John Cena's WWE career could be coming to an end based on his actions earlier tonight.
Cena was discovered by WWE back in 2000 and was signed to a deal before being sent to their then-developmental territory of Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). After two years in developmental Cena would make a historic main roster debut in June of 2002 on SmackDown when he answered an open challenge from Kurt Angle. While Cena brought a big fight the former Olympic Gold Medalist's way, Angle was able to cleanly pick up the win, but was frustrated that it was that difficult to pull off.
Following his debut Cena got a ton of praise from Superstars backstage, which included The Undertaker who shook his hand and told him he did a good job. From then on out, Cena began to be groomed to become the next big mega-star of the company after the departures of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
After a few reigns as United States Championship, John Cena propelled into a completely new tier of superstardom when he defeated JBL in the main event of WrestleMania 21 to win his first WWE Championship. From then on out Cena was the new face of the company and would go on to win multiple World Titles.
Today, the 40-year-old has racked up a record-tying 16 World Championship wins (13 WWE titles and three World Heavyweight Championships), in addition to four Tag Team Title reigns (each time with a different partner), five United States Title wins, a Money In The Bank win, and two Royal Rumble match wins (2008 and 2013).
He is a sure-fire Hall Of Famer and will go down in history as one of, if not, the greatest WWE Superstar of all time. Recently Cena has been feuding with who WWE is grooming to be the next big face of WWE, Roman Reigns. Cena and Reigns went head-to-head in one of the main events of No Mercy in an epic match, that saw "The Big Dog" come out on top with a vicious spear.
After the match Cena had an emotional moment in the ring, acting as if it was the last time he'd ever be in one. His actions gave WWE fans the impression that he could be signaling the end of his career:
On RAW Talk after the show Cena admitted that he isn't retiring, however, he won't be able to keep up wrestling at the pace he once used to. He then got emotional and stated that his career is now taking a turn and will be seeing a major change moving forward.
