– WWE presents one of their biggest episodes of Smackdown on Friday highlighted by the return of John Cena, who not only will be making an appearance but will be wrestling in his first match of 2022. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the belief is that Cena will be involved in more than just this one match and that a “major storyline” is likely being planned that will involve him at WrestleMania and possibly even the Royal Rumble.
– While not confirmed, most are assuming that Cena will work WrestleMania and as such, is working on his schedule to make sure the logistics work out. However, Cena will be unavailable to WWE for most of February and March as he is out of the country filming a movie. At one point, a rumored match for WrestleMania was Cena vs. Austin Theory, however, that was talked about several months ago – in fact, when Vince McMahon was still around and running creative.
