triple H has shared with TMZ that he would like to have Cena at the event, but nothing is confirmed.
If you’re a John Cena fan, let’s hope the time is NOW.
