John Cena is scheduled to return to WWE television next week but it doesn’t look like he’ll be around for much longer.
Vince McMahon announced this week that Cena is back in WWE. He is advertised for next week’s Raw and SmackDown Live. There’s no word on what is planned for him but we do know that he will likely not be part of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view because he is set to start filming another movie beginning on January 20.
Cena has told people that he plans on being at WrestleMania so it looks like he will be wrestling on that show this year but we don’t know yet who his opponent will be.
Cena is advertised to appear on the following live events:
Madison Square Garden, New York – Dec. 26
Nassau Coliseum, New York – Dec. 27
Royals Farms Arena, Baltimore — Dec. 28
PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh – Dec. 29
Amalie Arena, Tampa, Fla. – Dec. 30
Columbus Civic Center, Columbus, Ga. – Jan. 4
Donald L. Tucker Civic Center, Tallahassee, Fla. – Jan. 5
Hertz Arena, Ft. Myers, Fla. – Jan. 6
Amway Center, Orlando, Fla. – Jan. 7 (Raw)

Knoxville Civic Coliseum, Knoxville, Tenn. – Jan. 12
Von Braun Civic Center, Huntsville, Ala. – Jan. 13
FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tenn. – Jan. 14
Note: Raw will be taped on December 28 in Detroit, which means that Cena might not be at the December 28 live event in Baltimore.
