John Cena Speaks on MITB, His WWE Debut, The Rock and More

– John Cena recently featured in a live chat with Comcast Cable to promote WrestleMania 25. Below are highlights from the live chat:

On if he would turn heel: “That’s not up to me, that’s certainly up to the fans. I’ve always just been myself. I’ve formed a strong connection with a lot of folks, but if they ever get sick of me, it’ll be them that make it happen ”

On working with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on a movie: “I would love to. As much as I would like to have a match with him, I think both of our presence on screen would be pretty cool. I don’t know what movie has ever seen that much kick-ass. Maybe a remake of “Predator,” or something. But I’d love to.”

On Triple H: “I think he’s one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time and on top of that, he’s a consumate professional. I think he’s going to beat Randy Orton, and he’s certainly one of the guys that’s been instrumental in my success. He’s been fantastic for WWE.”

On who has helped him the most in the business: “Arn Anderson and from the current roster, Shawn Michaels.”

On if he agrees with WWE going PG: “I certainly do. I think it’s very, very important in this day and age, and in a time where role models are falling like a house of cards, I really enjoy the position that I’m in and there is nothing more flattering than having a parent come up and say, ‘You are my son’s role model. Keep doing what you’re doing.'”

On the Money in the Bank ladder match: “That’s certainly a match that everyone has their eyes on, and over the years it’s been quite an honor to be in that group. … I certainly would love an opportunity.”

On his WWE debut in 2002 against Kurt Angle: “Nervous. Very nervous. I don’t remember much from it, it was just a very, very fast day. I’d prepared for it all my life and when it actually happened, I was just very, very nervous.”
