John Cena Ducks Question On Vince McMahon

John Cena Vince McMahon

John Cena is determined to look forward.

At Money In The Bank, John Cena made a surprise appearance to announce his retirement from WWE.

After being introduced by Trish Stratus, Cena paid tribute to the Canadian fans before laying out his retirement plan. Cena discussed Raw moving to Netflix, and said he would be there, but added that Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 41 would be his last. He also declared his intention to compete in the Royal Rumble.

Speaking at the post-show press conference, Cena offered more details on his retirement tour, explaining that he won’t be retiring at WrestleMania. At present he’s planning on going from January to December, making around 40 dates in that period.

The 16-time World Champion confirmed he’ll remain in the “WWE family” following his retirement, although the jorts will become a thing of the past.

John Cena Sidesteps “Uncomfortable” Vince McMahon Question

While Cena was happy to discuss his plans for the future, he was much less enthusiastic when asked about disgraced former WWE boss Vince McMahon. When asked by John Pollock of POST Wrestling what McMahon meant to his career, Cena referred fans to his previous conversations on the subject.

“Surely an uncomfortable question, and man, I really would much rather talk about what’s ahead of us, and that’s really important. I’ve been pretty honest with my opinion to answer that question, and if you didn’t see it, I know you can dig it up somewhere.

I think we’re on the precipice of something pretty special, and as the business evolves and continues to evolve, damn, it’s in pretty good hands with the TKO folks. So I am happy to be where I’m at. Again, I think if you want that information, you dig hard enough, you can find it. Thank you, though. Appreciate the courage,”

Back in February, John Cena said he’ll continue to love Vince McMahon, despite the billionaire being accused of a series of sickening sex crimes.
