Wrestling wouldn't be the product we see today without John Cena's input. The 16-time world champion has been the iconic face of WWE for many years, becoming a true icon both inside and outside the ring. The Boston champion has moved away from wrestling in recent years, thanks to advancing age and a desire to make it into the cinema.
Following in the footsteps of the legendary The Rock, the leader of the 'Cenation' didn't take long to become one of Hollywood's most popular actors. His last appearance in WWE was in SummerSlam 2021, where he showed a strong performance against 'Tribal Chief' Roman Reigns.
As everyone knows by now, John will return on the June 27 episode of Monday Night Raw to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his debut with the company. In the latest edition of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett said beautiful words for Cena.
Jeff Jarrett praises John Cena
"If you analyze John Cena's career in detail, you realize that he made wrestling history. I am not referring only to the victories and titles he has collected, but also to his longevity.
He has had the ability to stay on top for a very long time, despite being a physically demanding activity. His perseverance and hard work made a difference, allowing him not to suffer serious injuries. We are talking about a unique talent, that perhaps we will never see again.
Not everyone realizes how important John Cena was for WWE and wrestling in general,” said Jarrett. Recently, The Miz also praised the great John: “I learned a lot from him. Cena is a wealth of knowledge and is more than willing to share his experience of him with others as long as you are open to listening to him.
He taught me a lot of things in the ring and I improved visibly thanks to his help. I could go on and on. I owe him a lot and I will never stop thanking him." John Cena wrote in his tweet that fans are aware Theory is better than him in many departments, including talent and strength.
"Everyone understands that you have far more talent, strength, and gifts than I ever had. Don’t apologize for that. Ever. An apology should come 20 years from now if you fail to provide the EFFORT needed to turn your potential into your legacy. I hope that day never comes," wrote Cena.
