7 Wrestlers who can retire John Cena
When John Cena finally retires, who could do the honours?
John Cena has been at the top of the professional wrestling world for more than 10 years. He’s a 15-time world champion, main-evented 5 WrestleMania, won 2 Royal Rumble’s and he’s a role model outside the ring. Cena has done more Make A Wish visits than anyone else in history and is transitioning into television and movies. Cena is irreplaceable in more ways than WWE can even think of. When casual fans think of the WWE, they think John Cena.
When Cena finally retires, WWE have to be very careful with who gets the honour. This person has to be talented enough and have enough of a connection with the crowd to be bestowed with the spot of being Cena’s ‘heir’. WWE have to be careful that this person will be able to carry the immense pressure on their shoulders.
A number of names come to mind from WWE’s current roster so let’s take a look at the possibilities.
7: Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens made his main roster debut by taking out John Cena. He beat Cena clean in their first PPV match against each other and with WWE pushing Owens as one of the top heels of the New Era, Owens will be one of the top contenders to be John Cena’s last opponent with Owens possibly turning into a tweener following his match with Cena – Owens should never go full babyface, an anti-establishment tweener is a better fit for his style.
The former WWE Universal Champion and Cena can tear the house down on their night and the match will be one fit for the retirement of a legend like John Cena. Owens has the potential to be one of the faces of WWE – I believe that he’s a once in a generation talent – and retiring Cena would help Owens break through the stratosphere and emerge as one of the top names in WWE.
