Cena previously had also gave some hints about his return. In an interview with Adam Glyn in ‘Adam’s Apple’ show, he teased and sarcastically said, “I know in WWE years, I turn 20 pretty soon, so that’s a big thing from a pretty storied class of folks. Batista, Randy Orton, Brock, we kind of all turn 20 this year. I am aware that is coming around the corner, and who knows. But it is one of those hard truths to bare, there is a lot of cool stuff going on and I don’t want to say no to any of these opportunities that are on my doorstep. I don’t know when I will be back, but hopefully, it is soon. I have been gone for too long.”
John Cena is currently impressing the audiences with his stellar acting performance in ‘Peacemaker’ (2022) series. Next he is gearing up of ‘Fast X’, a sequel of ‘F9’, which is currently marked to be released in 2023.
