He took to social media to do the infamous Royal Rumble entrance countdown and then showed his entrance. Of course, this could be a possible teaser and he may not come at all.

However, WWE is known for bringing back former Superstars at Royal Rumble matches. In 2021, WWE brought back Edge and Christian. While Edge continued working with WWE, Christian Cage moved on to AEW.

In fact, WWE has already announced that Mickie James will be a part of the Royal Rumble Women’s match.

John Cena could possibly be a part of the Royal Rumble too

As of this moment, The Champ is not a part of the WWE roster. Now, one doesn’t necessarily need to be a part of the roster to be a part of the Royal Rumble match.

The last time John Cena was working with WWE, he was working the SummerSlam 2021 main event against Roman Reigns. Considering his last WWE appearance was at a PPV, he could very well make a return at PPV as well.

The Royal Rumble matches are actually one of the best ways for a pro-wrestler to make an appearance without making any long-term commitment to the company.

As of now, it’s unknown if Cena will come back to WWE at all. However, if he does, he will leave the ceiling shaking all over again!
