After watching John Cena's exit from No Mercy, where he spent several minutes just looking around the arena before leaving after his defeat at the hands of Roman Reigns, WWE fans could be forgiven if they believed this was a true passing of the torch and Cena's defacto retirement match.
However, it's more complicated than that. In the video above, Cena says he's going to have to be more of a true part-timer now, movie star schedule or no. But that doesn't mean he's retiring for good just yet.
And in this new video from TMZ Sports, Cena makes it even more explicit. When he's asked if he's going to retire any time soon, he responds: "No, never." And why not? Because the WWE means too much to him. "They're family."
He also says he doesn't want to get involved in politics like fellow future hall of famer Kane, because "there's too much politics." Which, honestly, can't be argued with.
Nikki Bella is with him while he's being interviewed and when she's asked if she's been teaching John any of the dance moves she's been learning on Dancing With The Stars, she says "Of course."
To which John says "That's a lie."
