Could John Cena’s proposal signal an end to his time in the WWE? Here we discuss what’s next for him, and the betting lines for the upcoming Royal Rumble.
On April 2nd, WrestleMania 33 took place in Orlando, Florida in front of more than 75,000 people. During this show, Roman Reigns made WWE news by defeating The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar captured the WWE Universal Championship by beating Goldberg, and Randy Orton won his ninth WWE Championship with a win over Bray Wyatt.

It was an event full of surprises, but perhaps the most newsworthy part of the evening was John Cena’s proposal to longtime girlfriend Nikki Bella. Cena asked the question shortly after he and Bella made UK gambling news by winning the mixed tag team match, generating cheers of approval from the audience.
It’s these unexpected moments we’ve come to love about watching the WWE, but not long after the show fans began wondering whether John Cena’s proposal could mean an end to his time in the ring. According to Cena himself, he’s far from walking into the sunset.
“I am far from retiring, I feel like I am at my physical best,” he recently told Sky Sports. “A lot of folks in the WWE say that maybe I am past my prime and have lost a step and that creates a giant chip on [my] shoulder.” There you have it. Don’t expect John Cena’s proposal affecting his career anytime soon.
