John Cena has been a staple of the WWE since his debut with the company in 2002, but 2018 has been the first time he has really had an extended break.
Of course, the 16-time world champion is focusing on his burgeoning Hollywood career - something he once ironically called The Rock out for - and has only made sporadic appearances inside the squared circle.
He posted a video last month showing his training to make a return to the WWE and he revealed that while fans have always been annoyed with his 'five moves of doom', he has now added a sixth to his repertoire.
Apart from the fact that he had left it late in the day to expand his moveset, fans have been wondering when he will return to the company and what high profile matches are left for him.
Right now, it seems as though Cena is destined to be working with Elias in the near future, like he did on Saturday in Shanghai.
His next WWE booking takes him to Australia for the Super Showdown event where he will tag with Bobby Lashley against Elias and Kevin Owens - if KO decides he doesn't want to quit the company after all.
The WWE posted Cena winning his match against Elias in Shanghai by using his new move and it's safe to say, the internet is not impressed.
We don't know whether Cena was just trolling everyone all along or he genuinely believes that is a good finish, but Elias laid there for the 1-2-3 regardless.
Speaking earlier this year, 41-year-old Cena admitted he wasn't retiring from the WWE just yet, but his appearances would become more sporadic.
“The WWE will always be my home, but in this current state of affairs right now with all this extra cool stuff that's going on, it's fun to try.
“It's a great time to be able to take a chance and I'm so eternally grateful to the WWE and its audience for bringing me to this point. I realise I'd be nowhere without them and I never forget them.
“I promise as soon as I have any sort of downtime, like I had when I was at the Greatest Royal Rumble and the string of shows I did before WrestleMania, any free time I get will not be free, it will be spent at my home in the WWE."
