John Cena hasn’t graced the squared circle since his fateful encounter with Solo Sikoa at WWE Crown Jewel. As he made his exit on that memorable night, he graciously acknowledged the audience with a bow. Cena has frequently mused about his uncertain future in the ring, and as WrestleMania looms on the horizon, his availability remains a question mark.

In recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cena humorously pondered the prospect of his WrestleMania 40 appearance and questioned if he would be free during that weekend.

“I don’t know if I’ll be free that weekend, but it is a weekend, and movies don’t typically shoot on the weekends,” he quipped. “But when I say I’m done— in WWE, they say never say never, and a lot of people retire and then make surprising comebacks. I’m just being honest with myself. There’s such a phenomenal new generation of talent now. It’s time to pass the electrifying torch on to those who can be there every day.”

It’s worth noting that Cena did compete at WrestleMania 39, where he faced Austin Theory and ultimately experienced defeat.


As fans eagerly await any news regarding his involvement in WrestleMania 40, the uncertainty surrounding Cena’s future in the ring adds an intriguing element to the upcoming event.
