John Cena On WWE: ‘They Don’t Need Me’


WWE legend John Cena has been spending most of his time away from the WWE as he becomes a legitimate Hollywood actor and author.

As he transitions into his new career, Cena is happy to see the WWE going strong without him.

Cena recently took part in an interview with The Wrap in promotion of, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?. When asked if he still keeps up with the current WWE product, Cena said:

“It doesn’t mean that my heart doesn’t lie with WWE, I’ve often said that if I’m doing something like this then it’s impossible to do something like that,” Cena said. “I’m older now, I just turned 42. I watch WWE on a regular basis and the talent is getting faster and more precise, and I’ve always been referred to as ‘unorthodox’ so I’m not exactly the most precise.”

“They don’t need me,” he said. “I am grateful for everyone who says ‘we miss you,’ and there was a time when I could genuinely say from a financial standpoint that they (WWE) needed me; that time is up.”

At WWE Royal Rumble 2017, John Cena tied Ric Flair’s long-standing record when he won his 16th world championship after defeating AJ Styles. Do you think we’ll see Cena come back and break the record, or are his WWE days done? Let us know in the comments.
