John Cena was interviewed by Sports Illustrated this week as part of the promotion for the YouTube Red animated series “Dallas and Robo.” He also talked about wrestling, specifically his match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania and why wrestlers should be happy and make the best off of things even if they are booked as the opener on a pay-per-view.
“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.”
Cena 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.”
Cena also said that he was only supposed to sit in the crowd at WrestleMania but he pushed to be there longer so he could suspend disbelief. He also made sure that he got a real ticket so he could walk into the arena when the doors open.
The message from Cena in his interview is for Superstars to be happy with what is given and then take the ball and run with it.
The trailer for Dallas & Robo, starring Cena and Kat Dennings, is up now. Check it out below:
