WWE made it official on Monday night when the sports entertainment company announced that former WWE Champion John Cena would be returning to Monday Night Raw next week in Chicago, Illinois.
Cena, who has not been seen inside of a WWE ring since Survivor Series in November, is still a free agent. Thus, he can appear on both Raw and SmackDown TV.
Dave Meltzer gave an update on Cena’s status with the WWE during Monday’s Wrestling Observer Radio. Here is what he had to say:
“[Cena] is in, until he’s gone again,” said Meltzer. “He’s working the Garden, he’s working that whole week, so I presume he’s in the Royal Rumble. I haven’t heard his name attached to any new movies that are filming in the next couple months, so I think he’s back for a run.”
