WWE Superstar John Cena Announces Pending Retirement In 2025

John Cena is giving it his last go-round, and that comes straight from the man himself.

More specifically, Cena said he's retiring from the WWE in 2025. It will end a nearly 20-year career.

Cena made the announcement in Toronto at Saturday's Money in the Bank event.

"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," Cena said to the live audience in a video the WWE posted to social media. "I want to say thank you."

Cena, a proud native of Massachusetts, also spoke of WWE Raw's pending move to Netflix.

"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," Cena said.

He further addressed his retirement in a post-event press conference.

"People say they're walking away, and two years later they come back. I want to set the record straight right now, I'm done. This is it," Cena told reporters. "If you ever wanted to be a part of this one last time, we're going to do it as big as we can and we're fighting everybody and we hope you come enjoy the fun."

Cena won 16 world championships during his nearly two decades in the WWE.

"There were many before me, there will be many after. I guess what I have left to do is say my thank yous before that chapter closes," Cena said.
