WWE News: John Cena Not Willing To Break Ric Flair’s 16 World Title Reigns
The 16 world championship reigns set by Ric Flair is perhaps the greatest accolade set by a wrestler in the sports entertainment. This can be considered as the ultimate pinnacle achieved by someone who has always been considered as the greatest of all-time. Only one man that is John Cena has been able to touch him with achieving the same number of reigns.
Considering that John Cena is not a retired person and can continue wrestling stints for years to follow, there could be a chance to break the record of Ric Flair. Since he has been the greatest franchise player in the history of the WWE, many thought Vince McMahon would let it happen, someday.
But the interesting part of this planning would be that Cena himself is not willing to surpass the milestone and set a new one.
According to the reports of Tom Colohue, John Cena is not in favor of achieving or rather breaking Ric Flair’s record of 16 World Championship reigns. As of now, Cena & Flair are both tied at 16 World Title reigns, each in the WWE’s record books. If the recent report is any indication then, these statistics may just continue to remain in the same way.
The source further added that John Cena is now pushing for storylines that do not have to benefit himself. Rather he wants to book himself in storylines that push the younger talent.
We should revisit Cena’s involvement on the Road to Royal Rumble 2019, on this note. He lost a number one contenders match for the Universal Championship and then raised Finn Balor’s arm who was victorious.
He also took part in an injury angle which was done to pull him out of the Royal Rumble 2019 match. Drew McIntyre was given credit for injuring the Cenation Leader (part of the storyline).
Colohue added that John Cena has a tremendous amount of respect for The Nature Boy, Ric Flair. So he won’t be gunning for another world title reign, at all,
“There’s so much respect. They look at each other and see the generational talent, right? Sometimes records or streaks should be broken. Ric’s all for it. John isn’t. He doesn’t want it.”
