John Cena Teases His Retirement from WWE

Soon You Won’t See Him In WWE

For over two decades, people have associated WWE with John Cena, but he recently teased his retirement from the company.

John Cena has revealed he plans on retiring from WWE before he turns 50. He admitted that “it takes its toll more and more” every time he steps into the squared circle. The WWE superstar continued, “I made a promise to the consumer early on, to WWE fans, ‘cause I know how tough it is to be a fan. You gotta come out of pocket – and WWE has a ton of content – it takes a lot to be a passionate fan, and our fanbase is passionate and global. I never wanted to go out there just for the sake of going out there.”

Cena will celebrate his 47th birthday in April, which means a WWE retirement announcement will come in the next three years. This plan is the timeline that he made for himself. Though there are other wrestlers who have continued their careers well past 50, Ric Flair and Sting being the most popular, wrestling is difficult to do long-term.

We Can See Him! (In Other Projects)

John Cena is a world-renowned and decorated wrestler with 16 world title reigns throughout his career, tied with Ric Flair, another 16-time world champion. Cena has also made a name for himself in Hollywood. Most recently, he appeared in the Barbie movie as one of many Kens. This project won awards and the hearts of fans around the world. Other popular projects were roles like Peacemaker in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which also resulted in a spinoff series on HBO Max. He also returned as Jakob in the latest Fast Saga entry. It’s safe to say that Cena will be busy in the future. 

His next project will be in Matthew Vaughn’s big-budget action movie, Argylle, based on the book by Elly Conway. 

Despite Cena’s plans for retirement, he will not be leaving the public eye. Cena will join the long list of former professional wrestlers who made successful transitions into Hollywood, like Batista and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
