John Cena established himself as an icon in the history of WWE. He had a longer run at the top than Steve Austin and The Rock, two of the biggest stars in the history of the business. Recently, he opened up about his decision to work part-time.
In recent years, Cena has focused his time on his Hollywood career while working WWE part-time. He spoke about missing the lifestyle of a full-time WWE star during an interview with GQ.com.
Cena shared with the outlet that he misses being a WWE star every single day of his life. He added that his age was one of the reasons why he chose to go part-time. He added that he’s grateful to go as long as he did without sustaining any major injuries.
“I miss it every day. Every single day. But I’ll be 45 on April 23rd, and I was very fortunate to make it as long as I did with only a minor list of injuries. Nothing that has changed the trajectory of my long term health. I’m strong, flexible, and in really good shape externally, internally. I think now, being a full-time touring performer might start to hit that point of diminishing returns, and I have to be realistic when I look at that.”
Cena asserted that he’s “strong, flexible, and in really good shape externally, internally.” He noted that being a full-time performer now “might start to hit that point of diminishing returns.” He added, “I have to be realistic when I look at that.”
Cena came back for a short WWE stint last summer which led to a showdown at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event where he lost to Universal Champion Roman Reigns. He agreed to a limited amount of dates through SummerSlam before going back to full-time acting. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
