Former WWE World Hvt. champion John Cena is adamant that he is a clean wrestler who doesn’t use steroids and works harder than anyone else in the gym to maintain his physique.
Related to last week’s revelation that over 100 professional baseball players failed steroid tests in the past few years, Cena says he has very strong opinions about the fate of the violators.
“They should send the guys to jail,” Cena said in an interview with Jim Moore of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer prior to Sunday’s No Way Out PPV. “I’m not only a guy who will say I’m clean, but I’ll beat my chest to the world that I’m clean.”
Cena says he’s getting married by the end of the year and wants to be a strong leader and role model when prominent celebrities and potential role models are slipping in front of the general public’s watchful eye.
“I don’t know when it happened, but nowadays it seems like nobody cares,” Cena said about the lack of role models in society. “Our main figures are collapsing around us. People don’t seem to know that other people are watching them.”
If Cena can’t be a role model to wrestling fans, he hopes he can spread his reach to the general public through his developmental as an action star. He hopes to fill a void in the movie industry for the next big action star.
“That’s a giant void in cinema,” Cena said. “Everywhere I go, the question is always: ‘Who’s the next guy?’ I think I’m damn near the closest thing to come around the pike.”
