Trainwreck Star John Cena Won't Take A Break From WWE To Make Movies
Trainwreck star John Cena has revealed he has no intention of leaving the bright lights of WWE for Hollywood.
Speaking to MTV UK last night at the New York premiere of the Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow comedy, the US champ said he hoped to carve out a different entertainment path than fellow WWE icon Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, balancing commitments to the squared circle and future film roles.
He said: “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.”
Paying tribute to his former Wrestlemania rival, John added: “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.”
