Former franchise player of WWE, John Cena, has provided an uneasy acknowledgment to the rumours of him appearing or competing at Summerslam.
JOHN CENA IS BEING STRONGLY RUMORED TO APPEAR AT WWE SUMMERSLAM
Rumours of John Cena’s appearance at the 2021 edition of WWE’s second-largest yearly event has been rising. WWE plans to hold the event as a major show and the presence of a superstar such as the 16 times World Champion must help the company in achieving their goal.
Rumours point the possibility of “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns defend his WWE Universal Championship against Cena at the event on August 21, 2021 at Las Vegas. If Reigns wins, his reign shall become even more solidified and he can move on to the rumoured WrestleMania match against his cousin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. If “The Franchise Player” manages to dethrone Reigns, then it shall cause the long-standing record of Ric Flair’s World Championship count as acknowledged by WWE to finally break.
Ric Flair’s long-standing record of 16 World Championships is acknowledged by WWE, and is tied only by Cena. Flair himself names 21 World Championship reigns, 5 of which are not recognized by the company. “The Leader Of Cenation” has long been as the man who break the record but has not been able to do it yet. Chances of it happening was thought to be over since Cena stopped being an active professional wrestler to further his Hollywood career. Meanwhile, Randy Orton had been coming close to the record and fans now regarded him as the person to break the record. However, the original option may return if the F9 star appears at Summerslam.
HE PROVIDED AN AWKWARD ANSWER TO THE SUMMERSLAM QUESTION
While promoting his movie F9, the ninth instalment of The Fast & Furious franchise which will be screened at the upcoming edition of Cannes Film Festival, Cena said to Tara Hitchcock: “Hopefully, enjoying the summer. I don’t know.”
When asked further, he went on to say that he had a lot on his table and he did not want to hurt the feelings of his fanbase by raising expectations Without any surety of fulfilment.
He has not been seen in WWE since WrestleMania 36, when he lost to “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in a cinematic match recalling the history of his WWE career.
