Vince McMahon runs WWE the way he wants to as he has the last word in everything that goes on in the company. John Cena was the face of the company for more than a decade. The two have a very complex relationship.
John Cena spoke to Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he provided an explanation as to what Vince McMahon means to him. It includes the like of being a father figure and friend.
“He is so much more than that to me. He is a friend, a father figure, a mentor, a trusting resource. He’s filled with wisdom, but above all else, yes, I still think of him as my boss.”
“He’s also had a tremendous affect on my life. I mean, that’s a couch session for you and I, I’m probably going to have to pay you a therapist fee for that,” Cena joked. “But he’s really had a tremendous impact on my life.”
Cena has a busy life in Hollywood now but has made it clear he wants to do something substantial at this year’s Wrestlemania. Perhaps we will see him compete in a match at Wrestlemania 36.
