John Cena is in no rush to return to WWE.
Tonight, John Cena begins his new venture as the host of "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" With Cena staying busy in Hollywood, many WWE fans have wondered when he'll return to the ring. Cena hears the WWE Universe and appreciates the support, but he continues to believe WWE is in a good place without him.
“[Taking other gigs] doesn’t mean that my heart doesn’t lie with WWE, I’ve often said that if I’m doing something like this then it’s impossible to do something like that,” Cena told The Wrap. “I’m older now, I just turned 42. I watch WWE on a regular basis and the talent is getting faster and more precise, and I’ve always been referred to as ‘unorthodox’ so I’m not exactly the most precise. They don’t need me, I am grateful for everyone who says ‘we miss you,’ and there was a time when I could genuinely say from a financial standpoint that they needed me, that time is up.”
Cena last appeared on WWE television at WrestleMania 35, surprising fans as the Doctor of Thuganomics.
Along with hosting "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?" Cena is set to make his debut in the "Fast & Furious" franchise in "Fast & Furious 9."
