CM Punk Comments On John Cena WWE Retirement Announcement WWE

CM Punk commented on tonight’s announcement from John Cena that he was retiring from WWE in 2025 after a ‘Farewell Tour’ throughout the year.

In the WWE Money in the Bank post-show press conference, CM Punk was asked what his thoughts were on John Cena announcing his retirement tonight.

CM Punk said about his response to the announcement:

“I texted him right away and I said, ‘Don’t leave before you say hi to me’. And he texted back, ‘Haha, have a good one tonight’. And I immediately took that as, ‘Piss off, I’m leaving’, so…

“I know he’s busy, he’s filming Peacemaker so I figured he was leaving right away, I was pleasantly surprised to run into him afterwards and I told him I’ll be the guy that drags him out of retirement.

“This retirement that he says he’s gonna adhere to and this is it and when the final one happens that’s gonna be it, like, yeah, 15 years I’ll drag him out of retirement.

“But Cena I think to my career means a lot. I don’t think there’s many people up in that rare air where if you talk about my career, I feel you have to talk about John. And it makes me feel proud that I think if you talk about John’s career, I think you have to talk about me. We’re married in that respect.

“Proud of him, he gets to go out on his terms, I know that’s important. I’m looking forward to what he does, and I told him that if it’s gonna be one more time, we gotta do it at least one more time.”
