Incredible John Cena Record Could End This Year

John Cena

An impressive 19-year long streak involving John Cena could be about to come to an end.

John Cena made his main roster debut on the June 27th edition of SmackDown. On the show which was taped two days earlier, Cena answered an open challenge from Kurt Angle declaring that he possessed “Ruthless Aggression.”

The young star delivered an impressive showing, although his debut ended in defeat.

Cena won his first main roster championship at WrestleMania XX where he defeated the Big Show to win the United States Title. A year later at WrestleMania 21 he became World Champion for the first time by overcoming John Bradshaw Layfield.

Over the following 19-years there were 15 more World Championship wins as well as an incredible list of other accolades.

Although in recent years Cena has reduced his in-ring appearances significantly, he has continued to wrestle. However, with the end of 2022 now in sight, the star may be about to break his own incredible streak.

Up until now, (September 23rd 2022) John Cena has wrestled at least one match every year since he debuted back in the summer of 2002. Meaning that unless he competes in the final months of 2022, it will be the first year since he debuted that he hasn’t had a match.

Cena’s most recent match took place following an episode of Friday Night SmackDown on September 10th 2021. His last televised match took place at SummerSlam a month earlier.

Although he hasn’t wrestled Cena returned to WWE on the June 27th edition of Monday Night Raw to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his debut. During the appearance, the 16-time World Champion discussed his WWE memories and thanked fans for supporting him.
