In an emotional announcement that has taken the wrestling world by storm, WWE legend John Cena revealed his plans to retire from in-ring competition in 2025. This significant news was shared through a video posted on WWE’s social media accounts.

Cena, who has been a cornerstone of WWE for over two decades, surprised fans by announcing an appearance at WWE Money in the Bank in Toronto, Canada. “Tonight, I am officially announcing my retirement from WWE,” Cena declared in the video clip.

In his speech, Cena also disclosed his plans to remain involved with WWE as Monday Night Raw makes its unprecedented move to Netflix in January 2025, as reported by Deadline. “This farewell does not end tonight,” Cena emphasized. “It is filled with opportunity. Everybody, Raw makes history next year when it moves to Netflix. I’ve never been a part of Raw on Netflix; that is history. That is a first, and I will be there.”

“And along with that historic first, we are going to create so many unforgettable lasts. The 2025 Royal Rumble will be my last. The 2025 Elimination Chamber will be my last. And I’m here tonight to announce that in Las Vegas, WrestleMania 2025 will be the last WrestleMania I compete in.”

John Cena signed with WWE in 2001 and quickly rose to become one of its most iconic figures. In 2018, he transitioned to a part-time role to focus on his growing acting career.
