We heard shortly before Money in the Bank (MITB) started how John Cena was in the area. It was not clear if he would appear or was there for other work. Well, he got introduced to the live crowd by Trish Stratus to a nice pop. Then, he took the ring and shocked everyone. Cena announced his pro wrestling career is almost over.

He went further, revealing he would be at the first RAW on Netflix, work the Royal Rumble in January, Elimination Chamber and then retire at WrestleMania 41 from Las Vegas. Now, Cena is tied with Ric Flair at 16 World Championship reigns each. Considering what we heard, Cena can win the Men’ Royal Rumble Match and then earn a tittle shot at WrestleMania. Then, he either retires champion and breaks Flair’s record or he loses. In the past, most wrestlers put other talent over on their way out. That is not always the case, but Cena has been helping elevate young wrestlers for a long time.

Cena last wrestled at Crown Jewel 2023, losing to Solo Sikoa. The defeat means Cena has not won a singles match since 2018. He has won a few matches, but those are tag bouts. No word if Solo will face Cena before he leaves. When it pertains to a final opponent, maybe Cody Rhodes or Randy Orton.

Whatever happens, what an amazing career by John Cena. He did everything WWE asked and always with a positive attitude. When looking back at the history of WWE, Cena will have his own chapter. Before his career ends, let us enjoy what is left. So, after we see John Cena retire at WrestleMania 41, what is next?
