John Cena stated in a promotional interview over Wrestlemania 32 weekend that he was medically cleared to return to the ring but hasn’t returned yet. As far as we know, it’s just a situation of WWE playing it safe and giving him time to recuperate. They want to make sure he is available for SummerSlam in August and he’s not likely for WWE Payback on May 1, 2016.
Speaking of Cena, he told Rolling Stone he’d rather WWE programming be geared towards him. Below is an excerpt:
"I'm a 38-year-old man," he says. "I'd much rather it be a program geared toward me, whether that's TV-14 or sometimes even more graphic than that, which is what I like. For one thing, profanity brought fire out of people with personalities that backed the language. It's very difficult to say, 'Oh, you're being poopy,' especially when they're meant to be fighting words. And now, if someone starts to bleed, the referee intervenes to stop the bleeding. But before, you'd just let it fly. Blood is one of the things that made fights cool. Like, you knew it had gotten serious. I understand why we don't do it anymore. Vince has been a coach to me, a father figure, a boss and a friend, and his goal and my goal are the same: to make the company be as big as it can be. But, yeah, the blood is one thing I miss.”
