John Cena Hints WWE Career Is Coming To An End

John Cena & Austin Theory

After an inconsistent start to his WWE career, John Cena rose to become one of the biggest stars that the company has ever seen.

During his prime, he was loved and hated by fans in almost equal measure, sitting at the top of the WWE mountain, enjoying a near-unparalleled level of success. However, as the saying goes, all good things come to an end.

By 2023 Cena has assumed the role of a beloved veteran, his appearances with the company becoming more infrequent with every passing year, but cheered to the rafters every time he walks through the curtain.

The 16-time World Champion’s most recent outing came on the March 6th episode of Raw where he ended up in a war of words with Austin Theory. A man who many have tipped to become the ‘next John Cena.’

During their exchange, Cena first rejected the chance to wrestle the young star, before eventually accepting a match at WrestleMania 39 at the urging of the crowd. Once the match was set, Cena called out Cody Rhodes and the pair embraced at the top of the ramp to large cheers.

As Cena walked out in Boston he appeared visibly moved by the reaction from the crowd. Posting on social media after the show, the WWE legend has now given an insight into why. Cena wrote that for the first time, he thought he may be entering the arena for the last time, hinting that he knows his career will soon be over.

“Last night was the first time I entered the arena and had the thought that it might be the last time. I’ll never be able to put into words how much I love the #WWEUniverse”

Vince McMahon Backstage On Raw To Meet John Cena

If the March 6th episode of WWE Raw wasn’t already big enough, it was also revealed ahead of time that Vince McMahon was backstage. It is believed that the Executive Chairman was there primarily to see Cena although he spent the entire show in the Gorilla position. It has been reported that while Triple H remained in charge of creative, McMahon is “doing more than WWE are letting on.”
