John Cena is a highly acclaimed and successful professional wrestler who has left a lasting impact on the industry. Regarded as one of the most legendary figures in wrestling history, Cena’s impressive in-ring abilities, charming personality, and connection with audiences have made him a recognizable name not only in the wrestling world, but also in popular culture. In fact, he still mentors WWE talent despite his absence.
John Cena made an appearance on the December 30 episode of SmackDown, where he teamed up with Kevin Owens to take on Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn in a tag team match. The match ended with Owens successfully pinning one of their opponents and securing the win for their team.
Cena clearly had a great time during the match but did not really do much, likely due to all the Hollywood obligations he had in store. Afterwards, fans wondered what he would do next.
While speaking to Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Seth Rollins was asked what he thinks about Cena still being around after all these years and what the two meant to each other in their respective careers. Rollins stated that Cena is still a mentor to him.
“John’s the GOAT man. John’s the best. John is incredible. And you know, I’m a footnote, really, in his career. John influenced so many talents over the years, he was a generational guy. For me though, on the other side of that, John influenced what I do so heavily. I took a ton of inspiration from John. I learned a lot being in the ring with John. I learned a lot watching John behind the scenes. And John still is a mentor to me, even now, even though he isn’t around that often
The Leader of Cenation is also locked in for WrestleMania 39. We will have to wait and see how WWE will be booked his upcoming feud, once John Cena will make his WWE television return.
