You either love him, or you hate him. Regardless of where you fit in with that sentiment, you most certainly respect him. John Cena has been a fixture in WWE programming for the better part of 20 years now and despite what his detractors say, he has earned every single accolade that has come his way.
It has been a long and highly successful run for John Cena as a WWE Superstar. He has accomplished everything he could achieve and he has always been a positive source of encouragement and leadership in the WWE locker room. Of course, one of John's most well-known achievements has been his work with the Make-a-Wish Foundation. John has personally granted roughly 600 wishes for children battling some form of terminal illness. John has selflessly made an impact on hundreds of kids' lives from all walks of life.
Cena has reached a point in his life where he is being forced to look at his mortality and make a decision how much longer he might want to be an in-ring WWE Superstar. At 42 years old, it's no secret that his greatest days are likely behind him. With that said, he still has time to pass the proverbial torch before riding off into the Florida sunset.
In this column, we will take a look at 5 WWE Superstars who are worthy of being Cena's final foe. Here are 5 WWE Superstars that could retire John Cena.
#5 Drew McIntyre
This one will be unpopular by many of my readers, but I would challenge you to simply think about Drew McIntyre's current status and just how far he has come, in route to becoming a top-tier WWE Superstar.
When Drew was originally signed, Vince McMahon himself dubbed Drew as "The Chosen One" and even went as far as proclaiming to the world that McIntyre was a future world champion. Those were the words directly from the boss himself. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be too long afterward that Drew would join a jobber faction known as 3MB, where Drew would never amount to much more than a radical, Scottish air-guitar player aside his two bandmates, which consisted of a redneck from West Virginia and a Punjabi Indian...yes.
Eventually Drew would be released from his WWE contract in 2014. When he was released, many thought we would never see or hear from McIntyre again. However, Drew had other plans in mind. He would go on to dominate in ever promotion who gave him any attention. It would not take long for Mr. McMahon and crew to take notice that McIntyre may very well have been talented enough to carry that "Chosen One" moniker, had he been given the opportunity. That is why you see him on RAW today, kicking the heads off of the top WWE Superstars in route to a well-deservedly title opportunity that we should see soon. Putting Cena in the ring with McIntyre would certainly give him the rub he needs to get to the next level and be considered a worthy title contender when that time comes.
