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.
It was noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that things might still happen for John Cena and Austin Theory at WrestleMania.
For WrestleMania, the locked in matches at this point are Reigns vs. Rhodes for the Universal title, Charlotte Flair vs. Ripley for the Smackdown women’s title, Belair vs. the Chamber winner for the Raw women’s title, John Cena vs. Austin Theory (no word on whether this will or won’t be a U.S. title match)
It was noted that John Cena filmed a backstage angle with Austin Theory that has not aired yet. Cena laid that footage down while he was back the last time, but only time will tell how long it will be for him to return.
Cena would not be able to appear on television much to build up the match with Theory. They shot an angle on 12/30 in Tampa backstage that has yet to air. Cena is currently in Melbourne, Australia filming the movie “Ricky Stanicky,” a movie that Amazon Prime has bought the rights to, with Zac Efron. He will be there all of February and most of March.
It was noted in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Rousey and Shayna Baszler are currently slated to face IYO Sky and Dakota Kair for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at the show of shows.
