John Cena has been hard at work on the Peacemaker series for HBO Max. That project is wrapping up in early July, giving him plenty of time to make SummerSlam. The word is that Roman Reigns will defend the WWE Universal Title against Cena at the biggest party of the summer. Cena knows enough abut the pro wrestling business to understand you don’t give away that kind of surprise.

While talking to Fox Sports, John Cena was asked about a possible WWE return. He was very coy and expertly avoided answering the question. He seemed to also play dumb and ask “What’s in Vegas?” when he knows all too well that is the SummerSlam location.

Cena was asked, what he will be doing on August 21st. He said “hopefully enjoying the Summer.” When asked if he will be going to Vegas, he asked, “What’s in Vegas?”

“I heard there’s something called SummerSlam?” Hitchcock followed-up with her question. Cena just smiled and pointed at her before saying, “That was a good way to do that.” He did not outright answer her.


John Cena might return to face Roman Reigns, but it won’t likely be a full-time return. It will still be nice for WWE fans to have a little bit of the 16x Champion’s time before he runs back to Hollywood for another string of obligations.

WWE is also getting back on the road. It will be interesting to see how many dates they can schedule for John Cena during this reported return to the company this time around.
