As announced Tuesday night on WWE Backstage, 16-time world champion John Cena will make his return to the wrestling world on the Feb. 28th edition of Friday Night Smackdown, just one night removed from WWE Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia.
Cena made only sporadic appearances in WWE during 2019. After endorsing Becky Lynch in January, and appearing as the “Dr. of Thuganomics” at WrestleMania 35, Big Match John was last seen on the July 22nd edition of Monday Night Raw, briefly rapping with The Usos.
It is unknown whether or not Cena will be involved in this year’s WrestleMania event, although he did note in an interview with SI that he promised to at least be in attendance in Tampa Bay.
