In the last ppv aired by WWE only on Saturday night, John Cena had his physical return to the WWE after more than a full year from his last actual appearance. The last match before the one against Roman Reigns on Saturday, in fact, dated back to Wrestlemania 36, where Cena faced The Fiend in one of the first 100% film matches of the company, defined by many fans as a non-match, and above all criticized for the little struggle that was inside it.
Saturday night, however, not only did Cena return to in-ring activity, but he also suffered two sensational blows at the hands of the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns and at the hands of the returning Brock Lesnar, who attacked him in his return after more than a year of absence, with his last match going back to the same event in which Cena had performed for the last time: Wrestlemania 36.
Backstage news on John Cena
Apparently, as confirmed unofficially by PWInsider's Mike Johnson, it would appear that John Cena should be absent again for the filming of a new film, with his appearances stopping from one week to the next, waiting for his new one.
stint. In the latest updates on the site, Johnson wrote: "We are told that Cena is done with future WWE appearances to film some new projects. Currently, Cena is only slated for the September 10th Friday Night Smackdown appearance at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Beyond that, WWE is looking ahead and has already put their soul in peace knowing that he will have off-limits periods due to his film projects. There is currently no timetable for his potential return, our WWE sources confirmed this tonight."
After the Summerslam debacle, therefore, John Cena will return to Hollywood and for the moment he will not return to take revenge on the A blow from Lesnar, so we will have to wait a little longer before we know how this feud will turn out.
In total, Cena took part in 14 matches for WWE throughout July and August 2021. Six of those bouts were dark matches on shows like RAW and SmackDown, and he has wrestled at live events on seven occasions lately. The only recent televised match featuring John Cena saw him lose against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam.
Reigns was even confronted by a returning Brock Lesnar at the end of the pay-per-view, and it seems that The Beast Incarnate will challenge for the Universal Championship soon.
