John Cena stated in an interview with NBC’s Willie Geist that his body just can no longer handle the WWE schedule.
“I will never walk away from WWE. That’s the great thing about WWE, you can perform in any capacity, and, as long as I’ve made a promise in the in-ring aspect of things, as long as I can keep up with the current product, I can perform.”
“If I didn’t have these opportunities, I still would be taking, actively taking, time off,” Cena said. “My body just can’t handle the schedule anymore.”
