WWE has made plenty of history over the last couple of years. Some of the standout achievements of Vince McMahon’s pro wrestling company include SmackDown moving to a live format on Tuesdays, the record-breaking WrestleMania 33 and the most revenue ever generated in a single quarter. In the ring, WWE had just as many accomplishments, such as the first-ever Women’s Hell in a Cell match and the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank match, which have spearheaded the rejuvenation of women’s wrestling.
And with 2017 coming to a close, WWE is set to have more monumental moments this year and next, whether inside or outside of the ring. Here are five ways WWE will make history in the near future.
John Cena’s 17th World Title Reign
Although there is a debate about how many times Ric Flair actually held a World title, WWE officially recognizes 16 title reigns for “The Nature Boy,” a number matched by John Cena at the 2017 Royal Rumble.

Especially given the way Michael Cole hails John Cena as the greatest superstar in WWE history, the widespread expectation is that John Cena will soon win No. 17 to break Flair’s record of 16 time World title runs because time is running out for “The Champ” to do that. John Cena has recently been suggested he could be nearing retirement, which is why he now finds himself able to work on both brands and is presumably why he faced Roman Reigns at No Mercy rather than WrestleMania 34.
John Cena reportedly could be taking another lengthy hiatus following No Mercy in order to film Bumblebee although
He lost to Roman Reigns at No Mercy 2017 and his biggest movie role yet and the latest sign that he could soon move to Hollywood and prioritize acting over pro wrestling. WWE knows that John Cena’s pro wrestling career is nearing its end, and there’s no doubt that the company will utilize his 17th World title win, whenever that might take place, as a major marketing tool to appeal to viewers.
WWE will surely ask fans “Is this John Cena’s last chance?” in regards to John Cena’s next WWE title shot, a great way to draw in fans, who assuredly will tune in to see the company’s biggest draw since the Attitude Era as he approaches the end of his historic career. Not only will John Cena enter the record books when he surpasses Flair, but given that his days as a wrestler are numbers, he will do wonders for WWE when he pursues his record breaking title win, as he has a long track record of doing big business for the company.
