Business is picking up for WrestleMania season, which means there’s no telling who might return in the weeks to come.
This week on WWE Backstage it was confirmed that 16 time WWE World Champion John Cena will be returning to the blur brand for the upcoming February 28 episode from Boston, MA.
Cena hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since the Raw Reunion episode back in July of 2019.

It’s been some time since John Cena has appeared on a WWE pay-per-view, but he made it clear during a recent interview that he wants to be part of WrestleMania 36.
“It works different for everybody. I always look for them to give me ideas and then me kind of make it my own. I know that we have a small large event called WrestleMania around the corner, that just so happens to be in Tampa, and that’s kind of where I live. So, I’ll be in the neighborhood, and Suicide Squad should be done, but it’s not like I call someone up and be like, ‘I want to be in WrestleMania.’ Those spots are very coveted. There are performers who work all year, 250 shows a year, they earn those spots. I would love to earn one, at least. And the way you do that is by Vince McMahon, the head of creative, calling you up and being like, ‘Hey pal, I’d like you to do this.’ And then I say yes sir, and then I kind of put my own spin on it.”
