16-time World Champion and one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, John Cena could soon be winding down on his in-ring career in WWE.

After receiving the prestigious 2018 SI Muhammad Ali Legacy Award on Tuesday, Cena was interviewed by Sports Illustrated during which he was asked about being in the “definite twilight” of his wrestling career.

“It’s a giant relay race, and I’m in the phase where I’m handing the stick off,” said Cena.  “My time is up. Someone else’s time is now.”

It appears that the Leader of Cenation now plans to nurture young talent rather than himself as he confirmed during the interview that it’s about time someone else stepped in his shoes in WWE.

Perhaps the WWE Universe is in the final (nostalgic) years of Cena’s in-ring career when their beloved hero bids farewell to the squared circle, once and for all.

The good news is that The Champ will be making his WWE return on December 26 at the Madison Square Garden with a series of live events that extends to the middle of January. 

However, it appears that the hero of WWE Universe won’t be working a televised match anytime soon. The Bumblebee star told The Toronto Sun:

“I was given the choice of taking one month to catch my breath and live what I would call a normal life. It took me about two seconds to turn that down. On December 26th, I return to Madison Square Garden and do a nice live event run with the WWE right up through the middle of January.”

“None of these shows are televised. I’m literally just doing it because I want to get back to a place I feel most comfortable and to working with people I can call my family. And I want to have some fun.”

Cena has been laser-focused on Hollywood since announcing himself as a free agent last year and “passing the torch” to Roman Reigns at No Mercy (2017). In 2018, The Champ has worked only two televised WWE matches since WrestleMania 34 – one at the Greatest Royal Rumble in April and the other at Super Show-Down in October.
