The Rock: "I'll Kick John Cena's Ass"
EXCLUSIVE! Star reckons he's a dead cert at Wrestlemania...
Friday, April 5, 2013 - 15:37
Ahead of this Sunday’s bout we caught up with the pair to find out how they’re feeling.
The Rock said he’d been concentrating hard on his training: “I was in London shooting Fast And Furious 6, I was in New Orleans shooting G.I. Joe, I’ve been to a lot of different locations where I’ve had to put a ring up and had guys fly in and train as I’ve continued training for this one particular night.
“I’ve been working my ass off for this. Diet, conditioning and 8 months training cap in the ring.”
John Cena told us what it meant for him to be part of Wrestlemania: “It’s really a reward for all your hard work, “ he said, “It’s the biggest of all of our stories. It’s the best the company has to offer. Wrestlemania is our highest accolade.”
The Rock echoed the sentiment that it was an opportunity to give back, while cheekily adding that he was quietly confident about the outcome.
“Personally what it means to me is an opportunity. And not an opportunity to kick John Cena’s ass, which I will, we all know it goes without saying.
“But honestly it’s just an opportunity to give back to a business that I grew up in. A business that gave me a platform to entertain and provided me an opportunity to go after my dreams.
