Recently, a lot is going on in the WWE. One of the major things that had been the talking point in WWE is the releases. Last year in November, WWE released superstars on two occasions.

Nia Jax, Keith Lee, John Morrison, and Karrion Kross were some individuals who got released in November 2021. And in 2022, WWE shocked everyone once again by releasing William Regal, Samoa Joe, and many other individuals.

Further, Cena mentions WWE is also bullish about continuing to hire new talents, and the NXT performance center is at the max capacity.

He added, “The NXT performance center is, I don’t want to say overwhelmed, but they are at max capacity. So you have all of these performers and a lot of them aren’t getting a chance to perform. I think that’s the real frustrating thing, both to the WWE and from a stance of a performer.”

When did John Cena last appear in WWE?

Because of his busy schedule, John Cena is absent from WWE currently. However, Cena will definitely love to appear in WWE whenever he gets a chance.
