• “That would be super, super, super selfish of me” – John Cena On Why He Won’t Appear At WrestleMania 37
16 Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena recently noted that there’s no logistical way that he can appear at WrestleMania 37 as he’s shooting in Canada.
WWE commentator Corey Graves then went on to say that Cena is swerving the fans and that Cena will somehow show up for the Show of Shows.
During a recent interview with Forbes, Cena once again noted that the situation is out of his hands and that he won’t be able to appear at WrestleMania 37 as it will halt the production of his current show and cost a lot of money.
Here’s what Cena said:
“Unfortunately, it’s out of my hands. Every other year except for this year has been completely within my realm.
If this were normal times, I would 100% be there. I’d find a way to contribute somehow. I’ve sat in the crowd as a fan. I’ll do whatever the event asks me to because it means that much to me, and WWE means that much to me, but I’m in Vancouver shooting Peacemaker for HBO Max.
It’s a spinoff series based on my character from Suicide Squad, Peacemaker. It’s an unbelievable opportunity, James Gunn has written the whole thing, he’s directing a bunch of the episodes. This is something that I’m inspired to do.
Because of the quarantine law, if I were to fly to the states for Sunday on WrestleMania — which is totally possible — the complications arrive when I come back to Canada. Because then I would have to quarantine for 14 days and that puts production back more than two weeks, which costs a boatload of money, and that would be super, super, super selfish of me.
Should things beyond my control normalize a bit and travel restrictions lift up, then sure, I’m in. But right now, it is logistically impossible. I can’t do that to Warner, I can’t do that to DC, I can’t do that to James, I can’t do that to the Suicide Squad. It’s just not fair.”
Cena was last seen on WWE programming on Night 2 of WrestleMania 36 last year, where he lost to “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House match.
