WWE legend John Cena has officially announced his return to the ring more than a year after his retirement.
Cena made the announcement on Sunday night, July 18, when he came out at the end of the Money in the Bank event.
At the time, Roman Reigns was in celebration after his win over Edge to retain his Universal Championship title.
However, Reigns' moment of glory was disrupted with Cena's theme song, with the now Hollywood star storming the ring much to the chagrin of Reigns.
After the show, Cena went on to reveal he is back, with People reporting his return suggested he plans to be part of the upcoming SummerSlam.

"I missed you guys. I really, really missed you guys," he added.
It now remains to be seen if Cena will be going up against Reigns, his former WWE rival.
