John Cena’s wrestling future has left fans puzzled. Following a tough loss to Solo Sikoa at the recent Crown Jewel event, many are asking, is Cena truly retired from WWE, or is there more to the story?

In the aftermath of his defeat, the ‘Greatest Of All Time’ posted a cryptic image on Instagram, comparing his situation to David Beckham’s last game for Paris Saint-Germain F.C. The defeat at Crown Jewel saw Cena on the receiving end of multiple Samoan Spikes from The Bloodline’s enforcer, leaving him battered and bruised. His departure from the arena that night was marked by a sense of dejection and devastation.

SAG-AFTRA Strike and John Cena’s WWE Future

While fans wonder about Cena’s next move, it’s worth noting that his current WWE run may be influenced by the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike situation. ‘The Champ’ became unexpectedly available for a summer run, with a break from Hollywood commitments, and made his return to the WWE, even clashing with The Bloodline in the process.

Surprisingly, there were no clear indications that Crown Jewel would be his swan song, and there were prior rumors that he might participate in WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia next spring. Despite his thriving acting career, Cena made a comeback for a WrestleMania 39 feud with Austin Theory, ultimately losing to the then-United States Champion on the grand stage, following some fiery exchanges on the microphone.

So, while fans are left guessing about Cena’s future, the only certainty seems to be the uncertainty surrounding his WWE career. Will the “People’s Champ” return to the squared circle, or is Hollywood calling him back once more? The wrestling world holds its breath, eager for the next chapter in John Cena’s storied career.
