John Cena spoke with the Extra TV show’s Renee Bargh and said he has no plans to leave WWE. “I don’t plan on leaving the WWE ever,” Cena said. “They’re in 180 countries, they have 650 million homes they reach each week, they have over half a billion social followers… why in the name of whatever we believe in would I shut that off? They have such a powerful voice, such an excited fan base, and I actually love doing it.”
Cena also spoke about his surprise appearance on Raw. “I flew all through the day and night just to show up on ‘Monday Night Raw’ for a minute and a half last night and I loved it — I loved every second of it.”
Cena did express interest in joining Kelly Rippa on the “Live With Kelly!” daytime show. “I would absolutely take it —I would take it in a heartbeat,” he said. “I would be the first guy to be able to host in the morning and go fight at night.” Read more at ExtraTV.com.
Powell’s POV: You have to love the way Cena immediately works in the lines about WWE’s reach. It’s just another reminder of why Vince McMahon has stuck with him as the top guy for so long. Cena would be a good fit on the “Live” talkshow as Michael Strahan’s replacement. Cena should be popping up in a lot of mainstream interviews this week given that he will be hosting the ESPY Awards tomorrow night.
