John Cena may have a been a polarising figure when it comes to the crowd, but nobody can deny what he did for WWE over the years.
There has been plenty of speculation on when, or indeed whether, he will return to the company considering all the other opportunities he has in front of him.
Speaking with Den Of Geek, ‘The Doctor Of Thuganomics’ has discussed that it is more about the opportunity being right, and that he holds no desire to simply return in a top spot.
I always found a real sense of satisfaction contributing where I could, because I know that the idea of the sense of complacency with performers is high. And they always want to be at the top spot and there is only one top spot. But I believe a spot is a chance to contribute. So it won’t be about that. It will simply be if there is an enthralling and correct continuation to the narrative. I really, really want to get back to WWE. I really want audiences to get back to WWE. Heck I’m with everybody I think around the world saying I just want the world to get back to normal.
The ‘match’ everyone recalls from recent years is Cena’s Firefly Fun House encounter with Bray Wyatt.
Cena holds this match dear to him, given the creative freedom a concept like this gave.
I remember specifically asking what a Firefly Funhouse match was. And the answer was literally, “We don’t know.” And in most performers that would cause panic, but I was just riveted by the open field that we could possibly create something special. And like you said, it took a lot of brave folks and a lot of hard work to make something that hopefully the audience understood.
Many rumoured Cena could have returned along with the live crowd at WrestleMania 37, but this didn’t materialise.
Still, it’s not like to be too long before we Cena return in some way.
