John Cena suffered a devastating loss at Crown Jewel, and since then, there has been a lot of conjecture about his future in the WWE. Even though “The Champ” has definitely solidified his place among the greatest of all time, fans can’t help but wonder whether this was his final bout.
In the aftermath of a punishing loss to Solo Sikoa at the recent Crown Jewel event, John Cena left a cryptic message that fueled these speculations. On his Instagram, Cena shared an image of David Beckham’s farewell game for Paris Saint-Germain F.C., drawing a parallel to his own situation after being pounded into submission by Solo Sikoa’s relentless Samoan Spikes. The image portrayed Cena as dejected and defeated.
The reality of the situation is tinged with uncertainty. John Cena’s current WWE run might indeed be over, thanks to the ever-evolving dynamics of the SAG-AFTRA strike. His sudden availability for a summer run, free from Hollywood commitments, resulted in his return to WWE, where he locked horns with The Bloodline.
John Cena will likely not make another WWE appearance in 2023
However, the signs of this being his final match were far from evident, and rumors of his participation in WrestleMania 40 were already circulating. Independent of his thriving acting career, Cena’s return for a high-profile feud with Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39 showcased his ability to captivate audiences both in and out of the ring.
One thing is certain while the professional wrestling community waits for answers on John Cena’s future: his legacy in the WWE is ingrained in history, and he will always be a significant player in the sport.
Regardless of whether this loss really signals the end of “The Champ’s” career in the ring or is just a short-term break, it highlights how unpredictable the wrestling industry can be and leaves fans waiting to see what Cena will do next.
