It was announced during Tuesday night’s episode of WWE Backstage that John Cena will be appearing on Friday Night SmackDown later this month.
Cena, 42, is set to appear on the February 28th edition of the show from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. This occurs the day after the Super ShowDown event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
It will be Cena’s first appearance on WWE television since last July when he attended the Raw Reunion show in Tampa, Florida.
Cena only wrestled two matches in 2019 doing a pair of matches in January with his last one in a fatal-four way with Finn Balor, Drew McIntyre, and Baron Corbin on January 14, 2019.
He did appear unadvertised at WrestleMania 35 to confront Elias in the ring with Cena donning his ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’ character and doing a rap.
