John Cena discusses future in WWE post SummerSlam. The Cenation Leader is scheduled to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.
John Cena made his long awaited WWE return at Money in the Bank. The 16-time World Champion had but one goal in mind; another world title reign. Doing so will put him past Ric Flair’s record 16 reigns. Cena chose to go after familiar opponent Roman Reigns for his Universal Championship, a title he has never held before.
Cena’s current run has seen him work full-time. He has appeared on both RAW and SmackDown while also working dark matches. Many however, have wondered how long will this last and if he will be on his way back to Hollywood after his fight with Reigns at SummerSlam.
John Cena discusses future in WWE post SummerSlam
John Cena recently spoke with Jeff Conway of Forbes to promote The Suicide Squad. He explained the reason behind why he chose to go to Hollywood and how their insurance companies prevent him from working matches.
“I didn’t want to really leave in the first place but I was faced with a bold choice and that bold choice is try your hand at another way of entertaining people through movies and television but if you take that risk, then you can’t be on the WWE in a full capacity.
“I could speak maybe or I could be an announcer but you can’t participate. You can’t have matches because the insurance companies bound you to the production. That’s very fair terms.
I’ve been filming movies a lot and that’s why I’ve been away. This is the first time I got a break. I have this block of time, so instead of taking a deep breath and kind of letting it all sink in, I wanted to go home and see my family in WWE, so back to the ring I go!”
When inquired about his WWE future, Cena refused to give a direct answer. Although he did hint that this may not be his final run with the promotion.
“Man, never say never about the WWE. Like I said, I had a month to myself and here I am back in a ring. So maybe if I get another month to catch my breath, I’ll hopefully make another visit back. I’m going to have to defend that championship that I win from Roman somehow (winks)!”
