John Cena is known for connecting and getting through the hearts of people via his words and his personality. While every word Cena says carries huge significance and impact for the WWE Universe, sometimes, Cena just doesn’t say anything. Especially when it comes to uploading pictures on Instagram.

While one can see his beautiful personal and promotional messages on his X account, his Instagram posts make zero sense. Though fans have almost given up on deciphering his posts, one of his uploads has caught everyone’s attention. In fact, this is the first time when one of his Instagram posts could actually be pointing to a big feud.

John Cena recently uploaded a picture of Karrion Kross on his Instagram account. While the picture didn’t come with any caption, it did bring a lot of frenzy to the WWE Universe. The man in the picture, Karrion Kross recently appeared on Chris Van Vliet’s podcast and addressed the matter. Van Vliet questioned Kross about a video he posted where he was keeping an eye on Cena. He asked whether this pointed towards a potential Cena versus Kross feud.

Answering the question, Kross said, “I can’t say it’s not impossible so during the lockdowns fans were fantasy booking tons of stuff. Yeah, they started fantasy booking me versus John Cena which blew my mind. I was still in NXT. I was expecting maybe ideas and concepts like that would come in a later time.” The surprised wrestler didn’t think much about it and dismissed it as a whimsical fan movement. However, a new development completely stunned him.

Kross further said, “One day when I was on the main roster they were already saying they wanted to see that. Then I think one day John posted a picture of me on uh his Instagram with no caption, no context.” While this says that Karrion Kross is ready for a potential feud against Cena, there’s still no confirmation if it’s in the cards.

According to the 16-time WWE Champ’s bio, “Welcome to my Instagram. These images will be posted without explanation, for your interpretation. Enjoy.” Despite his very bio refusing to give any explanation, the wrestler is followed by over 20 million fans. Speaking further on the matter, Cena revealed that he never wanted an Instagram account. 

He said that he already interacted heavily with fans on X and Facebook and that he never felt the need for another social media profile. However, he also said that WWE asked him to mandatorily create a profile. John Cena agreed to it, but he said that he would post whatever he liked on the page.
