The last time we saw John Cena in a WWE ring, he faced the Fiend at WrestleMania. The Firefly Funhouse match was a piece of cinematic brilliance and set the standard for the rest of 2020. As for John Cena, it marked the next chapter in his life, away from WWE. However, he is keen on returning.

In an interview with Den of Geek, John Cena opened up on the possibility of returning to the WWE.

“For 15 years, my life was a blur that had not much else in it except light blue canvas and ropes. And I love it for that. And I think now the audience is very understanding that I developed a similar sort of passion towards this. And you can’t be both places at once because one place will suffer or if not, both places will suffer.

“So I really do appreciate the respect from the often critical, and as Michael Cole says, a polarizing WWE universe to kind of allow me to take this chance and stand up and see what I got. I really do appreciate it, but I do look forward to returning.

“It won’t be about topping a Firefly Funhouse match. The first question I’ll ask is ‘Why?’ And the next question I’ll ask is ‘Where do we go after that?’ And if I get ‘I don’t know’ to both of them, that’s cool because that means I can come up with my own thing.”
