While the WWE Universe continues to wait for the return of John Cena to SmackDown Live, they could be forced to sit in anticipation for a longer period than originally speculated.

He’s been away filming the second season of American Grit, and although the WWE were probably drafting up new plans for his return, he’s only gone and bagged himself another major Hollywood role as he continues to pursue projects outside of the company.


Cena will star in Kay Cannon’s directorial debut, The Pact and stars alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz.

While the role continues Cena’s rise in Hollywood’s comedy genre, not everyone seems to be pleased with the events that are unfolding.

The Inquisitr are reporting that WWE officials are supposedly upset at the fact that Cena will be forced to miss even more time away from the company with his latest project.

Although a filming schedule hasn’t been confirmed yet, it’s quite obvious that he’ll miss another big chunk of time heading into the important WrestleMania season.


This isn’t helped by the fact that there are already rumoured frustrations between officials and Cena, with outlets claiming he’s unhappy with details surrounding Goldberg’s return.

The rumoured conflict isn’t said to be severe, as Vince McMahon has still told the creative team to write up plans for Cena, with multiple ideas being thrown around.

One of those is that Cena will claim his 16th World Championship in Orlando, while a match with The Undertaker has also been in the works.


So you can understand the frustration from officials, as they’re making potentially huge plans for Cena which could all go to waste if he begins filming and is forced to miss the event for a second year running – despite making a cameo appearance alongside The Rock earlier this year.

However, it could also result in mainstream media attention for the WWE, similar to what Dave Batista brought when he starred in Guardians of the Galaxy couple of years ago.

As Cena’s stock continues to rise with good performances on the big-screen, he’s not only in danger of becoming the part-timer he once accused The Rock of being, but fans could be forced to accept the fact that Cena’s time as a WWE star is slowly coming to an end.
