The WWE Universe will be able to see John Cena one more time in 2022.
It was first announced by Variety that Cena will be appearing live on the last episode of SmackDown in 2022, which will be taking place on Friday, December 30th. WWE would also announce the news during the December 9th broadcast.
This will be the 16 time world champion’s second appearance on WWE TV this year. Previously, Cena would show up on the June 27th Raw to mark exactly 20 years since the debut of the former WWE Champion. In that appearance, Cena would tell the fans that he doesn’t know when he will next be inside a WWE ring competing.
John Cena’s most recent match in WWE took place at Summerslam 2021, where Cena faced Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, hoping to break the record and become a 17 time world champion. Reigns would win the match, adding Cena to the lengthy list of stars beaten by The Tribal Chief.
The December 30th episode of SmackDown will be taking place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. Both John Cena and Roman Reigns have been advertised to appear live at the event. At the time of writing, no matches have been announced.
