John Cena arrived in London for Money in the Bank, and his appearance at the O2 Arena was a big surprise. Now, we are getting a bit more information about what he was doing at Money in the Bank, but that didn’t make his message any less clear.
John Cena said that London deserves a WrestleMania event. That statement was received very well by fans in the O2 Arena, and WWE really wants to bring WrestleMania to London as well. They just need to work something out with the host city.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that John Cena’s return to WWE for Money in the bank was kept a closely guarded secret. There are also no current creative plans for him to return for a match.
John Cena made a shocking return to WWE in London at WWE Money in the Bank. As was the case with several things on the show, WWE did very well at keeping it a secret, as it was kept very close to the vest, and almost no one knew that Cena would be there. He championed the idea of doing WrestleMania in London, something that Triple H didn’t seem prepared to follow up on after the show. We’ve learned a little bit more why.
As of now, WWE higher ups tell Fightful that Cena was only set for this show and didn’t have upcoming programs planned. Though that can always change if his schedule frees up. WWE were very happy with how things went for his appearance.
John Cena’s music popped London fans in a huge way. Nobody in the building, or watching at home, expected to see him. That being said, his appearance was a one-off, but it is also proof that you never know what can happen in WWE.
We will have to see if WWE finally gives London a WrestleMania event. That would be a huge extravaganza, but the truth is that London doesn’t need to pay WWE for tourism dollars.
John Cena could bring a lot of attention to any WrestleMania event, but will he ever wrestle again in London? Sound off in the comments!
