John Cena confirms his return to WWE

New, 39 comments

Reports and rumors have made it sound like a virtual lock that WWE and John Cena have reached a deal for his return to the promotion in July. The idea is that he’ll wrestle a match in August at SummerSlam 2021, possibly in the main event against Roman Reigns.

With Cena starring in Fast & Furious 9 alongside that candy ass Vin Diesel, the former WWE champion is busy doing media rounds to promote his Hollywood blockbuster that’s premiering this weekend in the United States.

During Cena’s appearance last night on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, the host asked what the deal is with all the rumors. Cena responded by saying he is indeed coming back to WWE:

“Those rumors are true. I’ll definitely be back to the WWE, I just don’t know when.”

Fallon then asked Cena why he posted a WWE logo on social media last month, to which Cena said:

“Yeah, so I posted that back in May. I was feeling rather nostalgic about the WWE, and I just wanted to post the logo. And some people took it as I was returning immediately, which that’s not the case. But I haven’t had my last match, and I can’t wait to have my next one.”

Finally, after running down all of his upcoming movies, Cena explained that movie insurance complicates his wrestling availability:

“Once you do one of these things, the insurance doesn’t let you go wrestle on the weekends, so we’ll see what happens.”

So, Cena is definitely coming back to WWE to wrestle a match, but he didn’t mention that it’s happening at SummerSlam.

How much are you looking forward to seeing John Cena back inside a WWE ring?
