Cena said The Rock deserved the right not to be pressured for a comeback.
“He deserved the right not to be pressured into that choice,” Cena said. “I can tell he’s a WWE fan. He is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. So, as a fan, I want to see one of the greatest performers of all time return to the WWE ring? Yes. But in no way am I going to call him and if I want to talk to him about anything, it won’t be to try to get him back into the WWE ring. He must come to this conclusion on his own.
“Because then his performance will be, The Rock, he will be the best he can be. So I hope he comes back, as a fan, and I hope that’s wonderful, and if he chooses not to do it, he has earned the right to choose not to.
Cena just finished his Summer of Cena run, losing to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns in the SummerSlam Main Event last Saturday night, but is still expected to appear on the Super SmackDown taping on September 10 at Madison Square Garden in New York. There is no timeline for his return to WWE intrigue. Rumor has it The Rock will appear on the Survivor Series pay-per-view on November 21 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Rock is expected to start a feud with Reigns for WrestleMania 38 in 2022.
