John Cena is one of the most successful wrestlers of all time, and throughout the course of his career he’s managed to win the WWE World Championship 16 times. Cena’s had a long run at the top, and although his wrestling career isn’t over, he’s gradually losing his grip on the top spot as he takes more and more time away from WWE.

John has been focused on his career in Hollywood, but he’s said several times that he has no intentions of leaving WWE. However, during a recent appearance on Variety’s Playback podcast, he said that if WWE officials were to tell him they don’t need him anymore, he would say “thank you” and then walk away from the company (via Wrestling Inc).

“They would have to tell me that they don’t need me anymore. And trust me, after 15 years of service, if they tell me that, I walk away with a stern handshake, a genuine smile, and a heartfelt ‘thank you’ because I’ve overstayed my welcome in some aspects. This is a dream ride for me, but it’s not like I’m getting into the other gig to leave the other one behind. WWE is legit my home. I consider them my family. I have such a close connection with all the people that are responsible for the brand.” Cena said, “but until they say that, I’d like to think that I can contribute in some capacity.”

John Cena has accomplished just about everything there is to accomplish in WWE, and he always says that his greatest match is his next one. The 16 time WWE World Champion may not have one match locked down as his greatest, but he does have a favorite moment from his wrestling career.

“The answer to my greatest match question is always the same. It’s my next one because that means I can continue doing what I love. My favorite moment is obviously when Nicole said she would marry me in front of 75,000 [people] at the Citrus Bowl.”
