John Cena on returning to the WWE: 'Those rumors are true'

John Cena appeared on The Tonight Show Wednesday, where he confirmed some pretty big news to host Jimmy Fallon regarding his WWE career.

On May 8, Cena shared a cryptic Instagram post of the WWE logo, with no caption, which is what initially sparked rumors that he could be on his way back to the WWE ring. When Fallon asked Cena about those rumors, Cena responded without hesitation, "Those rumors are true. I'll definitely be back to the WWE." Cena then added, "I don't know when."

About his rumor-sparking post on the gram, Cena stated, "Yeah, so I posted that back in May. I was feeling rather nostalgic about the WWE and I just wanted to post the logo, and some people took it as I was returning immediately, which that's not the case. But I haven't had my last match and I can't wait to have my next match."

However, while fans are hyped for Cena's return, it may not happen as soon as we'd like.

The 16-time WWE champion has been very busy with his acting career. In fact, Cena is currently promoting one of this summer's biggest blockbusters, F9, which marks his debut within the Fast and Furious franchise, and he's also got some other big projects in the pipeline, like Peacemaker, which is an HBO Max spinoff series starring Cena's character from the upcoming movie The Suicide Squad.

Cena is currently filming Peacemaker, which is just one of the reasons why he can't return just yet. "All these opportunities have led to more opportunities. So I 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 told Fallon.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
