    John Cena wants to retire from WWE when the time is right

    The 42-year-old wrestler-turned-Hollywood superstar admitted the company doesn't need him "from a financial standpoint" anymore, and explained his age and acting career has made him reflect on his in-ring future


    He told The Wrap: "I am not saying, 'I'm doing this and leaving you guys behind.' I'm having a talk with the man in the mirror and saying I might be a step slower and I am not sure it is right for me to go on.

    "You always want to walk away at the right time and never want the courtesy clap from the audience... I am not sick of it, I am just trying to have that realistic conversation that not many people in sports or entertainment -- or sports-entertainment -- have, they want to hold on to that flame as long as they can.

    "I would much rather leave a lasting impression for what I did then try to milk the system for selfish gain."

    The 'Bumblebee' actor - who will also be the new host of Nickelodeon show 'Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? - is exploring other options away from WWE, and he conceded that a comeback is not guaranteed.

    He said: "That literally depends on the immediate future. There's a few opportunities that have been set in front of me.

    "If they work out -- and I hope they work out -- they'll be wonderful challenges in life and for me to grow as a person, so I'll more than likely take them. It doesn't mean that my heart doesn't lie with WWE."

    Cena was last seen on-screen at 'WrestleMania 35' when he had a surprise confrontation with WWE superstar Elias, but he hasn't actually wrestled since a rare appearance on 'Monday Night Raw' in January.
