John Cena says his last time is now.

Cena made a surprise appearance at WWE Money In The Bank on Saturday night. He was introduced by MITB host, Trish Stratus. Cena hit the ring and announced his retirement, then gave a passionate speech about why it made sense to do in Toronto.

Cena spoke about WWE making history, citing the move to Netflix at an example. Cena then announced several lasts, implying he would be at the first RAW on Netflix in January. He then said he will appear at the 2025 Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 41.

Cena closed by saying that if you’re a fan or a WWE Superstar and you want some, come get some, because his last time is now.

“The 2025 Royal Rumble will be my last. The 2025 Elimination Chamber will be my last,” Cena said at Money In The Bank in Toronto. “And I’m here tonight to announce that in Las Vegas, WrestleMania 2025 will be the last WrestleMania I compete in.”
