John Cena confirms WWE hiatus following SummerSlam loss

John Cena came back for a short WWE run starting last month that wrapped up at Saturday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event where he lost to Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

This was expected as before he made his return, it was reported that he agreed to a certain amount of dates through SummerSlam before going back to acting full-time.

Cena will soon head to England to film the “Argylle” spy thriller movie. Late Sunday night it was reported by PWinsider that WWE is moving forward with the understanding that Cena will not be available for the foreseeable future due to his Hollywood commitments.

The former WWE Champion took to Twitter to comment on his run being over for now:

“Words cannot describe how appreciative I am that the @WWEUniverse allowed me the opportunity to return and perform. Thank you staff, superstars, and most of all FANS for giving me an unforgettable summer at “home” with my “family”. The journey takes me away now but I’ll C U soon.”

It should be noted that Cena will work the September 10th SmackDown TV event from Madison Square Garden in New York City. It’s unclear whether WWE plans to use him on television or if he will just appear for the live crowd.
