John Cena returned to WWE from Hollywood in September and has been consistent appearing on the SmackDown brand. He has been in a feud with The Bloodline and defeated Solo Sikoa & Jimmy Uso by teaming up with LA Knight at Fastlane. Following their win, Cena & Knight appeared on the post-show media scrum, where Cena talked about returning to Hollywood post-strike. 

It is important to note that the Screen Actors Guild- American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) strike since July 2023, is one of the factors why Cena returned to WWE.

At the Fastlane Press Conference, Cena was asked if Hollywood would get him back after the SAG-AFTRA strike ends. To which Cena replied that they will, as he is in the middle of a project and would get back to schedule as soon as the strike ends.

Cena says,

“They do, they do. I’ve made it perfectly clear that you can’t do both, because of the liability insurance, and if I were to try to juggle both, then that would be selfish, because I would put a lot of people out of work if something happened to me.

So, yes, I stopped the project I was in, I can’t even talk about what the project was because of the strike, and we’re in the middle of it. So, as soon as I can get back to work, I get back to work. I don’t control any of that, just crossing my fingers to hope that they can figure that out. In the meantime, I came back to help with my family.”
