After six months out of action through injury, excitement surrounding the impending return of Seth Rollins to the squared circle is at fever pitch today.
Following on from Vince McMahon's announcement last week that Rollins was amongst a host of big name Superstars who would be making their comeback within the next month, reports today have revealed the former Shield member is pencilled in for the June 6 Raw broadcast.
And one man who has been quick to praise Rollins for his recovery is none other than former sparring partner, John Cena. The Cenation Leader took to Twitter today to show his respect to Rollins, and urge fans to do the same.

Although the WWE are yet to officially announce Rollins' early June return, Cena's tweet this afternoon does suggest the organisation is gearing up for his return in the very near future.

It is clear to see from Cena's message that The Architect is a well-respected member of the WWE locker room and, in rehabbing the ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus tear suffered in November 2015, he has only enhanced his reputation as a determined individual.
Cena himself is on the comeback trail from his own injury, having undergone shoulder surgery at the turn of the year.
He too is due back in the squared circle next month, but, in highlighting Rollins' achievements above his own impressively quick recovery, it puts into perspective the difficult journey his SummerSlam 2015 opponent has been on.
As you might expect, Cena's tweet has been met with excitement amongst the WWE Universe, and fans responding to his statement on Monday have been quick to show their support for both wrestlers:
Getting the duo back in the ring in time for the traditionally busy summer pay-per-view period is a huge boost for the WWE.
Whether Cena and Rollins will re-ignite their 2015 feud remains to be seen, but there is a growing feeling that the latter could actually be set for a babyface role when he does return.
His rival's respectful tweet only serves to prove that the ex-Shield member will struggle to continue with the heel role he has had so much success with in recent times.
The former World Heavyweight champion was already a big fan favourite before his injury nightmare began.
Now, as he looks set to return to the ring after a seven-month absence, his time away from the WWE has only further endeared him to fans, and his fellow wrestlers.
