“Returning to WWE, it’s a brand new world. A new cast of characters, new direction with the company, new platforms, new environment. There is a challenge there. To challenge myself as a 44-year-old to go back, there is an intrinsic challenge here, there’s a set of circumstances. That’s a good challenge in many ways.”

“My body could tell me after this extended stay, ‘Dude, you’re done’ or it could tell me, ‘You’re so far from done it’s crazy.’ That’s another interesting conversation with myself. If I get physically, I’m slower, I’ve said openly to everyone that I will keep doing this until I feel I’m offending the customer. I will continually go out there and do what I can to contribute and add.”

John Cena refuses to be the Superstar whom WWE will ask to do whatever he can without pushing him. He understands that fans want to watch John Cena the way the WWE Universe knows him when they pay for a ticket. Therefore, he won’t back down from giving his 100% in the ring.

Additionally, John Cena does not want to waste his time at WWE working with slow storylines and feuds. He wants to constantly bring quality entertainment to the audience, till the day he can.

“I do not have much time left and if I want to give it like, ‘let’s commit to this thing and really go all in,’ that’s an honest choice where other stuff is going to have to take a backseat.”

When WWE asked him to come back, the company expected him to return for a few days. However, The Invisible Man wanted to return for all the dates, and work for two primary reasons.

“When WWE wants you to come back, I gave them myself, they asked me to come back for only a few dates and I said, ‘No, I want to do all these dates.’ To one, get back in front of an audience. Two, to help the brand get audiences back in the building.” H/t ID10T with Chris Hardwick
