John Cena may be returning to WWE soon.
There were unconfirmed rumors going around on Friday that said Cena’s WWE return was set to coincide with WWE’s return to the road in July, beginning with Money In the Bank Weekend.
In an update, it was reported by that Cena’s return is still being discussed for the first show back with fans in the crowd, which would be the July 16 edition of WWE SmackDown on FOX, airing live from the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.
As we’ve noted, WWE announced on Friday that they will return to the road with a 25-city tour that begins with that SmackDown in Houston. It will continue with the Money In the Bank pay-per-view on Sunday, July 18 at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, and a live RAW on July 19 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Tickets for those three shows go on sale this Wednesday, and WWE will be announcing the rest of the dates in the coming weeks. The 25-city schedule will run through Labor Day, which is Monday, September 6.
Cena has not been on WWE TV since losing to “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in the Firefly Fun House match at WrestleMania 37 in 2020. It was recently announced that Cena will executive produce and narrate a new WWE Evil series for Peacock and the WWE Network.
