John Cena, a name synonymous with WWE for many around the world, says he is “not done” with WWE. One of the few who lays a strong claim to be on the Mount Rushmore of Pro-Wrestling, the Leader of the Cenation was the face of WWE for more than 2 decades. However, in recent times ‘The Champ’ has been nothing more than a part-time wrestler due to his incredibly busy schedule as a successful Hollywood actor.
However, ‘The Show of Shows’ is one event where John Cena always comes back with only WrestleMania 37 being a glaring exception.
John Cena made an appearance on the 11 January edition of The Ellen Show to promote his upcoming project ‘Peacemaker’ – a spinoff of DC’s Suicide Squad.

During the show, John Cena addressed his future with WWE and whether or not he will make an appearance at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas. “WrestleMania is usually in the cusp of late March, early April. I don’t know if I’m going to make it this year,” Cena told Ellen.
“That’s a good conundrum to have because there’s a lot of good opportunities coming up, which I would love to take.”
“And if all those things line up, I don’t know if I’ll be able to make WrestleMania.”
As for his future beyond that, he added: “But I will tell you and everybody out there watching, I’m not done with WWE by a long shot.
“That’s my home, I love it. I was able to go back during the summer for a few months and entertain audiences when they welcomed audiences back to arenas. So, I’ve far from had my last performance.”
So, there you have it, folks. We might not get an appearance from Mr. Hustle. Loyalty. Respect at WrestleMania 38 but what are surprises for?
Do you think John Cena will return at WrestleMania 38?
