John Cena made his WWE debut in 2002 by accepting Kurt Angle’s open challenge. At the time, WWE products became stale after Steve Austin and The Rock transitioned into part-timers. Three years later, Cena became the face of the company and changed the WWE landscape in an unprecedented way.
The Cenation Leader inspired a lot of generations and he is one of the reasons why WWE became a global phenomenon. However, John Cena transitioned to Hollywood in 2019 and became one of its megastars. Cena sporadically competed on WWE television since 2019.
In an interview with Busted Open Radio, the 16-time World Champion stated that he can’t perform like he used to.
“I wish I was still there every day. My body can’t do it anymore and I don’t want to give the consumer a bad product. That’s another thing that I learned from those veterans at the time, guys like Eddie just would risk so much. and he’s like, I’m never gonna give the consumer a bad product. I don’t care how I feel. I don’t care how I feel physically. I don’t care what baggage I have mentally. When I’m on, they paid good money and I’m gonna go out there and give everything I have and sometimes find it when it’s not there. I’m at a point where everything I have in comparison to the bar that’s been set, like what I have is what you saw at WrestleMania 39. That’s what I feel confident that I can deliver and that’s really nice for here and there. That’s not every day in the WWE. That’s not every day in sports entertainment. Sports entertainment has raised the bar and I’m humble enough to say that’s awesome because you’re supposed to leave it better than you found it and the people are supposed to advance it.”H/T WrestlingNews.co
