6. 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 an 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.”
