How Chris Jericho Really Feels About John Cena’s WWE Retirement

Chris Jericho John Cena

John Cena has started the clock on his WWE career as the sixteen-time champion of the world announced his retirement.

John Cena made a surprise appearance at Money In The Bank to announce that he was retiring from WWE but don’t worry, there’s still going to be plenty of time to enjoy Cena in the company before he hangs up his boots.

Although John Cena noted that the 2025 Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania would be his last outings at those events, it’s still not entirely clear when Cena will wrestle the final match of his career.

Chris Jericho Touts Really Great Time For John Cena Fans

Appearing on McGuire on Wrestling, Chris Jericho was asked about Cena’s impending retirement and the AEW star thinks it’s going to be a great send-off for the star:

My career is already longer than John Cena’s (Jericho responded when the interviewer said he’s going to have a career that goes longer than Cena’s). No, I mean it’s great. John’s always had a great love for wrestling and he’s got a great connection with the fans so I think it’s a cool way to go about it.

People know that this is it and John’s not the type of guy to say anything lightly so I’m sure he’s been focused on this and working with the company to make sure it’s right and I’m sure it’s gonna be a really great year-and-a-half for Cena fans and for John Cena himself.

Chris Jericho and John Cena last shared the ring in 2016 but their rivalry can be charted back to the beginning of Cena’s WWE career. Jericho was Cena’s second televised opponent in WWE on SmackDown in 2002 and the two men clashed in Cena’s first match on WWE pay-per-view at Vengeance in the same year with Cena picking up the victory on that occasion.
