John Cena Talks About The Second Half Of His WWE Career, Reveals A Label He “Hates”
In part two of John Cena reflecting on his decade of dominance in WWE, the twelve-time world champion reveals that he dislikes being formally recognized as the sport-entertainment promotion’s premiere Superstar.
“I just do the best I can do. I hate those words like “face of the company” or “flagbearer.” I hate that. I’m just the best that I can be,” said Cena. “And, I take great pride in that people want to come after me. I’m always ready for a fight. I’m me, I’m the best me I can be, and we’ve put together a pretty good ten years and I’m hoping for ten more.”
Cena also discusses bringing back his “Doctors of Thuganomics” persona during his rivalry with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“That whole year-long with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, there were little moments of thuggery in there,” Cena said. “I thought it was really cool. It gave a different approach to me validating my position right next to Dwayne Johnson. He seems to claim that he’s the best ever (to) hold the microphone. I seem to dispute that title.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Cena opens up on his unique relationship with the WWE audience.
