WWE News: John Cena signs new TV deal outside the WWE
Recently, there were rumors that 15-time WWE Champion John Cena wants a lighter work schedule in the company as he wants to focus on other projects. It is not clear whether the rumor is legit or not, but Cena has been removed from several upcoming Live events.
To corroborate this, wrestlinginc.com reveals that Cena has recently signed a new development contract with Leftfield Entertainment, mainly for unscripted TV work and other online projects.
Earlier, Leftfield Entertainment produced American Grit on FOX , which was hosted by the leader of Cenation. Several new projects between Cena and Leftfield are already under process. There are possibilities that John Cena will serve as an executive producer for these under his Hard Nocks South production banner.
Cena has also made a statement on this:
"Whether I'm in the ring for WWE or on a TV or film set, I approach all of my work the same way – with focus, authenticity and total commitment. I'm eager to bring that same work ethic to the team at Leftfield, and to create new kinds of programming that can inspire and push people to be their best. I'm living proof of what you can accomplish when that happens."
The CEO of Leftfield Entertainment praised the initiative of Cena and remarked :
"There's nowhere you can go with John Cena without eliciting respect, pure joy and excitement from everyone he meets. Beyond his physical strength and presence, his humor, strength of character and genuine desire to give back always comes through. That's an inspiring place from which to create entertainment content, so we're extremely proud and happy to be in business with John."
