It’s about that time again. Last year in late October, John Cena took a hiatus from WWE to film a reality show and didn’t show up again after Christmas. Well it’s time to film season 2 of Cena’s “American Grit” and that means Cena is leaving again, though this time we have an idea of when he’ll be back.

According to a new report at, Cena will be working the No Mercy pay per view on October 9, then working Survivor Series on November 20. After that, his next advertised appearance isn’t until the annual post-Christmas Madison Square Garden house show on December 26. Of course there could be more appearances added but at the moment, it appears that starting October 9, Cena will only be having three major matches for the rest of the year.

Cena has made it clear that his career is winding down and it’s really no surprise given his age (39) and history of severe injuries. With Hollywood and mainstream calling, it’s hard to imagine that Cena will be around much longer. There’s always the carrot of World Titles #16 and #17 but those don’t seem likely this year. It’s hard to imagine that we’ll be seeing Cena in just a few more years and these long hiatuses are eating up a lot of the time he has left. Good for him to get this kind of success while he can though as he’s certainly earned it.
