For months now we have been talking about John Cena and his failure to return to Wrestlemania 37. It has been years and years that John Cena has not skipped an edition of the Showcase of the Immortals and this year, due to urgent television engagements, the leader of Cenation had to decline the invitation of the WWE to take part in his show par excellence, despite the famous rapper from Boston had wanted to participate with all of himself in the event.
Due to the recordings of his new TV series dedicated to The Peacemaker, John Cena had to skip all the important shows of Wrestlemania Week, not showing up even after a year from his last appearance, which arrived at the Performance Center in the last edition of Wrestlemania, in his last match which was staged with Bray Wyatt, in the very first and historic Firefly Fun House match in the history of the company.
John Cena on his potential WWE return
In his last and important interview, the actor and wrestler John Cena wanted to talk again about returning, referring to the reasons that always push him to return to the McMahon rings, but at the same time also dictating the rules that will push him to return.
To the microphones of the Den of Geek, the multiple WWE world champion said: "I always feel a sense of real satisfaction when I do it because I know that the performers' idea of complacency is very high. Everyone wants to get to the top, but there's only room for a few up there.
But I think a commercial is a chance to contribute. So it won't be for that. I want to return only if there is an interesting and correct continuation of the narrative. I really, really want to go back to WWE. How I want the live audience to come back to WWE.
Hell, I'm one of those who is hoping and shouting most of all that he wants the world to get back to normal soon, but these are interesting times and interesting opportunities come to everyone's feet, even mine, and I really appreciate that WWE and his Universe understand this after so many years.
However, I look forward to my return. I don't want to finish at the top with the Firefly Funhouse match. The first question is 'Why?' and the one after that is 'Where do we go after that?' and if the answer is 'I don't know' to both questions, it will be cool because it will mean that I can come up with something of my own."
John Cena's last 'match' was the Firefly Fun House cinematic offering with 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36. The 16-time WWE champion technically lost the bout, but it happened following a highly cinematic portrayal of John Cena's career.
