Last night, the greatest of all time made his return to Raw. Cena took the ring to cut a promo about joining the Royal Rumble on January 27th in Arizona, then he was apart of a pointless 3 on 3 tag team match with Seth Rollins and Finn Balor. What is absolutely crazy about this is Raw viewership has been down immensely recently, but they bring Cena back and they see their viewership soar back up (same thing happened with Smackdown last week). As a matter of fact, that is probably why this is the best time to have him beat Rick Flair’s record of 16 time world champion.
Cena has been in and out of the WWE for years now. What’s funny about that is when Cena and the Rock had a fued, which highlights 2 Wrestlemania’s, about how the Rock was so wrapped up in Hollywood and how he was being selfish, yet here we are with Cena doing the same thing. John Cena is 16 time champion. Over his time in the WWE, he has been the most loved and most hated person. I think his time is coming to an end, so let’s send him off the best way imaginable.
While Cena is wrapping up a new movie, The Voyage of Dr. Dolittle and in the middle of filming Project X, his movie career should be slowing down for the moment. WWE should have Cena win the Royal Rumble, and then allow him to hide and finish up his filming just in time for him to return at the greatest stage of them all, Wrestlemania. Let him be the one to knock off the “New” Daniel Bryan, which could be an interesting feud given the Bellas history. Do this and allow him to relinquish the title the following night, thus announcing his retirement and he’s done. This is the perfect way for Cena to ride off and have an actual retirement unlike the Undertaker. Cena deserves it, we all know it.
