“When do I walk away? And when do I walk away with essentially a sense of mental and physical sanity? And I’m right at that precipice.”
Cena stated that he feels great and is in the best shape of his life as it’s not a situation where he couldn’t continue but thinks this point on he runs the risk of tipping that balance the wrong way.
He continued, “I will never walk away from WWE. That’s the great thing about WWE, you can perform in any capacity, and, as long as I’ve made a promise in the in-ring aspect of things, as long as I can keep up with the current product, I can perform.”
Cena brought up his ability to pursue an acting career while maintaining a WWE presence and that it brings him the best of both worlds. He added that he can be invited back to the company and do it in a super special way, which is the way that he thinks it should be.
“If I didn’t have these opportunities, I still would be taking, actively taking, time off,” Cena said. “My body just can’t handle the schedule anymore.”
