There are more details regarding WWE legend John Cena making a surprise appearance at the Money in the Bank event in England.
The WWE Money in the Bank Premium Live Event was considered a massive success with great matches and plenty of memorable moments. One of those memorable moments featured on WWE TV for the first time in three months, which is when he lost to Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39.
While WWE fans are likely clamoring for the future Hall of Famer Cena to have one more match, he gave no indication about that. Instead, he was there to talk to the vocal London, England crowd about bringing WrestleMania to England for the first time ever.
John Cena did a passionate promo telling the fans that he wanted WWE to bring WrestleMania to England because they are among the best fans in the world. The promo was interrupted by the cocky Australian Grayson Waller from Smackdown. After Waller insulted England and Cena, he tried a cheap attack on Cena, which was a mistake because Cena fought back and dropped Waller with an Attitude Adjustment, much to the delight of the crowd.
In an update on John Cena’s surprising WWE return, Fightful Select reports this was only a one-off appearance for Cena and he doesn’t have any upcoming programs planned in WWE. That can always change if his schedule allows him time in WWE and if he wants to be there.
It was reported that WWE did a great job of keeping John Cena’s appearance quiet because almost no one knew that Cena was going to be there.
The story from Fightful added that with WrestleMania 40 going to Philadelphia in 2024, the company is in the later stages of trying to finalize where WrestleMania 2025 (that’s 41) will be. The Fightful story noted it will likely be a city in the United States. That means the earliest that WrestleMania could go to London, England is in 2026 unless something drastic happens.
There was also a survey taken by WWE during the week asking what cities in the United Kingdom would be convenient for a “hypothetical” Royal Rumble or SummerSlam-type show. Some of the cities listed were London, Birmingham and Manchester in England along with Glasgow in Scotland. WrestleMania wasn’t mentioned on that survey.
Lastly, the Fightful report noted that WWE was very happy with John Cena’s appearance at Money in the Bank. Clearly, the fans in London were happy to see him too.
