We know John Cena coming back to wrestling full time is likely never to happen. His Hollywood career has taken off like such a rocket that it wouldn’t make sense for him to travel 300 days per year on the road with WWE.
But, could coaching the up-and-coming talents in WWE be in the cards?
Cena has said he sees himself as a WWE lifer. As long as they have a role for him, he wants to contribute. Perhaps a coaching gig at WWE PC might be the right fit.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Cena discussed what his WWE future might look like. “I’m not sure what my role is, but I know WWE is my family and, as long as they’ll have me, I’ll never leave,” he said.
If asked, Cena explained he would be open to coaching at WWE’s Performance Center. “I’ll go coach in Orlando. It would be so shameful for that experience and performance wisdom to go to no one.”
And, it makes perfect sense.
Cena Has a Lot to Give Back
While former greats like Shawn Michaels are sharing their wisdom in NXT these days, there may be few performers who understand the trials that come with being WWE’s biggest attraction. Over the last decade, Cena has been the company’s biggest star, done more Make-A-Wish moments than anyone and given back to the business more than arguably any other Superstar. These are lessons the company would surely love to pass down to future generations of stars.
WWE, and Cena, don’t really think there will ever be one person who becomes as big a star as Cena did, but that doesn’t mean he can’t share what he’s learned.
Until that happens, the next time we may see Cena is as a cast member for the new Fast & Furious 9 film. He recently signed on to star in the franchise alongside Vin Diesel.
