John Cena is no stranger to attention. Over the course of his career, the wrestler-turned-actor has won multiple championships in the WWE, set and broken records for the number of wishes his granted through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and even become a heavyweight in the world of film and television. And even though some of his projects were either delayed or put on the back-burner in 2020, the charismatic personality looks to have a remarkable, and possibly career-defining year in 2021 when he shows up in the highly anticipated The Suicide Squad and F9, and that’s just the beginning.
So, as we look forward to 2021 and what it has in store for John Cena, let’s take a look at all of the projects he’s attached to that are set to come out in the next year or so. And will we see his return to the squared circle after vanishing from the middle of the ring at the conclusion of his “Firefly Funhouse Match” at WrestleMania 36? We can only hope…

Fans of the Fast and Furious franchise were all fired up and ready to go when it was announced that John Cena would be appearing as Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) brother Jakob in F9 in early 2020. The ninth installment in the action-packed series was supposed to drop on May 22, 2020, but just a few weeks after the first trailer debuted, the release date was pushed back nearly a year until April 2, 2021, meaning we’d have a considerable amount of time to find out if John Cena was lying when he said he wasn’t playing the villain in the latest entry in the successful franchise.
In the wake of F9’s delay, longtime members of the cast sent out reassuring messages about the new release date, as did John Cena, who was set to make his debut in the franchise with its ninth main entry. And who knows, maybe Tyrese Gibson was right when he said that pushing the movie’s release back a year was a good thing, even if it means we have to wait even longer to see that surprise cameo Vin Diesel was teasing shortly after the announcement was made. I know it’s wishful thinking, but what if it’s Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs coming back to get revenge on John Cena’s Jakob Toret
