13. John Cena Talks About Getting A Job Similar To Triple H’s In WWE After His In-Ring Career Is Over, On Leaving WWE One Day
During a recent appearance on the Playback podcast, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena talked about what he wants to do after his in-ring days in WWE are over, getting a job in WWE similar to Triple H’s & more. Below are the highlights:
On possibly getting a job in WWE similar to Triple H’s after his in-ring career is over:
“Yeah, people don’t understand it’s a business of creativity and I’m wearing a suit right now because I’m comfortable in a suit. Everyone’s like, ‘ah, dress casual.’ This is my casual. I don’t mind being in a suit. I have a more Vince McMahon style than I have a Triple H style, but you get to be creative. What Triple H has done with NXT is literally creating another functioning brand for the company. That is awesome! Like, I tell him all the time. I’m fascinated by the growth and development. It’s amazing to see them run two functional brands now we legit have a third that we can set up in a town for one of our big four pay-per-views and sell out five days in a row. That’s unheard of in the ticket-tearing business. That’s unheard of.”
On leaving WWE one day:
“They would have to tell me that they don’t need me anymore. And trust me, after 15 years of service, if they tell me that, I walk away with a stern handshake, a genuine smile, and a heartfelt ‘thank you’ because I’ve overstayed my welcome in some aspects. This is a dream ride for me, but it’s not like I’m getting into the other gig to leave the other one behind. WWE is legit my home.
I consider them my family. I have such a close connection with all the people that are responsible for the brand. But until they say that, I’d like to think that I can contribute in some capacity.”
