John Cena explains why he refuses to work a full-time WWE schedule

Over the past year, WWE fans have hardly seen John Cena compete in the company as he transitions into a part-time superstar.

Gone now are the days which Cena was the face of the WWE and competing on every single house show and pay-per-view which the company puts on.

Roman Reigns has now taken over the role as the face of the company, meaning the 16-time world champion can now focus more on projects outside of the WWE, such as his acting career.

While he is able to wrestle though, there will always be the talk of Cena possibly returning to the WWE as a full-time performer.

However, the man himself has said he can't do a full-time schedule anymore because he has to think about his future and what's best for his overall health.

Cena said during an interview with Adam Glyn, via Rajah: "At full disclosure, I can't run the full demanding schedule at 41 years old that current WWE Superstars do.

"They go everyday, all the time and it is a young man's game. I'm old guys. I'm old. I'm 41 and performing 310 times a year isn't what's best for my overall health. I wanna be able to run the streets at 80 instead of hobbling around.

"I'm at a point in my life where I need to think long-term. That doesn't mean I'm leaving the WWE. I'll never leave the WWE, it's my home. But I have to think about long-term health and right now this is probably the best play for me."

John Cena says he's refusing to work full-time in WWE as he wants to preserve his body

Cena last competed for the WWE at Super Show-Down earlier this month in Australia, when tag-teamed with Bobby Lashley against Kevin Owens and Elias.

He'll be competing for the company again when he takes part in the WWE World Cup in Saudi Arabia next month on November 2 at Crown Jewel.

Other than that, it isn't clear how WWE will be using Cena moving forward. Then again, they're coping fine without him, so there's no need to rush him into a storyline.
