John Cena is a very busy man and he is set to make a WWE return very soon. A new report about an exciting upcoming project has cast some doubt that Cena will be able to make WWE’s biggest party of the summer, but he is still locked in for the August 21st event.

Cena is currently slated to battle Roman Reigns, presumably with the WWE Universal Title on the line. That huge match has not been officially announced for Allegiant Stadium yet, but Las Vega is still reportedly getting a match from Cena this year.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, John Cena is now free from his acting responsibilities for the Peacemaker, and he is a lock for SummerSlam. His new film Argylle, a spy thriller with an absolutely all-star cast, will film in Europe in August. It’s unclear how Cena will make that filming work, but he is not missing SummerSlam for this new project.

No word on when he shows up for television, but Cena is free of responsibilities for acting work at this point and until after SummerSlam. Cena vs. Reigns is locked in as the main event for the show. However, Cena is in a movie called “Argylle,” a spy thriller which will be shooting in Europe in August. It’s possible he could start after or end prior to the date, or even get a few days off


It was previously thought that Argylle, co-starring Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, and Samuel L. Jackson, would cause John Cena to miss SummerSlam. Europe has some very strict pandemic protocol when it comes to quarantining. It appears that new project will not keep John Cena from wrestling. Hopefully, they can make it all work out without any unexpected situations rising up.
