John Cena says he hopes to return to WWE soon

The 20th anniversary of Cena's WWE television debut is coming up next month.

John Cena says he hopes to be back in WWE soon. 

He spoke with Adam's Apple recently regarding a potential return and also about the upcoming 20th anniversary of his WWE television debut. 

"I know in WWE years I turn 20 pretty soon, so that's a pretty big thing," Cena said. "And from a pretty storied class of folks: Batista, Randy Orton, Brock [Lesnar] who kind of all turned 20 this year. I'm aware that that's coming around the corner and who knows?" 

Cena made his WWE television debut on the June 27, 2002 edition of Smackdown. He answered Kurt Angle's open challenge on the show. 

The 16-time world champion would continue to say that he's not sure when he will be able to return, however. 

"There's a lot of cool stuff going on and I don't want to say no to any of these opportunities that are on my doorstep. So, I don't know when I'll be back but hopefully it's soon. I've been gone for too long," he continued.
