16-time World Champion and wrestler-turned-Hollywood Actor, John Cena recently spoke with Sports Illustrated for promoting the YouTube Red animated series, “Dallas and Robo”. Cena talked about wrestling with special emphasis on his match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 34 and also shed some valuable advice for the WWE Superstars who are unhappy with their spots in the company.
“That is a message to any performer who is complaining about their spot or that, creatively, they have nothing going for them. I’ve been first, I’ve been in the middle, I’ve been last. I just want to go out there and do something.”
The Leader of Cenation continued, “There are a few performers who share my ideology, with The Miz being one of them. That’s why he is skyrocketing into a new bracket as we speak, and I can’t wait to see what he does next week. But there is also a lot of disdain and complacency. You should be happy with any sort of role, even if it is getting your tail kicked in.”
Simply put, Cena asks the Superstars to be happy with what they are given and then take the ball and run with it, even if that means happily delivering their best on being booked as the opener on a Pay-Per-View event.
The Champ also narrated that he was only supposed to sit in the crowd at WrestleMania 34 but he pushed to be there longer so that he could have the crowd at the edge of their seats, wildly wondering whether The Undertaker would actually show up. Cena also mentioned buying a real ticket in order to walk into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when the doors opened.
The following is the trailer for Dallas & Robo, starring Cena and Kat Dennings:
