John Cena: It’d Be Great To See The Rock Come Back To WWE, But He’s Earned The Right To Choose

John Cena is enjoying a successful career in Hollywood, but he recently came “home” to WWE. He worked a full slate of events, which the company branded “The Summer of Cena,” and fans continue to wonder whether The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) could make a similar comeback.

In an interview with Lauren Zima of Entertainment Tonight, Cena made it clear that while he’d like to see The Rock come back to WWE, he has earned the right to make the choice himself, without being pressured to do so.

“He’s earned the right not to be pressured into that choice,” said Cena. “I can say he is a fan of the WWE. He is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. So as a fan do, I want to see one of the greatest performers of all time step back in the WWE ring? Yeah. But in no way am I gonna call him and if I’m gonna talk to him about something, it’s not gonna try to be to get him back in the WWE ring. He needs to come to that conclusion by himself.”

“Because then, his performance will be, The Rock, he’ll be the best he can be. So I do hope he comes back, as a fan, and I hope it’s wonderful, and if he chooses not to, he’s earned the right to choose not to.”

Following his loss to Roman Reigns at WWE SummerSlam, Cena issued a farewell statement of sorts, but he has previously been advertised for the September 10 show in Madison Square Garden.
