Nobody likes to see a wrestling legend retire, whether it’s The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Edge, Christian, Sting, Ric Flair, Tommy Dreamer, Terry Funk or whoever else you may have as a favourite. But sometimes, good careers come to an end and this superstar could be hinting that it’s near to his end at WWE.
According to BleacherReport, our 16 time world champion who debuted in WWE against Kurt Angle on SmackDown in 2002 says that his days are “numbered”. As we all know that the 40 year old WWE Superstar and most definitely a future Hall of Fame inductee has stepped back a fair bit from WWE television to become hosts of other programs across national television. When “Super Cena” had an interview with Khal of Complex, he spoke about his recent return to WWE television as a free agent, John said: “The reason that I wanted to be a free agent and the reason they kind of granted my request is because I don’t know if I’ll be available for Smackdown specific only or Raw specific only, and I also know that my days are numbered. I just turned 40 in April and we have so many young and talented performers, I don’t know how many years I have left. So in the time I have left, I’m gonna do what I can to dedicate to this company I just want to be able to do it the most time that I possibly can.”
I don’t know about anyone else but I’m sure it’ll be sad to see John Cena retire, no matter what anyone can say about the man. He’s had a career of a lifetime and he’s been the top babyface of the company for a long time now, I think many can agree and disagree when I say that John Cena undoubtedly needs to win his 17th title at the grandest stage of them all and definitely does deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. Regardless of his decision, as a wrestling fan, I wish John Cena the best in his future.
