John Cena is hoping to make a WWE return and get back inside of the squared circle soon.
He expressed his feelings while speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to promote his partnership with the FitOps Foundation.
Cena has been making the media rounds to promote his latest film, “Playing with Fire,” which is out in movie theaters now.
While talking about the partnership, which is a nonprofit committed to training and certifying veterans as personal trainers, Cena talked about how he can somewhat relate to them due to the experience he has away from WWE, which he misses.
“I can vaguely relate with my own experience away from WWE,” said Cena. “I’m so grateful to be doing some amazing things right now, but I still miss WWE and still ask myself, ‘Who am I?’ when I am not active with WWE. My identity was so closely tied to WWE for so long.”
Cena also was asked about Randy Orton’s challenge to WrestleMania 36 match. Cena didn’t address the challenge but did note that he hopes to get back inside of the WWE ring soon.
“I wasn’t even aware of that,” said Cena. “I never make the matches, I’m just grateful to be able to perform in WWE. Every day away from it, I miss it more and more and more. I’m becoming more honest with myself about how much I miss it. I’m very eager to get back into a WWE ring soon.
And on the subject of WrestleMania, I can tell you this—I haven’t missed a WrestleMania since my first appearance at WrestleMania 19, and I do not plan to miss a WrestleMania for decades to come.”
