John Cena addresses his status with WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/13/2019 at 05:58 PM
In a interview with TheWrap.com, John Cena addressed his status with WWE and helping younger talent:
The WWE does not need me. I need it and I love it, and I love every single moment Im associated with it, Cena said. But I felt it the first time this year at WrestleMania: I took a step back and looked at everything and (realized) it is such a powerful machine.
Id go down to the Performance Center often and speak to the students. I live in Tampa, which is close to Orlando. I am not saying Im doing this and leaving you guys behind. Im having a talk with the man in the mirror and saying I might be a step slower and I am not sure it is right for me to go on. You always want to walk away at the right time and never want the courtesy clap from the audience.
I am not sick of it, I am just trying to have that realistic conversation that not many people in sports or entertainment or sports-entertainment have, they want to hold on to that flame as long as they can, Cena said. I would much rather leave a lasting impression for what I did then try to milk the system for selfish gain.
