While rumors swirl about John Cena’s potential appearance at WrestleMania this weekend, No one has yet to confirm his presence in town. However, Cena’s schedule for the remainder of 2024 is set to keep him occupied off the WWE radar.

According to PWInsider.com, Cena will be busy filming the second season of the DC series Peacemaker from June through November in the Atlanta area. The shooting schedule is expected to wrap up around Thanksgiving, marking a significant commitment for the renowned wrestler-turned-actor.

The first season of Peacemaker, which starred Cena and was helmed by writer-director James Gunn, explored the backstory of the titular character introduced in DC’s The Suicide Squad. Gunn’s vision delved into Peacemaker’s complex motivations, depicting him as a morally ambiguous figure torn between his pursuit of peace and his willingness to resort to extreme measures to achieve it. Cena’s portrayal of Peacemaker, described by the actor himself as a “douchey Captain America,” received widespread acclaim, establishing the character as a fan favorite within the DC universe.

Peacemaker’s success in its debut season cemented its status as a major hit for DC and Max, setting the stage for an eagerly anticipated second installment. With Gunn’s creative vision and Cena’s compelling performance at the helm, expectations are high for the future of the series.


It’s also worth noting that Ringside News exclusively reported last week that there are no plans for John Cena or Steve Austin to actually participate in a match at WrestleMania 40 this year. So if he does decide to show up, it will most likely be in a cameo role of sorts.

As Cena’s focus shifts to his commitments with Peacemaker, WWE fans may have to wait until after Thanksgiving to see him make any major appearances in the wrestling realm. However, the prospect of Cena’s return to the ring remains an exciting possibility for fans, who eagerly await his next move in both the worlds of wrestling and entertainment.
