John Cena: WWE Is Aware Of Its Schedule, Talent Can Take As Much Time Off As They Want

The WWE schedule is unlike any other in sports. There is no offseason, there is at least one live television show a week for each brand and there are the weekend live events. On top of just wrestling three to four times a week, there's the travel, the media work, the training, and everything else that comes with being a WWE Superstar.

John Cena dealt with the schedule for well over a decade, and speaking on WWE After The Bell, he discussed how WWE's mindset has changed, but how the wrestler's mindset remains the same.

"People harp about the schedule of WWE. The WWE is more aware of its schedule and asks of talent than ever before. Talent can take as much time off as they want. But there's the intrinsic battle in us of like, 'I don't want to lose relevancy. I would like to make a good living out of this.' So, it's the push-pull. When people get into a place where they complain about the schedule and the grind, just don't do it. I can never remember a distinctive bad day at work. I can remember bad matches, getting booed, missing my mark, not telling a good story, but I honestly can't remember a bad day at work. I will only sign up for stuff that I enjoy," he said.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Cena explained what keeps bringing him back to WWE despite all of his accomplishments. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
