John Cena has given some early indication that his retirement from in-ring wrestling is approaching sooner rather than later.
Cena’s fulltime career as a WWE superstar lasted fifteen years from 2002 to 2017. Beginning in 2017 Cena shifted towards being a free agent and began wrestling far less often. And since 2019, he has been more focused on his blossoming acting career with a long list of films that he’s either working on now or scheduled to work on in the coming years.
With such a busy acting schedule and with most of his films being more physical action flicks, there’s little time left for him to keep wrestling.
Add onto this the fact that he’s getting older and has had plenty of injuries over the years, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Cena has already addressed the idea of retiring from pro-wrestling altogether.
John Cena hopes to be able to wrestle for four more years
In an interview that took part of a recent WWE tour of India, the 46-year-old John Cena said that he hopes to wrestle until age 50 but wasn’t sure if he could go beyond that point.
“I’m leaning towards 50, and I don’t know how much longer I will be physically able to do it”
John Cena has made a few appearances for WWE lately but when it comes to in-ring competition he has largely relegated himself to dark matches. His most recent televised match was at WrestleMania 39 when he failed to beat Austin Theory for the United States Championship.
