The rumours started when Cena posted the WWE logo on his social media. Fans put 2 and 2 together and assumed Cena was returning to the ring soon. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.

“I posted that back in May. I was feeling rather nostalgic about the WWE and I just wanted to post the logo. Some people took it as I was returning immediately which that’s not the case.”

However, John Cena confirmed that he will definitely return, if not for numerous but one important reason.

“I haven’t had my last match and I can’t wait to have my next one.”

WWE is targeting John Cena for a huge PPV

It has been reported that WWE is planning to make SummerSlam the biggest event of 2021. The idea is to have John Cena vs Roman Reigns for the main event.

Undoubtedly, this will be a money-making match. Moreover, Reigns is the top guy on the roster, the WWE Universal Champion, and on top of his game as a heel.

Therefore, there is nobody better against whom John Cena can make his return.
