WWE’s initial set of dates for John Cena’s return tour ended at SummerSlam. But a little while after that, the company added a date to “The Summer of Cena” - Fri., Sept. 10 in Madison Square Garden.
Saturday night in Vegas sure looked like a write-off, though. First Cena was beaten clean by Roman Reigns, then he was beaten up by Brock Lesnar after The Beast made it clear he was coming for Reigns. PWInsider reports the 16 time WWE World champ has “is done with future WWE appearances due to filming commitments.”
Now, John’s jumped on Twitter to say goodbye...
Words cannot describe how appreciative I am that the @WWEUniverse allowed me the opportunity to return and perform. Thank you staff, superstars, and most of all FANS for giving me an unforgettable summer at “home” with my “family”. The journey takes me away now but I’ll C U soon.— John Cena (@JohnCena) August 23, 2021
But he’s also made it clear that his next gig is filming Argylle with director Matthew Vaughn and a star-studded cast (Henry Cavill, Samuel L. Jackson, Sam Rockwell, Bryan Cranston, Bryce Dallas Howard & Catherine O’Hara) in Europe, so taking a break to bump around with the Mysterios might not be in the cards.
We’ll find out. In the meantime, salute to Big Match John for a fun summer run.
