When WWE Superstars reach a certain age, it is understandable that they become keen to look for other occupations, given the toll working in the industry has taken on them physically for so many years.
For one of the biggest names in the company, this fact has proved true as it has been reported that John Cena is looking to produce is own television shows following his tenure as a WWE Superstar. Having spent the past 12 years on one of television's biggest successes, it appears Cena is ready to experience what life is like behind the camera.
According to Variety, the WWE legend has paired up with the producer of 'Pawn Stars', Leftfield Pictures to create an unscripted series that follows the lives of unknown individuals from all walks of life who have compelling stories to tell.
Cena told Variety: "For someone like me that’s surrounded by so many interesting characters, you know when you brush up against someone who can hold a room."
He added: "There are so many people out there who can hold someone’s attention.”
Cena is keen to promote talent
It is interesting to know that Cena is so keen on promoting the talent which lies with unscripted television, having been part of a scripted business for so long.
Explaining this, he said: "There's a lot more opportunity in reality [and chances] to package lives the way they already are."
The partnership apparently already have several ideas in the works but are not ready to reveal the concepts of them at present.
The current biggest star in WWE did not give much away with regard to the planned projects, but the success he has had in WWE will surely be echoed in any other television works he carries out.
Opportunities to bear in mind
Despite the programmes Cena plans to create with Leftfield being produced independently outside of his contract with WWE, the opportunity for the industry to link up with the shows is something which is still bared in mind.
Cena will not be the first WWE Superstar to have turned there hand to producing television shows following a strong career in WWE.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson started producing television shows two years ago, which began with the reality series "The Hero".
