John Cena confirms he will not be wrestling at WrestleMania 32

Published 2 Comments

Whether or not John Cena would be competing at WrestleMania 32 later this year has been a major talking point in the WWE Universe since he was sidelined back in January due to a shoulder injury.

It was pretty much a certainty that the company wouldn't be rushing one of their top performers back so quickly from another injury, but WWE fans have been desperate for some sort of conclusion to the matter.

Finally, it has been confirmed today that Cena will not be competing at this year's WrestleMania.

The 15-time World Champion confirmed the news during the WWE's official announcement of WrestleMania 33 taking place in Orlando next year.

One of the WWE's Twitter accounts, WWE WrestleMania, quoted John Cena, saying: "For the first time in a decade in a half, this year I will be watching. #WrestleMania means the world to me."

For the first time since 2003, Cena will not be competing at a WrestleMania. The Cenation will be disappointed that they will not be able to see their favorite superstar perform on the biggest wrestling stage of them all.

Fans stayed positive that the former United States Champion would still compete because of his history of recovering from injuries very quickly. When he announced on Twitter earlier this week that he had some very big news to reveal, many thought he had recovered ahead of schedule once again.

It was rumored that Cena would be facing The Undertaker at this year's WrestleMania in a retirement match, giving WWE fans a suitable send off for The Phenom's career in his home state of Texas. However, this now appears to have been put on hold for at least another year. It could be the match that headlines next year's event.

Just because he isn't competing, doesn't mean he won't be appearing on the show. The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion could still appear at WrestleMania in a non-competitive role, just like several other superstars have done so in the past such as The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Cena's absence from the event in a competitive sense is a huge blow for the WWE, as he is always one of the main draws for people to go and watch the show live. That's why he has headlined so many WrestleMania shows.

However, every cloud has a silver lining, and this unfortunate event will provide the company with a perfect opportunity to build up other superstars for the future and when Cena eventually does decide to call it a day and retire from wrestling. Stars like Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose will benefit greatly in the long run without John on the card this year.
