John Cena recently spoke with The Belfast Telegraph and teased an appearance at WWE’s WrestleMania 36 in April.
“I can’t perform as much as the current ones, because I’m a little bit older, and I have these cool opportunities to do other stuff, but in doing other stuff, I’m not saying that world is shut off. I’m trying to bring this world with me, so we can all be involved in a movie conversation or a WrestleMania conversation,” Cena said. (H/T to Metro UK)
It was recently reported, via @Wrestlevotes, that Cena wants to do something substantial at WrestleMania 36, more than just an appearance like he did with Elias last year. Cena lives in the Tampa area and it seems like this WrestleMania is important to him, according to the report.
Cena has been focusing on his acting career while away from WWE. 2019 marked the first year since 2002 that Cena did not work a WWE pay-per-view match, but the 42 year old said he hopes fans will always view him as a member of the company, because he is, and he will never forget his roots.
“I hope they always view me as a member of the WWE, because I am,” Cena said. “Whether it’s watching the events or being able to participate, any chance I’m given to answer this question, WWE is my family. It’s weird that the culture is, you either do this or you do that, and for 20 years I’ve been trying to tell people, ‘No, it’s all really cool.’ So I don’t ever want to not be known as a WWE superstar.”
