John Cena regrets his feud with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
In a recent interview, John Cena reflected on his past rivalry with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. During one of their segments, Cena called out The Rock and criticized him for not being in WWE all the time and choosing Hollywood instead. However, Cena would go on to walk the same path. He is now a part-timer in WWE, making very few appearances. His last match in WWE was with Austin Theory for the United States Championship at WrestleMania 39.
Appearing on the Happy Sad Confused webcast, Cena spoke about his rivalry with The Rock:
“I got selfish and me — living WWE at the point and not having any concept of growth or someone else’s perspective — I took Dwayne’s comments [about the business] as not genuine,” said John Cena. “My view was if you love something, be there everyday. Like, what a hypocrite I am, because I still love WWE and I can’t go all the time. And I just didn’t see that. I was so selfish.”
Cena went on to say that at the time, he didn’t understand what wrestlers like The Rock and Batista were doing in the Hollywood industry. He said that he was selfish back then for calling them out for doing what they love. After becoming a movie star himself, he finally understood their reasons for leaving WWE for Hollywood. He concluded by saying that he and The Rock have put their old rivalry aside and are good friends now.
