John Cena Indicates WWE Doesn't Need Him Anymore

John Cena Indicates WWE Doesn't Need Him Anymore

John Cena was recently interviewed by The Wrap in which he discussed the possibility of returning to semi-regular in-ring competition, WWE no longer needing him and WWE’s rough financial start to 2019.

Check out the highlights below:

Possibly returning to semi-regular in-ring competition: 

“That literally depends on the immediate future. There’s a few opportunities that have been set in front of me,” Cena said. “If they work out — and I hope they work out — they’ll be wonderful challenges in life and for me to grow as a person, so I’ll more than likely take them. It doesn’t mean that my heart doesn’t lie with WWE.

“I’ve often said that if I’m doing something like [‘Fifth Grader’] then it’s impossible to do something like that. I’m older now. I just turned 42, I watch WWE on a regular basis and the talent is getting faster and more precise.”

WWE no longer needing him:  

“I think I would have left the WWE high and dry, so to speak, [but] now they have so much talent and so many definable Superstars,” Cena said. “There was a time when I could genuinely say, from a financial standpoint, they needed me — that time is up.”

WWE’s rough financial start to 2019:

 “I only got a chance to be on television because Brock Lesnar left, Steve Austin left, Dwayne Johnson left, Mick Foley got hurt, Triple H got hurt, the Undertaker got hurt,” Cena said. “[McMahon’s] class of the Attitude Era changed and they had to rely on new people. In doing that, they took a tremendous financial hit up front, but in the longterm it ended up going strong for a decade and a half.

“[WWE is] certainly in a better place now than they were in let’s say 2003, and I know Vince will say on a quarterly call that he needs his stars, but he’s also aware that he’s developing them at a more rapid rate than he did when I started. So I think the future is tremendously bright for WWE.

“The WWE does not need me. I need it and I love it, and I love every single moment I’m associated with it. 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.”
