What role will John Cena play at WrestleMania 40? Exploring the possibilities

John Cena has been absent from in-ring action for some time, currently focusing on his Hollywood career. His last match was against Solo Sikoa at Crown Jewel in 2023, after which he disappeared from WWE TV.

‘The Cenation Leader’ is set to make a surprise appearance at the Philadelphia event. While Cena may not wrestle at WM 40, his mere presence is expected to electrify the arena, and WWE fans are excited about it. Rumors suggest that ‘Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect’ will deliver a short but meaningful promo at the event.

John Cena’s possible role at WrestleMania 40

A recent update has potentially disclosed the possible role of the 16-time world champion, John Cena at WWE WrestleMania 40. After finishing his last WWE run at Crown Jewel 2023 in November, fans have been curious about when they will see the ‘The Champ’ in the ring again. As WrestleMania has a history of attracting the biggest stars, it’s expected by many fans that Cena may have some involvement on April 6th or 7th.

According to the latest “Wrestling Observer Newsletter,” Dave Meltzer shed light on Cena’s acting schedule and what we can expect from him at the ‘Greatest of All-Time’ in Philadelphia.

Meltzer said, “Cena will soon be filming a second season of “Peacemaker”. There has been some talk about Cena at Mania. It’s basically up to his acting schedule and if there is something going on. If there is, he may appear but couldn’t do anything that would be deemed a risk. We were told that if he does appear, the idea is to do something fun, short and memorable, and with substance.”

It’s important to note that the recent news may have an impact on Cena’s availability for WrestleMania, although it cannot be guaranteed. Cena has participated in a WWE match every year since his debut in 2002.

In fact, rumors are Cena will interfere in the Bloodline storyline. Last year he not only fought against Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39 but also made consistent appearances on television between late August and early November.

John Cena on side missions after hilarious Oscar appearance

John Cena has recently returned to the world of film and acting after taking an extended break from wrestling last summer. He has released his recent film, Ricky Stanicky, on an OTT platform. Furthermore, he has also joined OnlyFans to expand his online presence.

Recently, the 16-time World Champion has been seen in a Candy Crush Saga advertisement for TikTok. This marks a new work experience for Cena as he has not worked on this platform before. After his hilarious intro at the Oscars, fans hope to see this new side of the wrestler/actor at future events.

During an advertisement, John Cena is seen playing the role of a basketball coach, giving instructions and motivating two other actors who play the roles of players, to work hard and become the all-stars they were meant to be. The ad ends with the text ‘Get Your Own Coach.’

Apart from his Hollywood duties, Cena has also hinted at his appearance in WWE’s upcoming premier event, WrestleMania 40, scheduled to take place in Philadelphia in a week’s time. Additionally, some Easter eggs were noticed during last week’s RAW, suggesting that Cena will join ‘The Showcase of the Immortals’. As a result, fans have to wait and see if ‘The Champ’ appears and what contribution he could make to the audience at the ‘Biggest WrestleMania of all time’.
