Cena has been enjoying his time working in Holywood movies and appearing on many Television shows. He was not exactly sure when he plans to return to the ring. But he might make a comeback for more than one match.
“It’s been 20 years and I’m 45 years old, I only state that because I don’t know when you’re gonna see me in the ring again. I’m not saying you won’t, I just don’t know when that’s going to be.” he said
