16-time World Champion John Cena made his WWE return on December 26 and has a few more dates left on his current return schedule before leaving for Hollywood.

Cena also made his WWE TV return on SmackDown Live on New Year’s Day. This week The Champ returned to Monday Night RAW and officially announced himself for the 30-Man Elimination Match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 27.

During a recent interview with NBC’s KULR 8, Cena revealed that he is not taking an absolute departure from WWE, not yet.

“I’m literally in the search for balance, I am. I’ve told everyone in the WWE that I will not abandon ship.”

“This is my home, this is my family, and I’m realizing how tough it is to balance everything but I’m here, and the best I can do is manage my time the best I can, and really just never leave my family out to dry.”

“I have some wonderful opportunities coming up that I’m going to take advantage of, and a lot of that involves me being away from the WWE.”

The WWE Universe is relieved now that Cena’s status for Royal Rumble is officially confirmed.

While the Leader of Cenation isn’t the favorite to punch his main event ticket to WrestleMania 35 unlike Seth Rollins, WWE still needs Cena in the men’s Rumble match for the box-office attraction he is.

After all, Cena is the only man who WWE considers as the biggest draw given Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman are already booked for the Universal Championship Match and Drew McIntyre still doesn’t have quite the star power despite being groomed to become the next face of the company.

Things would have been different had Roman Reigns not been diagnosed with returning Leukemia. The Big Dog’s sudden medical hiatus forced WWE to change directions, else Strowman might have been part of the 30-Man Rumble match.
