At Money In The Bank 2024, John Cena announced that 2025 will be his final year as a wrestler. Next year, the 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion plans to work 30 to 40 dates as part of his retirement tour.

During an interview on “McGuire on Wrestling” podcast, current AEW star & FTW Champion Chris Jericho had the following to say about Cena’s retirement announcement:

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

When asked about his own in-ring retirement, Jericho said:

“I’ll know when it’s time, you know? I’m really enjoying what I’m doing and I’m still contributing at a high level. I can still have the best match on the show on any given night — not every night but any given night. And I just really love what we’re doing with AEW right now. So there’s really no rush on that.

And when I know, I’ll know. And I think that’s kind of the best way to put it; and for right now, I’m having too much fun and enjoying it and really enjoying building AEW.

Just 5 years in, we’ve already gone so far and have so much further to go on the highest of levels. So from that standpoint, we’ll see. And as of right now, as long as I’m having fun and enjoying myself and feeling good in the ring and out, there’s no reason to stop.”

On this week’s Dynamite, Jericho defeated Samoa Joe in a Stampede Street Fight after putting him through a Wall with a Forklift.
