SAG-AFTRA Strike Ends, What This Means For WWE Status Of John Cena & The Rock

End of Sag-AFTRA strike will have repercussions for John Cena & The Rock’s WWE status

The historic SAG-AFTRA Hollywood strike has ended, with a tentative deal seeing the 118-day long strike come to an end on November 9.

The agreement is set to go to the SAG-AFTRA national board for approval on November 10, with the following statement released by SAG-AFTRA:

"In a unanimous vote this afternoon, The SAG-AFTRA TV/Theatrical Committee approved a tentative agreement with the AMPTP bringing an end to the 118 day strike," the statement read. "The strike officially ends at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, November 9. The tentative deal will go to the SAG-AFTRA National Board on Friday, November 10, 2023, for review and consideration. Further details will be released following that meeting."

For WWE fans, this news will likely spell the end of John Cena’s recent WWE run, as well as that of the Rock who made a surprise appearance on the September 15 edition of WWE SmackDown.

Cena recently wrestled Solo Sikoa at Crown Jewel on November 4, and also worked Fastlane in October. Cena’s return was only possible due to the strike, with the multi-time WWE Champion indicating that he would return to work on ‘undisclosed projects’ when the strike reached its conclusion. A post by Cena on Instagram showed the Looney Tunes Merrie Melodies 'The End' card, seemingly indicating that his current WWE run has indeed ended.
