Last updated

In a major turn of events at WWE Crown Jewel 2023, John Cena faced a crushing defeat at the hands of The Bloodline’s Solo Sikoa.

John Cena vs Solo Sikoa: The Match That Shocked Many

Solo Sikoa didn’t just defeat Cena; he dominated him. Drawing parallels to Cena’s unforgettable defeat by Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2014, Sikoa unleashed a series of Samoan Spikes, leaving Cena almost lifeless in the ring.

The outcome became inevitable, with Sikoa securing what is arguably the pinnacle victory of his career.

The Riyadh audience, recognising Cena’s contributions and legacy, gave him a standing ovation as he struggled to his feet.

Michael Cole, the commentator, didn’t miss the chance to label Cena as the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All-Time), a sentiment echoed by many WWE fans.

Cena’s Future in WWE

Post-match speculations were rife about Cena’s future with WWE. The prevailing thought was that Cena’s current WWE stint would conclude with Crown Jewel.

At 46, Cena is reportedly set to pivot back to Hollywood, especially with the anticipated conclusion of the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strike action. The warm send-off he received post-match further fuelled these speculations.

However, Cena, known for his cryptic messages, might have dropped a hint about his future. Shortly after his loss, he uploaded a photo of football icon David Beckham on his Instagram.

The image showcased Beckham in a Paris St Germain jersey, leading to whispers about Cena possibly making an appearance at Backlash 2024, rumoured to be in Paris. Conversely, some fans interpreted this as Cena hinting at his retirement, drawing parallels with the photo being from Beckham’s last match before hanging up his boots.
