• John Cena On Why He Made So Many Bad Movies
During an appearance on the Insight with Chris Van Vliet podcast, WWE Legend John Cena revealed why he made so many bad movies, before finally getting his big break recently by basically replacing his old WWE rival Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the co-star of the Fast & Furious franchise, alongside Vin Diesel, while The Rock’s character was switched to a Spin-Off movie in recent years.
Here’s what Cena had to say:
“I started doing movies as a business decision. Steve Austin was supposed to do The Marine, he passed. Vince was like, ‘Hey I need you to go to Australia,’ this was two weeks before shooting as he explained that if we can bolster WWE Studios then we can bolster WWE live event attendance. So, we can do larger buildings and be more wide spread.
I was like, ‘This guy’s on to something, alright, let’s go do this thing so I can get back in the ring!’ That was the wrong approach to take and in turn I did a lot of bad movies.
I had to change my perception and that came after tremendous failure. I thought after all those bad movies I was done. 15 Years later I got a second chance at the movie business and we are talking about Fast 9. But that comes from absolute fall on your face failure.”
