The Rock didn’t like Cena’s response to his comeback
The Great One did an interview where he talked about John Cena’s response to a question about him.
“I was gone, and John Cena had done a series of interviews, radio interviews, and I just felt right, and someone referenced me and said, ‘hey, will Rock come back? never ‘, and he said:’ too sure ‘.
“I just didn’t like the way he said it and it stuck with me. Years later when I returned I spoke to Vince McMahon and we thought what would happen if we took this and created this sort of thing. It’s perfect. “H / t TalkSport
John Cena opened up about The Rock’s Hollywood career
In 2008, John Cena gave an interview to The Sun and took some pictures of The Rock’s Hollywood career.
He was asked what he thinks of Johnson, and Cena’s opinion was that The Rock wasn’t serious about wrestling.
“That’s my take on The Rock, and he’s a really nice guy. I have met him; he’s a fantastic human being. Which pisses me off a bit, and I guess that’s my fault, my Achilles heel, I hear it every day with young talent, with midcard talent, with people who aspire to be successful in this job; I hear “I’ve wanted to do this all my life.”
“Rock falls into this category. He, at one point, loved wrestling and wanted to do it all his life. Explain to me why he can’t come back for a 15th anniversary show or why he can’t make an appearance at Wrestlemania. Simply put, it’s because he wants to be an actor. There is nothing wrong with it, there is nothing wrong with it.
Cena wanted The Rock to speak to the public
John Cena felt that Dwayne Johnson had a following major fan in the wrestling industry. Therefore, he should return to the ring from time to time to address his fans.
“He’s a very good actor, he’s been very successful, he’s done very well for himself and for his association.g with sports entertainment doesn’t do much for his acting career. It only helps the sports entertainment audience so I understand why it is not coming back.
“Don’t fuck me and tell me you like it when you’re just doing this to do something else.” It’s the only thing that really pisses me off.
I wish he’d introduced himself, just say “Hi” and go, that’s all he needs to do. Do the eyebrow once and get out of town. It’s something that sweats me. Fight H / t 101
