• Top WWE Star Reveals Why He Won’t Turn Heel
During a recent interview with Digital Spy, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena promoted his movie Ferdinand & talked about wrestling as well.
Below are the highlights:
On fans wanting him to turn heel:
“So many times in WWE, the audience tells me – at the top of their lungs – that they want me to change. But over the years I’ve learned that, if I change, they’ll just rag on me about something else. I’m never gonna please them and, at the same time, I would be turning my back on those that I care about. So it couldn’t have been a better situation for me to be involved with this movie.”
On there being more to him than his wrestling character:
“I am a 40-year-old adult – there’s a man behind the hand. I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for this [the hand] and I have great perspective of that. I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for those things. But it’s always a challenge to let people know that there’s a little more to me.”
