But, not long from now, John Cena appeared at WrestleMania 39 earlier this year. The purpose of his presence in the celebration was in a loss to Austin Theory. He also attended Money in the Bank this July 2023, where he lobbied for a future WrestleMania to be brought to London.

The Returning Reason

John Cena's return to WWE comes at a time when Hollywood's actors and writers are on strike with most film and television productions on hold. He has several film projects currently in limbo as the SAG-AFTRA strike continues. The strike is the likely impetus for Cena to make his way back into the squared circle, as actors are not promoting films being released or making new shows/movies at this time. While it was unclear if the strikes were one of the factors for his return, the 46-year-old actor, John Cena, has remained involved with the WWE.

It was also unclear if John Cena's return will continue into November and December 2023, but this was set to be his most regular string of appearances in years. As mentioned before, he was wrestled just once this year, losing to Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39, after making only one in-ring appearance during the 2022 calendar year.

Partner With Make-A-Wish

Throughout his SmackDown return, the WWE revealed that John Cena will partner with Make-A-Wish to host children and their families in each of the cities to experience a WWE event in person. Actually, John Cena was the most requested wish granter of all time, having granted more than 650 wishes for children across the world remembering his famous career which very influenced many people, especially children.
