John Cena was recently interviewed by Complex to discuss his "free agent" status in WWE and talk about how his age is catching up with him and that his wrestling days are waning down.

First, he talked about the whole "free agent" thing and how many days he has left:

“The reason that I wanted to be a free agent and the reason they kind of granted my request is because I don’t know if I’ll be available for Smackdown specific only or Raw specific only, and I also know that my days are numbered. I just turned 40 in April and we have so many young and talented performers, I don’t know how many years I have left. So in the time I have left, I’m gonna do what I can to dedicate to this company I just want to be able to do it the most time that I possibly can.”

He also briefly talked about his marriage to Nikki Bella:

“The speed of everything is directly dependent on Nicole. I’m one of those guys where it took me five years to get down on one knee, so I’m ready to go, but I also know there’s a lot into planning that day and since it’s taken so long, it should be absolutely everything that both of us want. We are both super, super busy and it just has to be right. I really, really want to say I hope it’s gonna be next year sometime, but also I want to do it when it’s right for Nicole and she can get the most out of it as well.”
