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.”
