As noted over the weekend, John Cena seemed to hint at a match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania by posting a photo of Taker on his Instagram account.
Cena underwent shoulder surgery in early January. The normal recovery time for the surgery is around six months, which would put his return in July, however Cena has been known to return way earlier from surgeries than expected. Cena posted on Twitter this morning that he's been "putting in twelve hours a day for the past six weeks to try and defy science."
Alright #DAYTONA500 fun is over. Back to work. Putting in 12 hours a day for the past 6 weeks to try and defy science. It's make or break ?— John Cena (@JohnCena) February 22, 2016
As noted, Cena spoke with FOX Sports at the Daytona 500 yesterday and said that he would make the show if he was physically able.
"As far as me participating in WrestleMania 32, the Magic 8-Ball says 'ask again later,'" Cena joked. "It would be personally unfortunate for me to miss WrestleMania, but if I can't perform, it would be unfortunate for the people watching WrestleMania to see me suffer through something that isn't worthy of the event. I take a very unselfish approach to my job and what I do because people spend their hard-earned money to enjoy what we do, and our goal is to deliver the best show possible. If I can contribute to that, great. If I can't then, it not helping any of fans ... we'll see how it works."
