John Cena Says He’s Getting Too Old to Wrestle: ‘It’s a Young Man’s Game’

John Cena may be nearing his last suplex in life, because the WWE Superstar is worried his body won’t be able to physically endure a wrestling career for much longer.

The Cenation Leader was in NYC promoting his book, and rocking a shaggy hairdo, when he was asked about the rumors he may hang up his briefs. Cena straight up says, “Full disclosure, I can’t run at the full demanding schedule, at 41-years-old, that current WWE Superstars do,” adding that people will call him hypocritical, but, “I’m old.”

The star admits performing over 300 times a year isn’t the best for his overall health, and says, “I gotta think longterm.”

For what that longterm entails, just look at his head. Cena, who recently spent time in China filming a movie with Jackie Chan, is still sporting long locks compared to his usual style of high and tight. He revealed that although it’s harder to maintain, his career may require the shaggy hair to stick around.

Regardless of where he ends up, Cena says he will never 100% be done with the WWE, but at this point in his life health must come first.
