16-time World Champion John Cena made his WWE return on December 26 at the Madison Square Garden and has been working a series of live events as part of his return schedule while also making his much-anticipated WWE TV appearance this week on SmackDown Live.

The Champ is set to appear next week on Monday Night RAW and still has eight more shows to work before leaving for Hollywood prior to the Royal Rumble.

During an interview with The Sports Daily, Cena revealed the most valuable piece of advice he recently received from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“The Rock has been genuine enough to tell me to be myself. I think it was great advice. It came right at a time when I needed it. I tried some movies before, and they weren’t really successful. The reason I was doing those movies was trying to create a business model. Then I looked back at myself and realized I just like telling stories.”

“He gave me some pretty cool advice at unbelievable timing. He said: ‘Hey man, they’re going to like you, or hate you, for you. Be yourself. At least that way at the end of the day you’ll feel good about your body of work.'”

It’s no secret that the Cena is currently walking in Johnson’s footsteps; he is thoroughly Hollywood-bound and is a part-timer in WWE.

The Leader of Cenation is presumably going to miss Royal Rumble on January 27, having missed SummerSlam and Survivor Series this past year. It’s interesting to see Cena miss three of the “Big 4” PPVs on a single calendar; luckily his status for WrestleMania 35 stands confirmed at this point.

In 2018, Cena worked only two pay-per-view matches for WWE since WrestleMania 34 – a singles match at Greatest Royal Rumble and a Tag Team match at Super Show-Down.
