Positive news...

WWE legend, John Cena appeared on IMPAULSIVE this week, and Cena was open regarding the possibility of having another match.

News of Cena potentially retiring has been dominating headlines this week, and it was nice to hear Cena reflect on his career in his own words:

"I hope so. I am not officially done. I know that I'm close. I can feel it, especially seeing you out there doing incredible stuff. Our talent now, the product has become so crisp and so fast and so skilled. It is a different world and I love it and I still feel fluent, and I would like to say good goodbye when I still feel fluent. It's coming, like, to the point where you know at that moment in the sunset when it starts to go down. That's kind of where I'm at. I'm not done, but I need to decide when I am.”

Cena would also discuss the evolution of his iconic character:

"John Cena in the WWE's existence is quite easy for me to define. Superman. I don't mean like, I'm stronger than everybody, I can outrun a speeding train, or stronger than a train, or faster than a bullet, whatever. I mean, Superman acts with pure virtue. Superman has a moral code. Superman can be conflicted, but when he's conflicted, his North Star, his moral code, and his virtues, it affects the body language. It affects your delivery. You're like, 'I don't know when you're off script, when you're on script.' Neither do why because you just get out there and you feel the energy. Now over the years, there's been a difference in Superman. The Superman of 2012 where, man did they want CM Punk to win the championship because everybody was sick of me winning. They were sick of Superman, which is the forever problem with Superman. He's too good…”
“Now it's an older Superman who's looking in the mirror and saying, 'I was this. I'm not this anymore. What am I now? I'm trying to figure it out. I need your help.' 'Hey guys, I don't know how much time I have left', and I gauge their interest off of that. If they're like, 'Get the f**k out', I do know how much time I have left and it's now (he laughs), but it's fun to be able to play with that dynamic of having that run. Just like the evolution of the Doctor of Economics. It was an immediate shift into the rap guy and it was a slow climb into the virtuous Superman character that became the face of WWE. The person sitting before you is me. The person you see in WWE is more of me now than it ever has been in totality."

Cena last wrestled at the Crown Jewel event, where he was defeated by Solo Sikoa.
