John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company the best he could for over 10 years. He was the face of the company and Cena worked very hard to maintain his top position as well. Kurt Angle also has a very high opinion of John Cena.
Cena’s record as a 16-time World Champion immediately put him on the same level as Ric Flair for many fans. The Leader Of Cenation tied the record after beating AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble in 2017.
While speaking on his AdFreeShows podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle stated that he believes John Cena will surpass Ric Flair’s record of World Title reigns.
“The answer is simple. Yes! Yes, he will break Ric Flair’s record). I genuinely believe that John Cena will be the only 17-time world champion. I do believe Randy Orton is going to catch up to him and possibly surpass him. So, you know, I know that records are made to be broken, and I believe John Cena is going to break Ric Flair’s record.”
Cena’s World Title reigns were called more prestigious than Ric Flair’s as well. John Cena is likely to return to WWE later this year. We’ll have to wait and see what WWE has planned for him once he is back.
