Chris Jericho weighs in on John Cena’s pending retirement

Jericho shows loves to Cena. 

It was at WWE’s Money in the Bank Premium Live Event that 16-time World Champion John Cena revealed that he’ll be retiring from in-ring action in December 2025. As of this writing, Cena is confirmed for the Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 41.

His announcement was brought up to Chris Jericho during Jericho’s appearance on McGuire on Wrestling. Here’s what Jericho had to say on the matter: 

My career is already longer than John Cena’s (Jericho responded when the interviewer said he’s going to have a career that goes longer than 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 together on a multitude of occasions between TVs, house shows and pay-per-views. The last time they shared a ring together was Royal Rumble 2013 which Cena won.
