John Cena Addresses Crowd After All-Time Pop

Videos by OutKick

Sunday night, John Cena returned at Money in the Bank to one of the loudest pops that WWE has ever seen.

In case you were watching with sound off, when Cena’s music hit, it sounded like Stone Cold Steve Austin had made a shocking return.

When’s the last time you’ve seen that many people together and happy? Never? Thank you, Cena.

After the show went off-air, Cena addressed the still fawning crowd:

It’s clear from the stare-down that Cena will now challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam on Saturday, August 21. The current face of the company (Reigns) vs. the former face of the company (Cena). Should Cena want that title back, who is going to tell him no?

Cena has been away from WWE television since WrestleMania 36, back on April 5, 2020. It has been over two years since Cena last competed in an actual match. That is the longest Cena has ever gone without competing.

Movie career must be going pretty well…

Word is — and this is not confirmed by wrestling sources — the fans missed John Cena. They really missed John Cena. They badly missed John Cena.

It doesn’t make you a nerd to admit you are ecstatic about John Cena’s return. In fact, it makes you a liar if you say otherwise.

  1. Good lord Bobby, just get it over with and ask Shanghai Cena out already since its obvious you have a school-girl crush on him. It’s painfully obvious at this point that WWE has no idea what they’re doing if they’re having to resort to bringing back Cena or Rock or any other past-their-prime superstar to get eyeballs and a cheap pop. Is the talent development that bad that no present star is worth pushing over Reigns?

  2. John Cena is about as tough as a marshmallow and a fawning supplicant to China. I’d take any number of guys from my Chicago neighborhood who would smack him around like the simp he is. And this is the worst Outkick column ever.
