WWE legend John Cena has progressively moved away from the wrestling world in recent years. His career in Hollywood has led him to significantly reduce his appearances in the ring, now limited to a few sporadic events. Also due to the effects of the pandemic, the leader of the Cenation did not even take part in the 2021 edition of WrestleMania.
His last official match therefore remained the one against The Fiend which was staged at the Showcase of the Immortals last year. The Bostonian recently posted the WWE logo on his Instagram profile, and fans have started speculating about his possible return to the square.
During a long interview, Jimmy Fallon asked him what the concrete meaning of that image was. Cena said: "I posted that photo in May. I was feeling quite nostalgic and wanted to post the WWE logo to show that I missed wrestling.
Some people have interpreted that gesture as symptomatic of my immediate return, but that was not the case. What I can say is that I haven't played my last match yet and that I can't wait to get back into the ring."
On LADbible microphones, Cena was asked to select his favorite WWE move of each era. He said: "Obviously I can't mention the moves that are in my arsenal, I think. I've always liked Steve Austin's Stone Cold Stunner.
I don't want to disrespect Kevin Owens, but Stone Cold's immediately comes to mind." To be honest, KO isn't the only superstar to have used the Stone Cold Stunner since the WWE Hall of Famer retired. officially in 2003.
Suffice it to say that - in 2015 - Cena himself performed a variation of Austin's move against Rusev at WrestleMania 31 (the so-called 'Springboard Stunner'). John's sequence began with a jump from the ropes.
