“I’ll answer it like this: Every single day that I don’t have an outside obligation, I will fulfill any commitment that I have to WWE,” said WWE superstar John Cena, in an interview with ESPN earlier this week. “And I will attach this quote with it that every outside obligation I have is to expand the brand of WWE and there has never been a superstar to say that before.”
There have plenty of rumors in recent months about the future of the leader of the “CeNation” when it comes to his time with the company. It had been previously reported that he will be taking some time off in October to film the second season of his show “American Grit” on FOX.
Recently, he signed on to be the voice of “Ernie the Elephant,” in a new deal with “Wonderful Pistachios.” Earlier this year, he was also the host of the 2016 ESPY Awards.
From competing in the ring, to rapping, to acting, John Cena has done it all. But he never lets himself forget what it means to be the role model that he is to so many around the world.
“There is no off being John Cena, it’s always on,” Cena said. “In a way, I think that has helped me, because over the years I have been able to be humble. I have been able to be humiliated in front of the WWE universe in a good way. They have shared in my successes and my failures and it went from 12 years ago this kid trying to make it in the WWE using hip-hop as a vehicle trying to establish an identity to over a decade and a half later everybody just relating to the human being that just is John Cena.”
What does the future hold for the 15-time world champion? “Right now the roster is loaded with characters,” Cena said. “It demands that you perform at your best every single night. I don’t believe in shortchanging the consumer. I believe in giving the WWE universe what they want and the day I can’t do that is the day I move aside.”
