Popular WWE superstar and 16-time world champion, John Cena announced his retirement from the WWE during the Money in the Bank event on Saturday.

The 47-year-old wrestling legend will embark on a farewell tour, marking the end of his two-decade-long career with the wrestling promotion.

John Cena, known for his signature catchphrase “You can’t see me” and his crossover success in Hollywood, addressed the audience while wearing a red shirt emblazoned with the words “The last time is now” and a matching red hat.

He took center stage at the Scotiabank Arena to reflect on his illustrious career and express his gratitude towards WWE.

“Why am I here? Tonight I officially announce my retirement from the WWE,” Cena declared. “I’ve been doing this a while. I’ve been in WWE for over two decades and in that time I’ve seen incredible waves of prosperity like we got right now. WWE is the hottest ticket in town, no doubt.”

Cena revealed that his farewell tour will include participation in next year’s Royal Rumble, the Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania in Las Vegas.

He invited his competitors to make the most of his remaining time in the ring, saying, “This farewell does not end tonight. It is filled with opportunity. Everybody, RAW will make 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.”

“The 2025 Royal Rumble will be my last. The 2025 Elimination Chamber will be my last and I’m here tonight to announce that WrestleMania Las Vegas in 2025 will be the last WrestleMania I compete in,” John Cena continued. “I know that’s a lot to take in. Probably a lot of questions out there, which is why I’m telling you right now I am going to kick off the press conference right after the show and I will be fielding any and all questions to do with my retirement.”

Expressing his heartfelt appreciation, John Cena concluded, “Thank you so much always for your voice, because it’s really loud and your honesty because it’s beautifully brutal. and most of all thank you so much for allowing me to be here with you tonight to let the world know we are planning something unforgettable which also involves me returning to Toronto to kick some a**.”
