John Cena opens up on how he feels about WWE thriving without him. Wrestlemania 37 was the first Wrestlemania without him since Wrestlemania 20.
You may hate him or like him but to many John Cena is synonymous with WWE. The face that runs the place was more than just a moniker for the 16-time World Champion. He was the heart and soul of the promotion for much of the 2000’s and 2010’s.
Over the last few years Cena has slowly transitioned into a part timer. He has been pursuing a career in Hollywood but despite his busy schedule he has managed to squeeze in a Wrestlemania appearance. Although, this year he missed the event due to a scheduling conflict with the filiming of HBO’s “Peacemaker” series.
This was his first absence from the show since his maiden appearance at Wrestlemania 20!
Wrestlemania 37 performed very well even without Cena on the card and the man himself is thrilled for the WWE and pleased with his transtion out of it.

During a conversation with Bleacher Report, John Cena explained that every wrestler had a window and his goal was to leave the WWE better than when he found it.
“We all have a window and I love listening to ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin talk about his window. My goal when I stepped foot in WWE was to leave it better than I found it, and it’s really great to be able to see an event. I almost had the best transition you can possibly have.”
Cena added that it was reassuring to see the WWE thrive without him and that his part with them had come to an end.
“I want to be where I am and doing what I am, that’s why I made that choice [at WrestleMania 34]. I think it’s really special, and we all think they’re never going to go on without us. That’s not true. It’s more reassuring to me to not only see that WWE has a life after me, which is inevitable for sure, but that the life is thriving. It’s called WrestleMania, not CenaMania, you know? I’ve been a part [of it], and that part is over.”
Cena has been promoting he reboot of Wipeout. He will host the show alongside comedian Nicole Byer.
