WWE legend John Cena has confirmed his plans to return to WWE. John Cena hasn't been seen in action in WWE since he lost to Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36 back in April 2020. But the 16-time World Champion has now confirmed that he'll be returning to the ring soon.
Appearing on 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' this week, Cena addressed speculation about a potential return to the WWE and said, "Those rumours are true. I will definitely be back to the WWE, I just don't know when."

The wrestler turned Hollywood superstar - who stars in upcoming blockbusters 'Fast and Furious 9' and 'The Suicide Squad' this summer - has been busy with his film commitments of late.
There were widespread rumors of Cena’s return ever since he posted a photo of the WWE logo on his Instagram page back in May. Opening up on his cryptic Instagram post, Cena explained that he was just feeling "pretty nostalgic" and wasn't trying to announce a big comeback.
He said, “I was feeling rather nostalgic about the WWE and I just wanted to post the logo, and some people took it as I was returning immediately, which that’s not the case.” “But I haven’t had my last match and I can’t wait to have my next match.”
