John Cena Discusses WWE’s Old Days, Tonight’s Main Event with The Rock and More

– WrestleMania 28 headliner John Cena spoke with Tim Baines of The Toronto Sun this weekend. Here are some highlights:

Tonight’s main event:
“Often times, when you get a generational clash, one member of the generation is past his prime. Rock is in the best shape of his life. I’m certainly the strongest I’ve ever been. We’re both ready to go. It’s not like you’re getting an old version of something and a current version of something. You’re getting two current versions of something.”

WWE’s “old days”:
“I honestly like it back then better. Regardless of the creative literature, there is no substitute for pure emotions. That’s why I go out there by the seat of my pants, not afraid to look like an idiot. Under all that, very few people remember the exact words you say, but man, if you’re excited or pissed off, they remember that stuff.”

Passing on movies:
“I’ve had to pass on a lot of stuff. I don’t want to be an actor, I want to be a WWE champion and I want to be the best that I can be. If a part comes up and I have to make a choice between that and wresting, 10 out of 10 times I stay here.”

    I feel that John Cena is going to be in pro wrestling for a very long time. He really not a good actor have not watch 1 of his movies. Why because it just looks bad. John Cena is just going to have to stick with wrestling.

    Yeah, because that’s realistic.

    I wonder what he’ll say if James Cameron offered him $70 million for a movie
