John Cena Gives Update On His WWE Future And WrestleMania Status

John Cena says he will likely miss WrestleMania 38 in April.

Cena appeared on The Ellen Show this week to promote The Peacemaker on HBO Max, and was asked about his WWE future, and if he will be at WrestleMania 38 on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 in Texas.


"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 said. "And that's a good conundrum to have because there's a lot of good opportunity 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."

John Cena continued and said he is far from done with the squared circle.

"But I will tell you and everybody watching, I'm not done with WWE by a long shot," he said. "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."

Cena, who turns 45 on April 23, has not worked a program since losing to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at SummerSlam in late August. He returned on September 10 for a dark main event at the SmackDown at Madison Square Garden, teaming with The Mysterios for a six-man win over The Bloodline, but he has been away since then.
