That was Cena’s last title reign, as he has since become a part-time WWE star while focusing on his Hollywood career.
Flair recently noted that he doesn't think Cena will set the record but does think Randy Orton, who has 14 world title reigns, has a shot at it.
While speaking at Comic-Con Wales, Cena noted that he’s unsure if he can break the record.
“Well, that’s a very difficult question. Like I said, I know I’m not done in the ring. I am realistic with where I’m at in my life. I’m 45, and I can tell you from being a 16-time champion, it is very tough to win. The top of that mountain is a young man’s game. So I’m not done in the ring. but I’m not certain that that’s in the cards. We’ll see. Stories yet to be told because if I’m in the ring, I got a chance. I am just saying I’ve been there, so kudos to the young guys doing it.”
Cena also commented on his status for WWE Clash at the Castle next month at this appearance.
