Top AEW Star Discusses John Cena’s WWE Retirement Tour WWE

Following the WWE Money In The Bank premium live event, top AEW star Chris Jericho has discussed John Cena’s retirement tour.

At WWE Money In The Bank 2024, John Cena made a surprise appearance to announce that he is retiring from WWE and next year’s WrestleMania 41 will be the final one he competes on.

During the post show, Cena announced that his retirement tour will consist of 30-40 events and will run through December 2025.

One of Cena’s earliest opponents during his two decade run on the WWE main roster was current AEW star Chris Jericho.

Appearing on McGuire on Wrestling, Chris Jericho was asked about John Cena’s retirement tour. When the interviewer stated Jericho is going to have a career that goes longer than Cena’s, he answered:

“My career is already longer than John Cena’s. No, I mean it’s great.”

“John’s always had a great love for wrestling and he’s got a great connection with the fans so I think it’s a cool way to go about it.”

“People know that this is it and John’s not the type of guy to say anything lightly so I’m sure he’s been focused on this and working with the company to make sure it’s right and and I’m sure it’s gonna be a really great year-and-a-half for Cena fans and for John Cena himself.”

Jericho and Cena have shared the ring on many occasions, including a WWE Championship Match at SummerSlam 2005. The last time the two legends wrestled each other was in the Royal Rumble 2013, which Cena won.

Chris Jericho is currently the FTW Champion and leader of The Learning Tree stable in All Elite Wrestling.
