John Cena doesn't know if he'll be able to appear at WWE WrestleMania 38

Despite that, Cena said he loves WWE and isn't done with pro wrestling by a long shot.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, John Cena was asked if he'll be returning to WWE for this year's WrestleMania.

Cena said that, due to opportunities he has coming up, he doesn't know if he'll be able to make it to WrestleMania 38 this April. Cena said it depends on how those opportunities fall into place. But Cena said he loves WWE and isn't done with pro wrestling by a long shot.

"WrestleMania is usually in the cusp of late March, early April. I don't know if I'm going to make it this year. That's a good conundrum to have because there's a lot of good opportunities coming up, which I would love to take. And if all those things line up, I don't know if I'll be able to make WrestleMania," Cena said.

"But I will tell you and everybody out there watching, I'm not done with WWE by a long shot. That's my home, I love it. I was able to go back during the summer for a few months and entertain audiences when they welcomed audiences back to arenas. So, I've far from had my last performance."

Cena didn't appear at last year's WrestleMania in Tampa because there was no logistical way he could make it due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. Cena was in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to film his Peacemaker television series. That series premieres on HBO Max this Thursday.

In 2020, Cena faced "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in a cinematic Firefly Fun House match at WrestleMania 36.

Cena made his return to WWE for the "Summer of Cena" in 2021. That included him making televised appearances and working house shows. He returned at Money in the Bank and set up a match where he lost to Universal Champion Roman Reigns at SummerSlam.

WrestleMania 38 is a two-night event that's taking place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3.
