John Cena Speaks on his Future in Wrestling, Hosting the ESPYS, Total Divas

It was announced on Thursday that John Cena will be hosting the 2016 ESPYS. The show will be broadcast live on Wednesday, July 13 at 8 pm eastern on ABC. Cena spoke with about hosting the award show and more. Here are the highlights.

On hosting the ESPYS:

“They asked, and of course I said yes,” Cena said. “It goes without saying it’s a tremendous honor. The prestige of the show grows every year. It’s unbelievable. I obviously accepted, but it doesn’t go without its share of nerves. I just want to do the show justice. I’m going to do my due diligence, and hopefully, we can have a great show.”

On his future in wrestling:

“I’m going to be wrestling for as long as I can,” Cena said. “It’s something I’m very passionate about and something that I love.”

On being filmed for Total Divas and his relationship with Nikki Bella:

That’s a bit difficult for me, but I love Nicole to death. She has a drive and a work ethic that is inspirational to me. She had a wonderful opportunity and was brave enough when the WWE came to the cast of ladies with the idea for a show that makes their private lives public. A lot of them said no, but she was one of the very few who said yes and has now created a brand that is six seasons strong and has been fortunate enough to get other opportunities. It’s not something I would have pursued, but because it can help Nicole out and I love Nicole very much, I do what I can for her and her show.

Cena also talked about his goals, future in acting and more. You can read the entire interview here.
