TMZ Sports recently caught up with John Cena to congratulate him on his upcoming role in Fast and Furious 9. Cena also shared his thoughts on whether or not Undertaker and Goldberg should retire.
“I think an individual’s career is up to the individual,” Cena said when asked if Taker and Goldberg should retire. “I think that’s pretty much the way I can describe that. I’ve been having the same conversation with myself and I’m only 42. It’s something we’ve got to address each day. That’s individually specific and when those people are ready to stop, they’ll stop.”

Hour one: 2.31 million
Hour two: 2.56 million
Hour three: 2.35 million

The WWE broke the news via Twitter that The Undertaker will be returning to RAW next week.
Wrestling legend Mick Foley was recently on the Pro Wrestling show podcast. Foley revealed that for the right price he would be open to working a second Hell in the Cell match with Undertaker. Over two decades have passed since the first iconic match that is widely considered to be one of the most violent in the history of the WWE.
“If they wanted a rematch of the Cell badly enough and willing to pay for it, they’d probably get it. Working slower than I did 21 years ago, but I’d be out there.”
The odds that this match ever happens are slim, but if the money is right Foley seems to be open to it. For more exerpts from Foley’s interview check out INQUISTR’s recap.
