John Cena Names 4 Greatest Of All Time WWE Superstars

John Cena WWE Raw

John Cena has named his choices for the four “GOATs” in WWE history and is not choosing himself.

For the last several years whenever John Cena appears on a WWE television show, a WWE announcer like Michael Cole will shout about how Cena is the “greatest of all time.” It is not something that Cena says about himself, but it’s something that WWE ring announcers also say to introduce him to the audience.

The reason that WWE claims Cena is the “GOAT” of WWE is that he’s won more World Titles than anybody in history, was a main eventer for well over a decade and headlined many major shows including WrestleManias during his career.

Those 16 WWE World Titles are the most of all time, which is a record Cena shares with Ric Flair. The difference between them is that only two of Flair’s were with WWE while all of Cena’s were obviously with WWE.

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Cena was asked about who he thinks the “Greatest Of All Time” is in WWE history. Rather than give one name, Cena mentioned four men so perhaps it’s his own personal kind of Mount Rushmore of WWE legends.

“I mean, this is just my perspective, and again, we’re talking objectivity. So, of course, it’s only opinion. Hulk Hogan would have to be in there. Steve Austin, Dwayne Johnson, and Roman Reigns. Roman has done a fantastic job of taking the business to heights it’s never been to before.”

Roman Reigns is the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion who has faced Cena in the past. Assuming Reigns headlines WrestleMania 40, it will be his eighth WrestleMania main event, which would tie Reigns with Hogan. Cena has five WrestleMania main events in his career. The Rock actually has five also, but will likely get his sixth this year at WrestleMania 40 on NIght 1.

The full interview with Cena and Van Vliet will be released on Tuesday.

Will John Cena Be A Part Of WrestleMania 40?

As the Road to WrestleMania 40 reaches the point where the big show is just about one month away, there are questions about whether John Cena will be there. While there is nothing official at this point, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Cena could appear at WrestleMania 40, but Cena due to filming the second season of “Peacemaker,” Cena may not be allowed to take risks. That could limit what Cena does at the show so perhaps he could only appear at WrestleMania 40 in a cameo role rather than having a match.

John Cena also has an incredible streak that he likely wants to continue because he’s had at least one WWE match every year since his debut in 2002, so it’s at 21 years at this point and Cena will likely want to extend the streak to 22 years at some point this year.
