John Cena will be appearing at the WWE RAW scheduled to be held in Laredo, Texas on 27 June. The date of his return is of special importance to Cena as he first joined the company on the exact same date back in 2002. For those who don’t know, Cena made his Tv debut as a newbie who challenged Kurt Angle on SmackDown in 2002. Although Cena lost to Angle, he earned praise from WWE Universe and even legends like The Undertaker that night.
Will Cena fight?
Although WWE has announced that John Cena will be present in Texas for a fight, it’s still unclear if the veteran wrestler will take part in any of the real action in the ring or not. Talking about his last appearance in the ring, John Cena was last seen fighting against Roman Reigns in the Universal Championship at last year’s SummerSlam.
He did not take part in any of the fights since then and has been focusing on his new career. And John Cena is making it big with his acting roles as the wrestler-turned-actor has brought in huge success with his recent projects like his main role in Peacemaker or his 2021 part in the Suicide Squad.
