WWE legend John Cena Announces Retirement From Wrestling

by editor

Wrestling Champion, John Cena has announced that he will retire from professional wrestling in 2025 after two decades in the ring.

The wrestler-turned-actor delivered a heartfelt speech to a stadium of World Wrestling Entertainment fans in Toronto, Canada who booed in disappointment as Cena disclosed that the 2025 season would be his last.

Cena promised a farewell tour with dozens of dates and an epic final fight, assuring fans that he would remain involved with the wrestling franchise that launched his career.

“Thank you so much for letting me play in the house that you built for so many years,” Cena told the crowd.

Appearing at WWE Money in the Bank in Toronto, the 16-time world champion announced that he will retire from the sport in 2025.

Cena disclosed that the 2025 Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania 41 in Las Vegas would be his last.

The WWE legend said, “I’ve been in the WWE for over two decades, and in that time, I’ve seen incredible waves of prosperity like we got right now.

“WWE is the hottest ticket in town, no doubt, but I have also seen true hardship, that’s when no one knows your name, nobody wants to be your friend and only the most dedicated and hardcore fans stand by your side.”

The “You can’t see me” crooner added that he wants to be involved when Raw moves to Netflix in January.

In a news conference after the event, Cena told reporters that he feels physically “at my end,” but that doesn’t mean he needs to distance himself from the sport he loves.

The 16-time WWE champion made his debut in 2002.

However, since 2018, he has adopted a more part-time role in the company to focus on his movie career.

Cena played starring roles in the films “Blockers” and “The Suicide Squad.”
He has made multiple appearances in the “Fast & Furious” franchise and appeared most recently in the comedy thriller “Argylle” and the box office hit “Barbie.”
