John Cena claims he may never retire from WWE despite his growing Hollywood career.
Cena is one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time having won a joint-record 16 world titles and beaten some of the all-time best like Shawn Michaels, Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle and more.
The Champ has been performing on a part-time basis with WWE ever since 2017 due to his advanced age of 42 and his busy acting schedule but he claims he may never retire because he sees Vince McMahon’s promotion as family.
The Leader of the Cenation also understands that he would never be able to experience success in other areas, such as music, philanthropy and Hollywood, without the wrestling giants.
Cena told Good Housekeeping: “WWE is my family, they’ll always be my family and none of any of this exists without them, and I will never forget that.
“I don’t think I’ll ever retire, because I don’t look at it like that.
“You don’t retire from your family.
“I will never, ever stop waving the WWE flag.
“I don’t think I’ll ever separate myself from them.”
Cena will have to retire from in-ring competition at some point but that doesn’t mean he can’t stay in the company in a non-wrestling capacity.
The ex-WWE Champion understands that he can no longer perform at the same level he did in his prime and admits he needs to take a backseat.
The former World Heavyweight Champion is adamant that the fans deserve to see the absolute best performers in action and that is why he refuses to take the spotlight away from younger wrestling stars.
Cena added: “As a 42-year-old, going to be 43 in April… I already know that I’m a little lighter, I’m a little slower, I’m not as strong, so all of the physical signs are like, ‘I’m here, I’m here, I’m here.’
“I can’t lie to myself and say those things aren’t happening. They are.
“And either I accommodate my performance, or just say, ‘Hey, it’s time to do something different.”http://feedproxy.google.com/”
Cena’s acting career is reaching new heights as he has taken part in various blockbuster hits, like the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, and is also set to appear on Fast & Furious 9 as well as DC Comics’ Suicide Squad sequel.
