We reported earlier in the week that Vince McMahon thought John Cena was hilarious in his role in the movie “Trainwreck.”

Speaking of which, John continues to shop a reality show and is taking a lot of auditions right now for movie roles. Cena continues to posture in media appearances that WWE will always be his main priority but Vince realizes how quickly that can change if Cena continues to gain traction in Hollywood (e.g. The Rock).

Cena isn’t in a rush to get out of the ring, it’s more his team trying to be aggressive about creating other opportunities. Cena has seen how much leverage Brock Lesnar had when choosing between WWE and UFC and could be looking for a reduced schedule in the next couple of years. If he wants to have the same leverage, he’ll need to create it with outside opportunities such as his role in the non-WWE related “Trainwreck” film.

As for the immediate future, the Cena vs. Hulk Hogan match for Wrestlemania 32 is officially out the window and opens up new possibilities for Cena at WWE's show of the year.
