After recently teasing a return to WWE, John Cena has added to the speculation surrounding his future.
Speaking to Nick Harley of Den of Geek, the 16-time world champion said that he “really, really wants to get back to WWE.”
John Cena was last seen in a WWE ring at WrestleMania 36. The event saw Cena clash with ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Funhouse match. The wild ride of spectacle saw Cena assume many of his former persona’s as well as turning out in the famous nWo black and white.
Cena initially said that the match is “something that I hold very close” before discussing how he would approach a return.
“I don’t think it’s about topping what you’ve done. I think it’s about correctly continuing a narrative. And I think that’s the most important thing. I mean, I main evented two WrestleMania’s with The Rock and then the very next WrestleMania I was in the middle of the card against the newcomer, and then I would move further shifting through the card against other veritable newcomers for tertiary titles or up to the point of being a fan at one point. But that was my contribution to the narrative. It wasn’t like I was jumping up and down saying, “I was the main event, so I need to continue being a main event.”
Expanding further, Mr Hustle, Loyalty and Respect, said that he’ll only return for “an enthralling and correct continuation to the narrative.”
“I always found a real sense of satisfaction contributing where I could, because I know that the idea of the sense of complacency with performers is high. And they always want to be at the top spot and there is only one top spot. But I believe a spot is a chance to contribute. So it won’t be about that. It will simply be if there is an enthralling and correct continuation to the narrative. I really, really want to get back to WWE. I really want audiences to get back to WWE.”
Speaking in April, Cena addressed his long absence from WWE. The highly decorated wrestler turned actor said that he’ll always be a WWE Supertar.
