WWE Star and former 16-Time World Champion John Cena recently caught up with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to promote his new Mountain Dew campaign. During the conversation WrestleMania 37 came up as it’s just around the corner. Cena was expected to be a part of the event in some way, but it looks like that won’t be happening after all.
It’ll be the first time since WrestleMania 19 in 2003 that he hasn’t been apart of the event. Here’s what he had to say on things:
“Currently, I’m in Vancouver shooting Peacemaker, the series for HBO Max,” Cena said. “Given the quarantine regulations, if I were to leave Canada, upon return I would have to quarantine for another two weeks. Essentially, that would shut production down. Strictly based on the letter of the law right now, there is no logistical way I can be there. We film now until July.”
Cena also gave his thoughts on his name now being included among the part time stars that return for WrestleMania:
“What a hypocritical situation,” Cena said, laughing. “I used to be very open about the fact that part-timers were just that, and here I am at 44 years old and I’ve become what I despise, as they say. That is kind of what it is.”
WWE has already announced that WrestleMania 38 & 39 will take place in Dallas and Los Angeles. Although Cena won’t be able to make it this year, there is a good chance he may be able to make one or both of those events.
