• John Cena Comments On The Conflict Between The Rock & Vin Diesel
During an interview on the ‘Pardon My Take’ podcast, WWE Legend John Cena was asked about the conflict between fellow Fast & Furious stars Vin Diesel and WWF Legend Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, but clearly stated that he wouldn’t take anyone’s side in it.
Here’s what the 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion said:
“I don’t think that story is about taking sides. That story is about hearing everybody’s perspective and it is a story where, me as a fan of the franchise, I’d love the franchise to get together for this last run.
I hope they call me to be in it but when someone says professional, they want to go in another direction, if you say anything other than, ‘okay,’ it’s their professional opinion to make the choice that they want. I think that’s very brave and very honest.
So I think Vin’s perspective has a lot of gravity and honesty and I think Dwayne’s perspective has a lot of gravity and honesty. I think this is, man if we could just stop taking sides and just take a second to hear everybody.
These are two amazingly successful superstars, people who have crafted their own existence and are globally adored. Vin’s been the father of the Fast franchise, he’s coming in on his 10th installment.
Dwayne started as the most electrifying sports entertainer in the history of sports entertainment and he is now in his own universe. I guess it’s just about understanding where each guy is coming from. That’s all.”
Cena main evented 2 WrestleManias (WrestleMania 28 & 29) with The Rock and later on joined the Fast & Furious franchise in recent years, after Dwayne had already left the movie series.
