WWE legend John Cena has confirmed that he will be in Tampa for WrestleMania 36. Cena no longer wrestles on a full-time basis as he has turned his attention to Hollywood where he is building an impressive acting career.
I live in Tampa, the event is in Tampa, so I will be there
The Champ has appeared in various blockbuster hits, such as the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, and has been cast for Fast & Furious 9 as well as the Suicide Squad sequel.
However, The Leader of the Cenation hasn’t forgotten about professional wrestling and has repeatedly stated that he has not retired yet.
WWE are preparing for WrestleMania, which takes place on April 5 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa where he resides.

Cena told ComicBook: “I live in Tampa, the event is in Tampa, so I will be there.
“If I’m asked to do anything, that’s beyond my control. I don’t dictate terms, that’s not something I’ve ever done.
“I’ve never been one to be like, ‘I would love a match with this guy or this guy.’
