John Cena Delivers Emotional Farewell Speech to Wrestling Fans

In a poignant address to his devoted fans on Saturday night, John Cena announced his retirement from in-ring competition, marking next year’s WWE WrestleMania as his final appearance. Speaking from Toronto, Canada, Cena was met with a mix of cheers and boos from a crowd reluctant to see him leave.

“I am officially retiring,” Cena declared, outlining plans for a farewell tour scheduled for next year. “The 2025 Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber will be my last, culminating with WrestleMania 2025 in Las Vegas.”


During his heartfelt six-minute speech, the audience erupted into a chant of “Thank you, Cena,” prompting Cena to express gratitude for their unwavering support over the years. “Thank you so much for letting me perform in this arena that you’ve built,” he acknowledged. “Your voice is loud, and your honesty is beautifully brutal.”

Cena, a 16-time WWE champion spanning nearly two decades, has also carved out a successful career in Hollywood, appearing in notable films like “Barbie,” “Argylle,” and several installments of the “Fast & Furious” series. Despite his film successes, Cena has remained dedicated to his wrestling persona throughout.

Addressing the timing of his retirement, Cena referenced the WWE’s “Money in the Bank” event, describing it as “money in the bank” — the ultimate symbol of opportunity. “This farewell isn’t the end,” he assured fans. “It’s filled with new opportunities.”



Looking ahead, Cena hinted at future engagements with WWE, including potential matches and new ventures as the franchise evolves. “If you want some, come and get some,” he challenged WWE superstars, signaling an exciting chapter ahead.

In a post-event press conference, Cena clarified that while WrestleMania 2025 will mark his final in-ring match, he plans to remain involved with WWE in various capacities. “WWE is my home, and I love it,” Cena affirmed. “Just because I’m stepping back physically doesn’t mean I’m distancing myself from something I cherish.”

With a farewell tour slated for 2025, Cena anticipates a series of memorable moments leading up to his final match, expressing gratitude to fans for their enduring support and promising more to come from his storied career.
