WWE News: Cena’s Commitment to the Fans

Cena, known for his dedication to WWE fans, expressed his desire to retire on his own terms. “I made a promise to the consumer early on, to WWE fans, because I know how tough it is to be a fan. You gotta come out of pocket — and WWE has a ton of content — it takes a lot to be a passionate fan, and our fanbase is passionate and global,” he stated.

Cena, who turns 47 this year, feels great but acknowledges the physical demands of being a WWE performer. He insists on maintaining the same level of passion as the fanbase and aims to give back what they have given him over the years.
