We are in the midst of Road to Wrestlemania and we begin to see the first pieces that will make up the card of the two nights of the most important and exciting wrestling show of the year. Some matches have already been announced and scheduled, such as the one between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns for the unification of the two maximum titles, the one for the SmackDown female title between Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair and the one for the Raw female title between the champion.
Becky Lynch and challenger Bianca Belair. But we also have some things under construction, like the possible clash between Sami Zayn and Johnny Knoxville and the one for the female couple titles between Carmella and Queen Zelina and the brand new couple formed by Sasha Banks and Naomi.
And obviously the two possible appearances in the ring for a match of Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vince McMahon and many others. WWE is going all out to make WrestleMania 38 the biggest show possible, so it is natural for John Cena's name to come up in discussions for the event.
But will the 16-time world champion be there? Since then, Cena appeared at 17 straight editions of The Show of Shows. This includes surprise appearances in 2016 and 2019, with the former coming during his recovery from a shoulder injury.

A permanent member of the creative team informed us that: 'Cena was discussed, like everyone outside of everything, but Cena was never a real possibility." John Cena also had some dark matches when he returned for his feud against Roman Reigns, but at the moment he seems increasingly oriented towards his acting career, also because this year's Wrestlemania card is already filling up with many people.
outside the company. John Cena remains one of the most consistent stars in WWE history. He remained a full-timer from his debut in 2002 until 2017. The 16-time world champion first appeared at WrestleMania in 2004, where he defeated The Big Show to win the United States Championship.
