As noted, Cena, who is currently filming the second season of FOX's American Grit, will return to WWE at the December 26th live event at Madison Square Garden. He is expected to take another hiatus early next year to film Kay Cannon's directorial debut, The Pact. He plays one of the leads in the movie, alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz, who play three parents who learn about their daughters making a pact to lose their virginity on prom night and go out to try to stop them.
