John Cena Explains His WrestleMania 36 Status, Booker T Threatens To Reject Royal Rumble Spot

John Cena didn’t compete in a single WWE pay-per-view in 2019; he last competed on the January 14th episode of RAW before reprising his Doctor Of Thuganomics gimmick in a non-wrestling capacity at WrestleMania 35.

During a recent interview with The Belfast Telegraph, the 16-time World Champion discussed his status for WrestleMania 36.

“I can’t perform as much as the current ones because I’m a little bit older, and I have these cool opportunities to do other stuff, but in doing other stuff, I’m not saying that world is shut off. I’m trying to bring this world with me, so we can all be involved in a movie conversation or a WrestleMania conversation.”

The WWE Universe expects Cena to perform at the biggest PPV of 2020, but it remains to be seen whether The Champ can make himself available for the grand show amidst his Hollywood commitments.

Meanwhile, Booker T is looking forward to making an in-ring return at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view but his patience seems to be running thin.

It was previously rumored that Booker T and his brother Stevie Ray could be teaming up to take on The Revival on the January 27th show. However, the 2-time Hall Of Famer is now hoping to go solo as he aims to participate in the 30-Man Rumble match.

For Booker T to perform at the Minute Maid Park, WWE must contact him in the next 48 hours or else fans will lose the opportunity to see the 5-time WCW Champion back in action.

“If I don’t get a phone call in forty-eight hours… as far as if I’ve got a number in the Rumble. Now, I don’t care if the number is number one, okay? I don’t care if the number is number thirty, I don’t care if it’s fifteen. I don’t care what it is, but if I don’t have the number within forty-eight hours, I will not be available to participate in this year’s Royal Rumble.”
