John Cena says he is only feeling 70 percent

John Cena - arguably the greatest WWE superstar in the company's history - is scheduled to make his return to our TV screens on Memorial Day on May 30.

The WWE has been building up for his return with several promos on Twitter as the date draws closer for the WWE Universe to see the 15-time World Champion back in the ring, completing his epic comeback from injury.

Cena had surgery back in January earlier this year on his shoulder, and it was expected he would be sidelined for up to nine months. However, after a surprise appearance alongside The Rock at WrestleMania 32, speculation started to grow that he could be making a return earlier.

The former United States Champion announced on his Twitter not long after that he would be making his return to the ring only five months after surgery, rather than the predicted nine. Cena had lived up to his nickname of Super Cena once more thanks to his quick recovery process.

However, just because he is returning to the squared circle, doesn't mean he is at 100 percent. TMZ Sports spoke to Cena, who was with his girlfriend and fellow WWE superstar Nikki Bella, to ask about his quick recovery and how healthy he was feeling right now, according to Wrestling Inc.

This was when Cena revealed he wasn't feeling 100 percent, as he said: "It's just a matter of doing the work. No I'm not (at 100 percent). I'm probably 30% off of what I was operating at November 2015, but being at 70% is still pretty damn good."

Although some fans will be concerned that the leader of the Cenation is coming back to the ring not at 100 percent, it shouldn't be something the WWE Universe should be overly worried about as he has wrestled on several occasions while not feeling at his best. In reality, many superstars are never 100 percent when they step inside the ring. That's just the nature of the business.

Cena has the ability to carry the WWE even with some bad injuries. Examples of this include when he broke his nose during a feud with Seth Rollins during last year's summer, and when he tore his tricep in the summer of 2013, coming back after only three months, rather than the scheduled four to six.

As for possible feuds for the 15-time World Champion upon his return, he could go on the hunt for title number 16 by having a rivalry against Roman Reigns, or he could attempt to reclaim the United States Championship once more - whose title holder is expected to be Rusev - to add credibility to the title once more.
