John Cena has been the iconic face of the WWE for many years, although he hasn't always enjoyed a favorable attitude from the public. His growing commitments in Hollywood took him away from wrestling in the latter part of his career, where he had to settle for a few sporadic appearances in the most important events on the calendar.
Suffice it to say that in 2021 the 16-time world champion did not even take part in WrestleMania, where the year before he had been the protagonist of a controversial match against The Fiend Bray Wyatt. In a recent interview with BT Sport, current NXT champion Karrion Kross expressed his desire to face the leader of the 'Cenation' one day.
Karrion Kross praises John Cena
"I think John Cena would be my ideal opponent for the future," said Karrion Kross. “Many have already mentioned The Rock or Brock Lesnar as rivals of their dreams, while I wish I had the chance to work with John.
Finding myself in the ring with a legend of his caliber, perhaps with the audience in the stands, would be really fantastic. In a way, it is as if two different generations meet. I was very inspired by the athletes of his time.
Even if you don't know him well in person, it is easy to understand that he is one of the guys who put in the hardest in this business. Cena represents the reason why so many young people do this job today. It would be an honor for me," he added.
Karrion believes their fighting styles would combine ideally: “I think we would have great chemistry in the ring, people would be amazed. When the time is right and I have a little more experience in the eyes of the fans, maybe I will be granted such an opportunity." According to numerous insiders, WWE's big mistake was not daring enough with the character of Cena.
His eternal 'babyface' connotation ended up tiring the WWE Universe at one point. 16-time World Champion John Cena is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time. John Cena was the face of WWE for over a decade but has transitioned into a part-time role over the last few years.
John Cena is also very active on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. His Instagram is especially interesting as he is known to post random photos without any explanation to get fans talking. Now, the Leader of the Cenation has shared the photo of WWE's logo on his Instagram without any caption, supposedly teasing a return.
