Cena has granted more than 650 Wishes since the start of his WWE career, and helped celebrate the Foundation's 40th Anniversary back on April 29.

Cena's most recent WWE match came at WrestleMania 36, in which Bray Wyatt forced him to relive his greatest career failures and reflect on his biggest criticisms before The Fiend caused him to disappear after pinning him.

Prior to his match, Cena appeared on the After The Bell podcast and gave an incredibly insightful look at the current WWE product and the challenge today's wrestlers face.


"It [the generation] needs what I'm not sure it can produce, and that's just a state of where everything is now. Which is weird because it kind of always corrects itself. Where in a day and age where it needs a frontman or woman, and that's what will be able to define what the era is because it takes on those personality traits of its top star," Cena said. "Like I've said before I don't know if, all things considered, the crowd is so mixed that if the company puts its faith behind an individual, the knee-jerk reaction of the audience — even if they liked the guy last week — is to say, 'F— you, you're not going to tell me who I like!' So the audience is also tipping the scales of this not being able to happen."

"Universal popularity will never happen because someone will see it and get onto it and be like, 'He seems to be getting popular, let's stop this right now. Or, 'She's getting popular, let's change this right now,'" he continued. "And I've seen it happen with guys that are really darlings of that underground crew make it, and then as soon as they make it,the rug is pulled out from under them."
