He has not appeared on WWE TV in over a year and after turning 43, there may not be long left for fans to see him many more times in action.
But it is an up-and-coming WWE star that has declared he is ‘VERY ready’ to retire the Leader of the Cenation.
It all started on Twitter when a fan suggested that Cena needs to go out on the ‘highest level’ as they named Kross as the ideal man to retire him.
The NXT king saw that tweet and replied: “I would be honoured… and VERY ready.”
Just hours later it was Cena’s turn to respond.
He posted a photo of Kross in NXT on Instagram, but in his typical fashion, he did not include a caption.
That certainly excited Kross as he returned the favour with a snap of Cena in WWE action.
