On Wednesday night's edition of "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, John Cena addressed his impending return to WWE.

"Those rumors are true," Cena said when questioned about rumors that he'll be making his return to the ring. "I'll definitely be back to the WWE. I just don't know when." Cena said he hasn't had his last match and he can't wait to have his next one.

When asked about posting a WWE logo on his Instagram account last month, Cena said he was feeling rather nostalgic about WWE but it didn't mean that he'd be returning immediately.

Fallon and Cena then listed the upcoming film projects that Cena has coming out. “All these opportunities have led to more opportunities,” Cena said. "I've said before, once you do one of these things, the insurance doesn’t let you go wrestle on the weekends. So we’ll see what happens."

Cena vs. Universal Champion Roman Reigns has been rumored to be the main event of this year's SummerSlam. The pay-per-view is taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, August 21. Following next month's Money in the Bank event, SummerSlam will be the second PPV in WWE's return to touring.

In an interview with Chris Van Vliet earlier this month, Cena also confirmed that his WWE return was a matter of when and not a matter of if.

Cena hasn't wrestled since his Firefly Fun House match against "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36 in 2020.

Cena was appearing on "The Tonight Show" to promote Friday's release of "F9" (Fast & Furious 9). His full interview is available to watch below.

Cena also played a "30 Seconds To..." game with Fallon:
