John Cena and Dwayne Johnson fought in Wrestlemania’s main events in 2012 and 2013. The 16-time world champion has recently confessed his guilt and regret of handling things wrongly and even said Dwayne Johnson is a ‘sell-out’. Earlier, The Rock said goodbye to the WWE even if he was among the top wrestlers. Later he walked on the path of his acting career and entered Hollywood, and surprisingly John Cena also followed in his footsteps.
John Cena also admitted that he regrets how things turned out after he made that comment and how he took a professional matter personally because he thinks The Rock ditched WWE to make it big in Hollywood. He realized this especially after he followed the same path.

Recently, the 16-time world champion confessed his mistakes by making points about The Rock in different interviews he also talked about their feud, and further added:
“I said some things that were less than nice. He said some things that were less than nice. I can assure you, in our line of work there is a grey area where imagination becomes very real and we were right in the sweet spot of that grey area, each watching the other’s every move and not too happy with the other party. It was stupid of me. It genuinely was. That was my perspective at the time.”
Well, after his confession it seems like this might be a new beginning for the two. And to be honest a hardworking personality like The Rock doesn’t deserve all this hate. Not only, his wrestling game but he decided to retire from WWE in 2004 to carry on his acting career in Hollywood. He is best known for his constant box office hits with projects like Jumanji, Hobbs and Shaw, Central Intelligence, Baywatch, Skyscraper, Hercules, and now upcoming Black Adam.
