John Cena is a part time superstar, and that’s not exactly a groundbreaking statement to make. The 16-time world champion has made it known that he is dedicating a lot of his time to the world of Hollywood, and who can blame him for that?
He’s given his life to professional wrestling, and now, fans should see it as a privilege whenever he decides to return. He’ll almost certainly continue to come back for big time matches, but at this moment in time, those matches don’t really exist for him.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Cena spoke openly about his future and discussed some directions that he could go in with the company.
“I’m not sure what my role is, but I know WWE is my family and, as long as they’ll have me, I’ll never leave. Heck, I’ll go coach in Orlando [at the WWE Performance Center]. It would be so shameful for that experience and performance wisdom to go to no one. Whether I had the opportunity to do Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? Or Fast and the Furious, or if I had none of that going on and I just had idle time, I would be having the same conversation with myself. I need to define what my new role is. That’s the conversation I’m having with myself at 42 after performing for 16 years straight.”John Cena on his future with WWE
While it may not have been the most convincing of statements, it’s certainly exciting to consider the possibility of Cena passing on some of his knowledge to the superstars of tomorrow.
