• “There is no logistical way I can be there at WrestleMania 37” – Top WWE Star
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena was asked about his WrestleMania 37 status.
Here’s what Cena said:
“Currently, I’m in Vancouver shooting Peacemaker, the series for HBO Max. 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 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.
