John Cena is appearing on WWE television for the first time this year at the end of the month.
On WWE Backstage, it was revealed that Cena will appear on the February 28 episode of SmackDown, which is taking place at the TD Garden in Boston.
Thank you to @WWE for allowing me the opportunity to come to #Smackdown @WWEonFOX to promote a project nearly 20 years in the making. #InvisibleMan ---- https://t.co/vN3FcK8RN2 pic.twitter.com/OWqhxUPyB6— John Cena (@JohnCena) February 12, 2020
John Cena will return to SmackDown on Friday, Feb. 28, as Team Blue continues down The Road to WrestleMania.
It was on SmackDown where The Cenation Leader made his dynamic debut nearly 18 years ago, when he channeled “Ruthless Aggression” to challenge WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle in his debut match. Since that fateful night, Cena went on to become WWE’s standard-bearer, earning 16 World Championships and inspiring countless WWE fans to “Never Give Up.”
An icon in the ring and the star of such blockbuster films as “Bumblebee,” “Blockers” and the upcoming “F9: The Fast Saga,” Cena will soon bring his signature “Hustle, Loyalty and Respect” back to SmackDown, as first reported by WWE Backstage on FS1. Whatever this unparalleled Superstar has planned, you won’t want to miss it.
Catch Cena’s return to SmackDown on Friday, Feb. 28, at 8/7 C on FOX.
This will be Cena’s first appearance on either Raw or SmackDown since appearing on the Raw reunion episode last summer. The last time Cena had a match was on Raw back in January 2019 when he lost a fatal four-way to Finn Balor.
Since then, Cena has largely focused on his multiple movie roles and television commitments.
