WWE enthusiasts are on the edge of their seats as whispers of legendary WWE superstar John Cena potentially making a special guest appearance at the imminent Payback event continue to circulate. While Cena is not slated for in-ring action, his presence as the special guest host promises to add an extra layer of excitement to the event.
Cena’s return to WWE TV is scheduled for Friday’s SmackDown, serving as the crucial go-home episode leading up to Payback. As of now, official confirmation is pending, but the WWE rumor mill suggests that a compelling storyline on SmackDown may pave the way for Cena’s much-anticipated guest hosting gig at Payback.
The 16-time World Champion is currently locked into nine WWE appearances, excluding Payback. However, his return to the squared circle is reserved for Friday, September 8, at the WWE Superstar Spectacular event in Hyderabad, India. There, Cena will join forces with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins to take on the formidable duo of Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci from Imperium, as recently announced by the wrestling giant.
Cena’s WWE comeback also comes with a heartwarming initiative. Collaborating with WWE and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Cena is set to host children and their families in each of the eight American cities where WWE events are scheduled. Cena’s unwavering dedication to granting wishes through Make-A-Wish is nothing short of extraordinary, with a staggering 650 wishes granted worldwide. He remains the most-requested Wish Granter in the organization’s history.
