In the last couple of years, fans have witness John Cena take a more backseat approach on the WWE roster as of late. As his role in the company diminishes, the 16x World Heavyweight Champion has taken a more active approach in Hollywood.
During an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Cena reflects on his feud with The Rock heading into Wrestlemania 28 and the regret he has for calling him out for leaving the WWE for Hollywood. Check out the quote below:
“It was stupid of me,” Cena said. “It genuinely was. That was my perspective at the time. When you’re involved in the daily grind of WWE, and that’s something I never will let go of—I promise you that. I just love it, and I don’t think I need to say that, ever again, or have somebody question my allegiance to a brand, not the sport of professional wrestling, so to say, but a brand. I love the WWE. For me to not be able to see Dwayne’s vision on what he wanted to do personally, and how his personal success could affect a growing global brand, that was just ignorant on my part.”
