At the end of January, John Cena had shoulder surgery and it was expected that he would be out of action for six to nine months. Since then, he's been working out more than any human being, and he's been teasing a comeback much sooner. Now, he continues to tease a return at WrestleMania 32 tomorrow, and rumors are that he will actually get involved in a huge bout to set up a match for WrestleMania 33 next year.
Cena has been working out very hard in hopes of getting back into the ring sooner rather than later. It was revealed in the beginning of March that he would not be wrestling at WrestleMania 32, but he has continued to tease an appearance at the big event.
As of Saturday, he continued his teasing of the fans.
Very excited about @WWE #HallOfFame tonight. And a HUGE day tomorrow for @WWEUniverse at #WrestleMania on @WWENetwork (never say never)Yes, he will be able to be at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday night, but his hints for WrestleMania 32 are interesting. Not only does he call tomorrow a "HUGE" day, but he makes sure to add on "never say never" at the end of his tweet.

Recent reports have stated that Cena's rehab is going well, but his return to the ring and actually wrestling again has been pushed back. It's now believed that John Cena is actually going to be out for a few more months and not returning until the mid-summer.
Complex Magazine recently spoke with the face of WWE and asked him a lot of questions about his injury, his career, his workout routine, and more. Cena is merely waiting for the all-clear from WWE so that he can return, but he's ready.
"If you ask me today, I should've been back two weeks ago. I've logged almost 400 hours of physical therapy. I got 111 visits in 12 weeks time. I go every single second I can. People say I have a Wolverine-like style of recovery. I was given a nine month quota to come back and after three months I can tell you that I am ready to do anything asked of me possible. It's a matter of when they call me."This is going to be the first WrestleMania that John Cena has missed since 2003, but he understands he merely can't get out there and wrestle just yet. When asked which match he is looking most forward to on the card, it isn't the WWE Title match or any match where a belt is up for grabs.
"Shane-Undertaker because of what's at stake—the stakes are what determines how important a match is. Yes, we all want to be champion, but Shane returning after a seven year absence to only have one match and if he loses, he's gone. If he wins, things change drastically. If he beats the Undertaker I can confidently say that's probably the last time we are going to see the Undertaker because if the Undertaker is as good as he says he is, for him to lose to someone coming off a seven year sabbatical, maybe you've lost a step kid. Maybe its time to move aside."Those are some very strong words that John Cena is using when speaking of a wrestling legend like The Undertaker. He's even making it known that if he loses to Shane McMahon, then the Deadman should hang it up and call it a career.
John Cena truly believes this could be the retirement match for The Undertaker.
Still, Cena appears to be selling his feud with The Undertaker that never happened. Maybe it's a sign of things to come.
WWF Old School believes that Cena could do something "HUGE" tomorrow and interfere in the Hell in a Cell battle and cost The Undertaker the match. Not only would this go along with his strong words, but it could set up the match WWE wanted this year and have it happen at WrestleMania 33 next year in Orlando.
WrestleMania 32 is going to be a huge event in its own right and with the card that is currently scheduled to take place. John Cena could show up and make an appearance, but if he were to get involved in a match, such as the Hell in a Cell, then it could lead to something much bigger or "HUGE" in his own words.
