16-time World Champion and one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time, John Cena is in the most exciting and important phase of his career.
Cena announced himself as a “free agent” in 2017 that allowed him to perform for both RAW and SmackDown Live. The announcement was made after looking into Cena’s age and turn to Hollywood.
Cena broke up with Nikki Bella this April ending their 6-year long relationship that created headlines for weeks in the celeb world. The buzz got louder after Bella called off their wedding that was scheduled to take place on May 5, 2018 in Mexico.
Nikki has publicly stated that a reconciliation with her ex-fiancé isn’t quite possible as she isn’t willing to sacrifice her career and ambitions for an engagement that requires one of them to give up their career.
This time, it was Cena who addressed fans hopes on a possible reconciliation.
Cena told ET:
“That’s information for me.”
“That’s a good question. I appreciate you asking. You’re probably worried about me. What does he do in his spare time?”
“I’m keeping busy, man. I’m keeping busy.
“That’s information I’m gonna keep with me.”
Ever since the breakup, The Champ has kept himself enormously busy with his acting career. No secret that the Leader of Cenation is following the footsteps of WWE Superstar-turned-Hollywood megastar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
At WWE Super Show-Down that took place in Australia on October 6, Cena teamed up with Bobby Lashley to defeat Kevin Owens and Elias in tag team action. Post-match, Cena hit the mic and gave a short speech that quickly raised speculations of him retiring from professional wrestling.
Addressing the issue, Cena told Wrestling Inc.:
“I feel the most healthy I’ve ever felt in my life, [But] at full disclosure, I can’t run the full demanding schedule at 41 years old that current WWE Superstars do. They go everyday, all the time and it is a young man’s game.”
“I’m 41 and performing 310 times a year isn’t what’s best for my overall health. I wanna be able to run the streets at 80 instead of hobbling around. I’m at a point in my life where I need to think long-term.”
“That doesn’t mean I’m leaving the WWE. I’ll never leave the WWE, it’s my home. But I have to think about long-term health and right now this is probably the best play for me.”
