John Cena could be returning to WWE very soon. A report by Fightful Select states that Cena will be making an appearance at some point in July 2021.
The report states that the former WWE Champion is due to make an appearance on WWE TV within the next 11 days. The planned date is July 23rd. This date will be the second epsiode of SmackDown with live fans in attendance. It is also the first edition of the blue brand following the Money in the Bank pay per view on July 18th.
The next pay per view event for WWE will be SummerSlam on Saturday August 21st in Las Vegas. It is highly possible that John’s appearance on SmackDown will set up a marquee match in Las Vegas.
John Cena has not been seen on WWE TV since WrestleMania 36. In this appearance, Cena took on The Fiend in a ‘Firefly Funhouse’ match. At the end of the match, the 16 time world champion lost and vanished following the defeat to Bray Wyatt.
Since this departure, Cena has appeared in multiple movies, and will star in the upcoming movie The Suicide Squad, which premieres in late July.
