Three Early Pitches for John Cena at WrestleMania 39
John Cena is the greatest WWE wrestler of all time, it’s as simple as that. If you disagree, then you’re stuck in the past clinging onto the guys you grew up watching.
But father time catches up to everyone and he’s on his way to Cena. The 45-year-old has slowly been wrestling less and less over the last two or three years, though he’s still kept his record of competing in a match every year of his WWE career. It’s truly a remarkable accomplishment for a spectacular wrestler.
WrestleMania 39 may very well be the champ’s last match. If it is, it’s only fitting his last match be in Hollywood, which is where WrestleMania 39 will be held. There are rumors that John Cena may be busy in the months leading up to WrestleMania 39, but there’s still hope he is going to wrestle.
Here are three early pitches for John Cena at WrestleMania 39.
John Cena vs. Edge
Cena and Edge have one of the most memorable rivalries of all time. There is an entire generation, including myself, who grew up watching these two battle one another. I’ll never forget the image of Cena delivering an Attitude Adjustment to Edge from the top of a ladder through four tables.
Edge’s time in the ring is dwindling as well, so it would be nice to see these two battle it out one more time. But I’m not pitching a normal match here.
I’m pitching a double retirement match between Cena and Edge. I’m not saying it’s never been done, but I can’t think of any time where a match like this took place. This would be Cena and Edge just agreeing that this will be both their last match. They would go out there and leave it all in the ring, one last time.
This would be the perfect sendoff for both men and an iconic moment for an entire generation of wrestling fans.
John Cena vs. Austin Theory
John Cena arrived in WWE at a young age, similar to Austin Theory. Cena arrived full of himself and immediately made an impact, similar to Austin Theory. The craziest similarity of them all, though? They both wore biker shorts.
The similarity between these two from when Cena debuted is scary. Theory has been presented as the next big thing in WWE. He’s constantly breaking records by being the youngest to do them.
Cena taking on Theory would be a passing of the torch. The biggest wrestler possibly ever passing the torch to the next great star. This one doesn’t have to be Cena’s last match, but it has to be clear he is passing the torch to Theory.
John Cena Becomes a 17-time Champion
Cena has broken countless records throughout his WWE career, but the most important of them is he is tied with Ric Flair for most title reigns in WWE history.
If WWE wants John Cena to be the greatest wrestler of all time, they need to get him to 17 championship reigns. Fans don’t realize how lucky we are to be living in the John Cena era and to have him finish it as a WWE Champion would be the cherry on top.
If Roman Reigns is still the champion, it would make sense for Cena to come after him. Those two men have some serious history with each other, so the feud would make sense.
As much as some fans may hate having another Cena championship run, he deserves it. He deserves to be the most decorated WWE champion of all time and undoubtedly the greatest wrestler ever.
