John Cena went the entirely of 2019 without wrestling on WWE pay-per-view. He is returning to the ring at WrestleMania 36 to take on The Fiend. This wasn’t even a match he seemingly wanted.

Cena showed up on Friday Night SmackDown to announce that he was doing the right things at WrestleMania this year. He didn’t want to be a part-timer taking up a full-time Superstar’s WrestleMania spot. He understands how valuable those spots are.

While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Mick Foley revealed his reasons why he believes that John Cena will retire from the ring following his match against Bray Wyatt in Tampa.

“[Laughs] I wasn’t happy with it, but The Fiend is not someone who needs a title to define him. It’s gonna be very interesting and I think it adds another huge match as John Cena gave an impassioned promo and it leads me to believe this will be his final match. I would not be surprised to see The Fiend come out of Mania stronger than ever.”

“I think in the future [The Fiend] does not need a title. He’s an attraction in the same way as Roddy Piper never needed a title. I didn’t care for the way it was taken off of him, but he’s a guy who always lands on his feet. I think he’ll come out of Mania just fine and he’ll be a huge star for WWE for years to come. He’s got The Mandible Claw! How could he not?”

WrestleMania 36 is in Tampa, a place that John Cena has called home for years. It would also tell a full circle story from WrestleMania XXX with Bray Wyatt.

We’ll have to see if Bray Wyatt will really close out John Cena’s pro wrestling career at the show of shows. Mick Foley certainly seems ready for it.
