At WrestleMania 39, John Cena returned to the ring and lost to Austin Theory in a United States Championship match.
Cena made a special entrance with kids from the Make-A-Wish Foundation being on the stage with him for his grand entrance.
During an interview on The Today Show, the 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion had the following to say about his entrance:
“The hope of fulfilling gratitude. Any good, warm thing that makes you feel great. This year, at WrestleMania, we got to give 15 or 20 Make-A-Wish kids a WrestleMania entrance in front of 80,000 people.
Normally, the entrance is something you do by yourself, but WWE had the idea to give the Make-A-Wish kids the moment and the perspective that very few get to see.
I was all on board, and it was great.”
Cena holds the record for granting more Make-A-Wish wishes than any other celebrity: 650.
The Cenation Leader was recently asked about the topic of ‘passing the torch’, which he did to Roman Reigns, who is the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
While talking about it, Cena said The Tribal Chief is the greatest of all time time.
Cena also noted that he wishes he could still wrestle a full-time schedule in WWE today, but at the age of 46 and doing this for over two decades, his body can’t handle it anymore, and what he has left in the tank is what you saw at WrestleMania 39 in his match against Theory.
We reported before that WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long heavily criticized Cena’s WrestleMania Hollywood performance, saying that Cena’s heart isn’t in wrestling anymore.
