John Cena

Khal of Complex.com is featuring an interview with WWE star John Cena where he talks about returning to WWE television recently as a free agent, why he’s aware his days are numbered turning 40 recently and why he returns following movie and TV projects.

On returning to WWE as a free agent in earlier this month:

“The reason that I wanted to be a free agent and the reason they kind of granted my request is because I don’t know if I’ll be available for Smackdown specific only or Raw specific only, and I also know that my days are numbered. I just turned 40 in April and we have so many young and talented performers, I don’t know how many years I have left. So in the time I have left, I’m gonna do what I can to dedicate to this company I just want to be able to do it the most time that I possibly can.”

Why he returns to WWE TV following any kind of outside project:

“When you’re a fan, you stay very close to all the programming and all the broadcasts, there’s no dipping around the fact that I haven’t been on the program in a while because I’ve been doing other stuff. I haven’t danced around it, I explained that the reason I cannot be on the program is because the movie folks, their insurance doesn’t allow you to. That’s a dealbreaker, it’s not negotiable. But instead of laying low for a few months before I start another project, the second that I wrapped, I scurried on a plane and got right back into the WWE fold. I guess that’s what I mean by all-timer. I think it’s imperative to be home with what I call my family and when I have any time available I will bring it into a WWE ring. I will work nonstop. I won’t just [say], “okay I’ve made it out of the WWE,” which is what a lot of folks aspire to do they want to go onto something bigger and better when I think the WWE is the biggest and the best.”

  1. ok so im going to say it before someone else does. this roughly translates as “I dont want to wrestle guys on the roster Ive wrestled before only the new guys I can bury”? lol

  2. Not whatsoever – I’m absolutely not a fan of Cena (never have been) but it came across the opposite way to me.

  3. He’s on good terms with Vince, H, and Steph, so if he plays his cards right, he could be around until Wrestlemania 50, enjoying a late career path similar to what the Undertaker did. He only would have to show up a few times a year, and would probably sell tickets.

  4. his days aren’t numbered just his baby face gimmick is. if they would just turn him into a serious heel that would revive his wrestling career. i mean it worked wonders for hogan after being a face for many yeard and it could do the same for cena. i loved the old cena heel, but it’s been soo long since he was a heel that a lot of new generation wrestling fans were either too young to remember it or weren’t even born yet. so seeing a heel cena would be something refreshing to see to the new generation of wrestling fans.

  5. Let me rephrase…
    Cena said, and I quote “I don’t know how many years I have left. So in the time I have left, I’m gonna do what I can to bury all the new guys who is thinking of even trying to replace me as much as I possibly can.”

  6. Lol…Cena will be dead and gone and folks will still be complaining that he buries everyone. According to http://heavy.com/sports/2017/04/john-cena-win-loss-record-match-statistics-wins-loses-how-often-does-matches/ he’s only won about 59% of his matches. In fact, according to Profightdb.com Cena isn’t even in the top 10 of wrestlers with the highest win percentage. Asuka, Warrior, Mil Mascaras are the top 3. Mojo Rawley is ahead of Cena percentage wise. Also, Cena has had 1326 matches as of the last update to profightdb. Rawley, over 300. Goldberg, who is 6th on the list 298. Get over it. Cena means money, WWE is a business.
