John Cena Talks 20 Years from Now, Going Into WWE’s Hall of Fame and More

– John Cena spoke with The LA Times this week to promote WrestleMania 28. Here are some highlights:

Q: If you could transport any wrestler from history, in the prime of his career, to face you at next year’s WrestleMania, who would it be and why?

A: Well, it would be hard to top Dwayne this year, but I’d have to say Stone Cold Steve Austin. … He is one of those guys who had a superhuman level of popularity, and I think we would match up well.

Q: When you get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day, who is the first person you thank?

A: The idiots who voted for me! No, I’d have to thank Vince McMahon. Vince gave me the platform to do the things I’m doing. He gets so caught up in running a company every day that I think Vince forgets sometimes that he makes dreams come true. He gave me my dream life.

Q: Twenty years from now, when people are looking back on your career, what do you hope they say?

A: That they had a good time when watching me. … Whether they cheered me or booed me, liked me or didn’t like me, that they had a good time whenever they saw me.

    I’m surprised that fool Jason isn’t on here calling us Cena or WWE marks.

    Bottom line like Cena or hate him for the most part Cena IS entertaining. I’ll admit I marked out when he used the Thuganomics theme & did the old school look etc but that’s not where the character is at. Maybe again someday but I can see Cena as a face doing the “Thuganomic” persona. Only time will tell.

    big show,kane,rey mysterio,and triple h will be inducted in the hall of fame in the coming years if they retire oh yeah and chris jericho too

    personally for me i like both cenas the in ring persona & most definately the out of ring cena as for a match up for cena i’d have to say randy macho man circa 1987 that would be my dream match.

    how can somebody who doesn’t like you have a good time watching you john? that obviously doesn’t make any sense.

  • xMaskedReptilex

    Yup, as much as I hate Cena’s gimmick, he deserves it, Cena deserves to be in the Hall Of Fame!

  • S_Napalm

    Do I like Cena’s character? Hell no! I want Thuganomics back but we all know that aint happening

    I damn well respect him though. Totally worthy of going into the Hall of Fame 15-20 years down the line

    ugh what a suck up.

  • hbk fan

    hes only held the belt nine million times by now so hes a shoe in

  • Jimbo

    20 years from now:

    Wrestlemania XLVIII

    30-time champ John Cena vs. 30-time champ Randy Orton

    But in all seriousness, Cena does seem like a good guy in real life.

  • Antoine

    john cenas a stand up guy and deserves to be in the hall of fame when he retires
