WWE legend John Cena may be set for a major return in July following a year-long absence from the squared circle.
Cena hasn’t wrestled since WrestleMania 36 when he lost a Firefly Fun House Match to ‘The Fied’ Bray Wyatt at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Leader of the Cenation has since focused most of his attention in Hollywood where he is following in the footsteps of fellow wrestling legends Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Dave ‘Batista’ Bautista.
According to the Wrestling Observer, however, the 16-time world champion could potentially return in the summer.
And a potential comeback could align with WWE‘s plans to reinstate live events in July, close to Money in the Bank’s date, which will see fans returning to the stands.
Vince McMahon‘s promotion recently announced its plans to bring back live events with the WWE faithful in attendance from July 16 onwards.
That is when SmackDown will be aired from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and fans are expected to come back for the first time in over a year as COVID-19 restrictions are expected to be eased.
Thus, Cena could make his major comeback on the blue brand where his stunning career took off in 2003.
Recent reports suggest the former World Heavyweight Champion is wrapping up the filming of the Peacemaker spin-off series, from James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, in Vancouver.
The 44-year-old grappler is considered as one of WWE’s greatest ever legends but there are still some major goals left to be achieved.

The Intercontinental Championship has always eluded him, which means he is shockingly enough not a WWE Grand Slam Champion yet.
Cena also shares the record of most world title wins with two-time Hall of Famer Ric Flair.
Therefore, another world title run would see him surpassing Flair and cementing a brand new legacy in professional wrestling.
