It doesn’t get much bigger than those two. We are at the start of a new decade and that means a lot of people are going to look back at the previous ten years and reminisce just a little bit. A lot of wrestlers have come and gone over that time and some of them are a lot bigger than others. Some of those names have moved on somewhere else though, and one name is a little bigger than everyone else.
Whether you like him or not, there have been very few names at the same level in wrestling history as John Cena. He dominated WWE for the better part of a decade, becoming the face of the company and staying there for a very long time. However, everything that has a beginning must have an end and that means Cena’s time in WWE had to come to an end one day. That seems to be the case, but that does not mean Cena’s connections to WWE are gone.
Cena was recently a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he talked about his relationship with Vince McMahon. While acknowledging that he has mostly moved on from WWE, Cena said that McMahon has had a very positive impact on his life and that he sees McMahon as both a father figure and friend. Cena said that McMahon is full of wisdom and despite not wrestling since January 14, 2019 on Monday Night Raw, Cena still thinks of McMahon as his boss. There is no word on when Cena might be wrestling again.
Cena and McMahon have a complicated relationship. Check out some of their various moments:
Opinion: Cena is one of the most interesting cases in wrestling as he went from the top star in the company to just gone, almost overnight. You don’t see that very often and Cena’s departure has left a pretty big hole in WWE. There is no one who can just replace someone like Cena overnight and WWE is starting to see that in a hurry. I know he wasn’t all that popular among some fans, but Cena was a star of the highest level and he isn’t being replaced for a long time.
