Over the last year or so, fans have been preparing themselves for a WWE without John Cena at the forefront on a weekly basis.
Injuries may have played a part previously, but it’s clear that he’s looking at opportunities outside of the company.
PREPARING FOR LIFE OUTSIDE WWE
You obviously can’t blame him for preparing for life outside of the ring; he can’t go on forever, and we’ve already seen some of the prospects on our TV’s or even on the big screen.

He was praised for his performance in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, and most recently he hosted American Grit. He'll also take time off after No Mercy to film the second season of the reality show.
Then there’s Total Bella’s he’s preparing for as well, so Cena is a busy man.
One criticism fans have had of 'big match John' is that regardless of how much he’s beaten down, he hits five moves and he’s back in the game as if nothing had happened giving him the name Super Cena.
It looks like Super Cena could become a reality now, as the 15-time World Champion is being eyed up for a Mark Millar superhero film.
As explained by WhatCulture, Millar has adapted numerous comic books to the big screen, including Kick-Ass, Wanted and Kingsman: The Secret Service.
The newest project is called Superior which has an interesting story of a 12-year-old boy with multiple sclerosis who is given a wish by an alien monkey.
The boy wishes to become Superior, a fictional hero similar to DC Comics’ Superman, and thus Superior is born, and it looks as if Cena could be the lead role.
Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to look like Cena in a superhero movie?
Millar took to Twitter to reveal his interest in signing him up for the lead, seemingly impressed with his performance in Trainwreck, with his comedic timing said to be impressive, and obviously, the look is just as important.
As you can see in Millar’s tweets, he’s saying he actually requested Cena for the lead, and now that he’s following the director on social media, perhaps this is the role that turns Cena into the next bona fide movie star to come from the WWE.
