John Cena announced during Money in the Bank that he is preparing to end his WWE career. WrestleMania 41 will mark the end of his retirement tour, but he will participate in 30 to 40 events until then. Naturally, WWE wants to make sure that Cena goes out with a bang.

After the WWE Money In The Bank premium live event, AEW star Chris Jericho discussed John Cena’s retirement tour. After all, Jericho celebrated his 30th year in the pro wrestling business a couple of years ago, which AEW celebrated with a special episode of Dynamite.

Appearing on McGuire on Wrestling, Chris Jericho was asked about John Cena’s retirement tour. When the interviewer mentioned that Jericho’s career would outlast Cena’s, he responded to say that fans have a great year-and-a-half of television ahead of him.

“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. I’m sure it’s going to be a really great year-and-a-half for Cena fans and for John Cena himself.”

Chris Jericho and Cena have faced each other many times, including a WWE Championship Match at SummerSlam 2005. Jericho knows what it’s like to face the Greatest of All Time. Their last match was at the Royal Rumble 2013, which Cena won.

We will see what John Cena does for the rest of his time with WWE. He did not dismiss the idea of a 17th World Title reign if circumstances allow. This could be a significant year for everyone involved, and Chris Jericho will likely keep an eye on developments.
