A number of WWE superstars have tried to make a career in Hollywood but the most successful of them all have been the Rock. He has not only made a successful transition from a wrestling to an acting career but he has went on to become one of the most successful Hollywood stars of all time.
During his recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, John Cena who have followed the footsteps of the People’s Champion and has found success in Hollywood recently, talked about a number of things and he revealed the advice Rock had given him.
The 16 Time World Champion recalled the time when he had an audition for a movie called Trainwreck and he was nervous about it. So he called the Great One to get some advice for his audition and according to Cena, the advice Dwayne Johnson gave him has struck with him ever since:
“I don’t even know if he knows this was such sage advice – he just turned to me all smooth and casual like he always does with everything he says, and then in such an inspirational tone as with everything he does, he was like, ‘Just be yourself, man. That’s why they asked you there in the first place.’ And that message of always be authentically yourself has stuck with me and created the opportunities that I have. Thank you, The Rock.”
Apart from this, John Cena also talked about his WWE feud with the Rock, how he became friends with the former World Champion during the course of their rivalry and more.
