John Cena was on his longest WWE run in over six years, as fans were just happy to see him on WWE television every week. That run more or less ended after Crown Jewel last year, but he isn’t done wrestling just yet. In fact, Cena made the case for why he would want to work in NXT.

John Cena faced Solo Sikoa at the Crown Jewel Premium Live Event in Saudi Arabia, where the Leader of Cenation was systematically dismantled and brutally attacked by the young Samoan. Following his loss in the match, Cena teased retirement immediately afterwards.

While speaking on Insight With Chris Van Vliet, John Cena went into detail when it came to character development. During that topic, Cena expressed his interest in NXT, emphasizing the diverse personalities in the promotion.

The Leader of Cenation pondered the idea of contributing and acknowledged the importance of not just executing moves, but also connecting with the audience on a deeper level, making them believe in the performance.


”I’d love to go to NXT because everybody has a personality and.. what would I do? Did I ever think of this for an idea? The people are thinking the same way I was. Like I just wanna go out and do these moves. You need that, but you also have to get them to believe.”

In the end, John Cena expressed a desire to explore new opportunities, recognizing that he is in the latter stages of his career. The prospect of Cena contributing to NXT could greatly benefit the younger talent in the promotion. It remains to be seen whether Cena will eventually make his way to NXT.
