John Cena is amongst the greatest wrestlers to step foot in the WWE ring. The Cenation leader took up the monumental task of carrying the company on his strong shoulders at a time when The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin were leaving WWE. For 17 years, John became the franchise player of WWE and whether you chanted "Let's Go, Cena!" or "Cena Sucks!" you could bet that the wrestler got the biggest reaction of the night! Now, taking a step back at the age of 42, Cena is instead focusing on his Hollywood career, which seems to be going in all the right directions.

Not only has the wrestler joined the Fast & Furious 9 family, but he is also a part of the star-studded cast of James Gunn's Suicide Squad 2. Given his growing trajectory in Hollywood, it comes as no surprise that John has limited his WWE time to just several appearances in a year. But, it's not just his Hollywood career, it's also Cena's body that can't handle the rigorous WWE schedule anymore. In an interview with the Today show, John got candid about WWE and how he'll never walk away from the company. According to the wrestler, as long as he can keep up with the current product, he will perform.

"The opportunities that I've been awarded keep me from being in the ring and I actually think that's good because it makes any time that I'm invited back to WWE super, super special. And that's the way it should be," Mr. Never Give Up confessed to Today while adding, "If I didn't have these opportunities, I still would be taking, actively taking, time off. My body just can't handle the schedule anymore."

It was when John turned 40 that he realised that even though he loves wrestling he needs to reduce the straining 250 performances a year to 100 and then from 100, it shifted to 50 times but it had to be done well. "And now it's like, 'Hey, you really have to prepare to get ready to perform and then really recover after a performance,'" Cena concluded.
