The end of an era is around the corner. US wrestler turned actor John Cena will retire from competing in all World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) events.

The 47-year-old announced while at the WWE Money in the Bank event in Canada over the weekend.

“Tonight I officially announce my retirement from the WWE.”

The crowd showed their support by chanting “Thank you Cena” followed by the wrestler replying: “What an incredible gesture of kindness”.

Although he’ll still remain part of the WWE family, he won’t be competing anymore. His final in-ring competition will be in 2025 and will form part of his farewell tour.

The wrestler is also known for his big heart. Cena is the all-time most requested celebrity by kids with the charity Make-A-Wish. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most number of wishes granted to children who have critical illnesses.
