See you later. There are very few stars in wrestling history on the same level as John Cena. While he might not have always been the most popular star in the world, Cena certainly had his audience and WWE knew how to market him to those people. Cena is now seen as a living legend and is going to get some extra attention every time he is around. That just might not be taking place anytime soon.
According to PWInsider.com, Cena is done with WWE for the time being, save for an already announced appearance at the September 10 SmackDown in Madison Square Garden in New York City. It is not clear when Cena will be back, as he will be filming Argylle for at least the next several months. Cena finished up with WWE at Summerslam, losing to Roman Reigns in a Universal Title match. Following the match, Cena posted a message to Twitter, thanking the fans and everyone involved for his latest run with WWE.
Words cannot describe how appreciative I am that the @WWEUniverse allowed me the opportunity to return and perform. Thank you staff, superstars, and most of all FANS for giving me an unforgettable summer at “home” with my “family”. The journey takes me away now but I’ll C U soon.

Cena’s return was quite good. Check out what he did while he was back:
Opinion: This had to be expected as Cena is hardly a full time wrestler any longer. He came back and wrestled a major match at Summerslam before leaving again. There is nothing wrong with that as he is not going to be able to fit in much more, but the appearances that he had were quite good. What matters now is finding something to fill in the gap he has left, which is easier said than done.
