John Cena Speaks on His Favorite Wrestler, Wrestling/Acting and More

Kidsday, a publication for kids, recently conducted an interview with WWE Superstar John Cena. Some of the highlights:

Why do you like wrestling?

I love it because I get to be athletic and at the same time it is very very exciting. If you have ever been to a WWE event the fans get very, very excited. I like that.

Who is your best friend in the WWE?

My best friend from WWE is Santino. He is the funniest guy because he is such an idiot. He is cool to hang around with and we hang around a lot.

Which do you like better wrestling or acting?

I like them both. The reward is kind of different. With a movie, it takes like eight months to make the movie so you dont see a reward until eight months later and you totally kind of forget about it. With wrestling, the second you walk through the curtain people are going bananas so you are immediately satisfied with wrestling. But the movie is equally as satisfying it just takes a little longer.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am trying to learn how to fish, but I am not very good at it. The fish like me when they see me coming to the pond because I don’t catch anything. I also like to work on old cars. Besides that, just hang out at the house with my dog. I got a little mini schnauzer.

How do you get all your fans to like you?

Well, I don’t force them to choose. I be myself, and I am very very honest with them. I never say anything I dont mean. I let them make up their own mind. A lot of them like me and a lot of them don’t like me, but I dont get mad at the ones who dont like me. I like doing what I do.

What is it like being famous?

I don’t consider myself there yet, but it sure is busy. But it’s also cool, I get to do cool stuff like this. I get to do a lot of stuff that I never dreamed would happen. I certainly appreciate all that has happened.

Who is your favorite wrestler?

Favorite wrestler of all time is Hulk Hogan. Since I was a little kid I have had a lot more favorites for a lot of different reasons, but the No. 1 guy of all time is Hulk Hogan.
