Michael Vick’s performance at Virginia Tech Football inspired the 16-time world champion. So much so that John Cena retired Vick’s number 7 jersey during his match. This gesture from Cena could definitely spark some magic in the eyes of WWE and NFL fans.

Will The Champ return to WWE to become 17-time World Champion?

The DC comic-based character Peacemaker makes a ton of money in the film industry. John Cena deserves credit for making the Peacemaker series a hit, among many. However, it has been a long time since Cena returned to WWE. The last time Cena returned to the squared circle was to humiliate WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Cena was on a mission to defeat Roman Reigns and add a 17-time world champion tag to his wrestling resume. But, The Tribal Chief sent The Champ back to Hollywood and retained his Universal title at SummerSlam 2021.
