Backstage News On John Cena’s WWE Retirement Announcement

John Cena Is Back At WWE Money In The Bank 2021

Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving John Cena and Women’s Titles.

• John Cena announced his retirement plan from WWE at Money In The Bank. He won’t have his final match at WrestleMania 41. WrestleMania 41 will feature his final WrestleMania match, not his final match. His retirement tour will go on from January to December 2025 and he plans to work 30-40 dates next year.

Fightful Select noted that Cena’s presence in Toronto on July 6 was well-known, but the wrestlers backstage didn’t know Cena was there to announce his retirement.

They learned about that plan when they saw his “The Last Time Is Now” merchandise. While some within WWE were aware, the news was kept confidential.

WWE plans to heavily promote Cena’s retirement tour, with frequent appearances expected throughout 2025. Discussions are ongoing about how to accommodate Cena’s schedule and ensure his involvement with WWE after his retirement.

• It appears that two new titles may be on their way to WWE.

WWE’s women’s division might be getting a significant boost. Reports suggest the company is considering introducing Women’s United States and Intercontinental Titles, representing each main roster brand (RAW and SmackDown).

Fightful Select mentioned that while nothing is confirmed yet, multiple sources within the company have discussed these new titles. The circulating images of these titles on social media are AI-generated art, not actual photos of the championships.

Talent within the company has heard about the possible new titles, which many have been advocating for over the past few years.

WWE recently introduced a mid-card women’s title in NXT: Women’s North American Championship.
