John Cena failed to appear on Friday’s SmackDown, leading many to think his WWE return last week was a one off.
John Cena is a 16-time World Champion in WWE, being the face of the company for over a decade. This was until he shifted to a part-time schedule back in 2017. Many fans have been wanting to see Cena make his return at this year’s WrestleMania but it is doubtful it will even happen. He has also worked in several films over the years, including Fast and Furious 9, The Suicide Squad, and others. John Cena’s real fight with fired WWE star also leaked previously.
John Cena challenged Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view last year and despite working his hardest, he was unable to beat the Tribal Chief for the title. He has also not been seen on WWE television since the SummerSlam encounter with the Tribal Chief.
John Cena was a bodybuilder and an avid one at that before he turned to a career in the world of professional wrestling. John Cena’s transformation from a pro wrestling star to a Hollywood actor has been a long and difficult road for him.
According to a recent story from the Wrestling Observer, everything in the ring during Cena and Kevin Owens’ match against Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn was claimed to be done very carefully. Cena was well-protected considering how long he’d been out of the ring.
John Cena delivered the Attitude Adjustment on Reigns for the pin, while Owens hit the Stunner on Zayn. FOX actively promoted the match during their NFL games. As a result, there was an expectation that Cena would hit the move and look strong.
