Although John Cena has transitioned into a relatively relaxed schedule, he is yet to be a full-fledged part timer. According to AllWrestlingnews, John Cena is unhappy with the Brock Lesnar-Goldberg situation and the fact that they are being paid big money for working a limited schedule.
The report stated that Cena believes he should be treated in the same manner by Vince McMahon.
According to the reports, Cena feels that his dedication towards the WWE is taken for granted by Vince McMahon. It should be noted that Cena is still by far the highest earner in the WWE, earning a whopping $9.5 million a year. Lesnar, on the other hand, receives $6 million. The numbers are likely to be much higher if you included the merchandise sales.
Lesnar’s contract is rumored to include 22 dates of Monday Night Raw a year apart from the 4 Pay-Per-View appearances. It should be noted that Lesnar wrestled in 5 PPVs in 2015 and 2014. Over the last couple of years, Lesnar has shown more willingness to work more dates that would have also meant paying him an extra fee.
It is easy to forget that Lesnar has only worked full-time for two years in the WWE. John Cena, on the other hand, has helped carry the company for about 11 years. So it is not unfair to say that he has earned a lighter schedule. Either which ways, when he is away from the WWE, Cena still has numerous projects piling up by the minute.
Cena currently has commitments in Hollywood, hosting award and tv shows among the rest. Many believe that his WWE career is winding up and that he will shift to a mainstream role like the Rock.

However, John Cena insists that he is here to stay. It will be interesting to see if WWE turns Cena into a part-time performer. Fans who previously rejected Cena have also started to warm up to him, perhaps because of his departure from the long-term main event picture and his willingness to put over upcoming talents.
