WWE SmackDown star Natalya recently revealed that John Cena and The Rock had real-life tension after Cena called out his wrestling rival for having promo notes on his wrist during a heated feud in 2012. In the most recent episode of A&E’s WWE Rivals, Cena addressed the incident, sharing that he was told about The Rock’s notes just 90 seconds before heading to the ring.
John Cena, a 16-time World Champion in professional wrestling, recently made a highly-anticipated comeback on WWE RAW and set up a match for WrestleMania 39. Following his emotional return, Cena posted a tweet that led fans to believe he may be retiring.
However, in a later interview with AP News, he clarified that he has no intention of retiring and was simply reflecting on the fact that this may be the “twilight” of his journey in WWE. Cena explained that it was the first time he entered the arena knowing that there is a definitive end, and while he has accepted a match at WrestleMania, he wanted to convey his love for the WWE universe and the energy they bring to the sport.
“I tried to put it in words in Twitter. I guess I didn’t explain myself correctly. It was the first time I came out into the arena knowing that this has a definitive end. Normally, you come out, you get all excited, OK, this is the next one and I’m waiting for the next one. I’m not done, of course. I made that statement accepting a match at WrestleMania so I know I have at least one more in front of me. But what I was trying to convey was, that was the first time I looked at all that excitement and energy and realized this is the twilight of that journey.”
