New job? Here's what John Cena wants to work as outside the wrestling ring

14 July 2016 / 3 months 2 weeks ago

WWE Superstar John Cena wants to become the new co-host on 'Live With Kelly!' and thinks he'd bring a new energy to the show.

The 39-year-old wrestler has been a guest on Kelly Ripa's morning talk show and believes he could be the right man to fill Michael Strahan's seat following the former NFL player's decision to leave in May to join ABC's 'Good Morning America' full-time.

In an interview with 'Extra', he said: "I would absolutely take it, I would take it in a heartbeat ... I would be the first guy to be able to host in the morning and go fight at night."

Cena has been diversifying his career outside of the ring and has appeared in films such as 'Trainwreck', 'Sisters' 'Daddy's Home' and will be hosting the 2016 ESPY Awards becoming the first wrestler to ever do so.

However, the multi-time world champion is adamant he has no intention of following in the footsteps of his peers Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Dave Bautista and giving up grappling for Hollywood stardom.

Cena - who has been on WWE TV since 2002 - said: "I don't plan on leaving the WWE ever. 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."

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."
