WWE’s superstar John Cena is reportedly no longer its highest paid wrestler. After being away from the wrestling scene for some time, he has addressed the rumors about him returning and even retiring.
Brock Lesnar Nabs Top Salary From John Cena
Forbes has reported that John Cena is no longer WWE’s highest-earning wrestler. Brock Lesnar reportedly took the top spot after it was revealed that he's the biggest paid wrestler in 2016. Lesnar recently returned to the WWE Scene but he clearly made big bucks with it.
The Undertaker, who recently announced his official retirement, came in as the eighth highest paid wrestler in WWE after competing last year. Cena most likely earned less from his wrestling career because of his injury and his noticeably blooming acting career. His recurring hiatus started in January 2016 when he underwent a surgery for his shoulder injury, forcing him to take a break.
John Cena Retiring Or Returning?
The last time fans saw John Cena was in the recent WrestleMania 33 and now he is busy focusing on another field of entertainment. Cena is currently promoting “The Wall” and he has also currently filming for “Daddy’s Home 2” and “Ferdinand”. Despite the wrestler’s schedule, WWE is reportedly keen on bringing him back to ease the declining show ratings of “SmackDown” and even hopefully raise it.
Cena may have stopped wrestling for a while but he revealed that he will always be involved with WWE. He admitted that the wrestling entertainment scene is a business designed for the young ones so they can deliver the best performance for fans. He added that he considers WWE as his home and if they plan on letting him go because they don’t need him anymore especially now that he's 40, they have to tell them. WWE is such a big part of Cena’s life that he had set his heart on proposing to Nikki Bella in the ring so he could share that moment with his WWE family.
