Cena also said he has made a pact with himself to gracefully walk away from WWE when he feels he can't hang with the younger talents anymore. Cena wouldn't say directly how close he is to retirement but talked about professional athletes winding down their careers.
"A lot of these athletes that are married to their sport think this is going to last forever," Cena stated. "Then they blow out an ACL, they look around when they're 35 or 36 and their career is coming to an end and they act like the income stream is going to continue."
Cena also noted that JBL, who is a FOX Business correspondent, played a big role in his success.
"He's one of the few people that as I was coming up and trying to make a name for myself, he actually believed in me," Cena said of JBL. "He'd say, 'the kid's got something,' and everyone else would say, 'no way.' And here we are years later."
