WWE legend John Cena has been sending hella mixed signals since he passed the torch to Roman Reigns at No Mercy 2017. One day he's teasing retirement, the next day he's claiming he'll never leave WWE. Following his match with Roman, Cena went on to wrestle about 6 or 7 more matches between late 2017 through October 2018. In 2019, Cena agreed to do two shows but that wasn't originally on the cards, he agreed because Vince was desperate and Cena was honoring his promise of not leaving WWE high and dry. However, after originally being slated for a WrestleMania match, Cena ended up not competing. Cena competed in two multi-people tag matches in 2019, but hasn't had televised singles match since April 2018 and hasn't had a match at all since January 2019. Cena has been all over the blogs stating that he's "never leaving WWE but see's [himself] working in a different, non-wrestling capacity role in the company." I just seen an interview this morning where he stated “As a 42-year-old, going to be 43 in April … I already know that I’m a little lighter, I’m a little slower, I’m not as strong, so all of the physical signs are like, ‘I’m here, I’m here, I’m here,’” he says. “I can’t lie to myself and say those things aren’t happening. They are. And either I accommodate my performance, or just say, ‘Hey, it’s time to do something different." That latter statement is what has me confused because he is doing something completely different. After 21 years in the wrestling business, has the great John Cena basically quietly retired from active competitIon?
