John Cena Not Interested In Choosing His Opponents During 2025 WWE Retirement Tour

2025's John Cena retirement tour will apparently not feature handpicked opponents by the man himself.

John Cena is not interested in personally picking the opponents he'll face during his WWE retirement run, according to a tweet from WrestlePurists

The post reads:

"We heard that John Cena saying he has no interest in hand-picking opponents is 100% legit his stance for this last run. Many talent already angling to get a match (as reported by @Fightful) and he’s at least willing to work any and everyone."

This comes following Cena's surprise announcement at last weekend's Money in the Bank pay-per-view in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, stating that he'll retire after a last run with the company in 2025. He mentioned a handful of shows he's set to appear at - the WWE Raw Netflix debut episode, the Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania 41 - before later confirming at the post-show press conference that he intends to make "30 to 40" dates.

Cena's latest match saw him team up with Miz and R-Truth to defeat the Judgment Day on the Raw after WrestleMania 40. His last singles match was a defeat to Solo Sikoa at Crown Jewel 2023 in Saudi Arabia.
