john cena

For many years John Cena was the top star in WWE, but it’s no big secret that his wrestling career has been winding down.

Cena last wrestled at WrestleMania 36 where he was defeated by Bray Wyatt in the first ever Firefly Fun House match, and he hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since.

On Tuesday night, John Cena was the first in person guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon since March, and he confirmed that his in-ring career is not over.

“I have a very young audience in WWE, a lot of kids and families. And as my in-ring career with WWE is not as active, although not over, I wanted to continue to send messaging to those younger viewers.”

Cena went on to talk about how he continues to inspire his younger fans with his Elbow Grease book series.

“So many times, parents have told me, ‘Your Never Give Up words have helped my son or daughter.’ Ok, so that’s why I had to come up with a children’s book series that is fun, bright, and colorful, and about monster trucks. It’s a fun read but there are some underlying things there about Never Give Up.”

At this point it’s not clear when John Cena might get back in the ring, but it will be interesting to see if he returns for WrestleMania season in 2021.
