John Cena Talks About Respect For The Rock, Doing Movies & Wrestling For WWE At The Same Time

WWE United States Champion John Cena recently spoke with MTV UK to promote the new Trainwreck movie. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

Wanting to do wrestling and movies at the same time, unlike The Rock:

“My life is with WWE. And at 38 years old I tell everybody I feel as strong and as good as ever. I think you can check out Monday Night Raw and watch any US Open challenge and my actions speak for themselves. When opportunities like this come up, I’m going to do it for the same reason that Dwayne has done what he’s done. Him being such a success has just gotten more eyeballs on WWE and that’s my goal. So when opportunities like this come up, I’m going to go for it. But unlike Dwayne I won’t take a sabbatical to do so, I take nothing away from his accomplishments – he is the most successful WWE superstar ever.”

Respect for The Rock:

“A few years back I was just too ignorant to see his vision. It is amazing after beating somebody up, how much respect you have for them. But what he was doing was absolutely correct, for where he wanted to go – he’s there tenfold now. Hopefully I can ride a little bit on his wing.”
