John Cena has vowed to his fans and wrestling devotees worldwide that he will return to WWE and that his career is not over just yet.
On February 1, John Cena shot down rumours that he would be making an appearance at WrestleMania 37 on April 10 and April 11, citing that there would be no logistical way it could happen thanks to his hectic filming schedule on Peacemaker in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
However, the former WWE Champion has promised that he is far from done with professional wrestling and will be back in World Wrestling Entertainment when time and worldwide circumstances allow in a recent interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon:
“I will be back in WWE. Unfortunately, the state of the world, 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. I can’t bounce back and forth due to international restrictions. At least for the time being, I’m here and away from WWE, but I very much look forward to returning as soon as I possibly can.”
With his sights set on a return down the line, John Cena hasn’t been a stranger to WWE by any means competing in the lauded Firefly Funhouse Match at WrestleMania 36 in 2020, as well as appearing in a specially shot video in January 2021 to announce the location of WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, California.
Filming has already begun on the HBO Max Peacemaker series, a spin-off of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie where the talent plays the vigilante of the same name.
He will also been seen across 2021 and 2022 in theatrical releases Project X-Traction, F9 and Vacation Friends as well as the host of television game show, Wipeout.
