Money in the Bank: John Cena
WWE superstar John Cena WWE

John Cena, who is on a hiatus from wrestling and is filming of the second season of American Grit, had recently revealed that he was "terribly" missing the WWE. While the wrestler-turned-actor's return to the ring is much anticipated, it appears the WWE universe will have to wait a bit longer to witness the superstar in action again.

Cena has reportedly signed up for another movie that could delay his return to the WWE universe. According to Inquisitr, Cena will star in Kay Cannon's directorial debut titled The Pact, which also features Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz. The filming schedule of movie is yet to be confirmed.

However, this has reportedly upset WWE officials as the 39-year-old would miss the wrestling entertainment company's upcoming events.

The development follows an AllWrestlingnews report that Cena was unhappy with WWE's financial dealing with Goldberg. The former WCW and WWE champion made his return at Survivor Series to fight Brock Lesnar and defeated the Beast Incarnate in less than 90 seconds.

The report went on to claim that although Cena has nothing against Goldberg, he felt that the WWE had taken his dedication for granted by paying big money to the latter for a limited schedule.

Cena remains WWE's highest paid superstar with $9.5m (£7.61m) a year in earnings that excludes merchandise sales. But the report pointed out that Goldberg and Lesnar are probably getting paid more per appearance.
