Shifting careers, and being successful in both of those careers, is not an easy task, but Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is an exception to this rule. One of the many WWE wrestlers who have tried to follow his path, from the wrestling ring to the big screens, is the most well-known celebrity from WWE along with The Rock, and yes, we’re talking about none other than the Chain Gang Soldier-John Cena.

The 45-year-old, who is still highly active in the wrestling world, also has a very humble personality and is all-round a very charismatic person. The thirteen-time WWE Championship winner recently shared his thoughts about his career in the acting field and credits his fellow friend and wrestler, The Rock, with helping him achieve success as an actor…

Here’s The Advice That The Rock Gave John Cena

The Rock and John Cena have been rivals in the ring for quite a long time, but outside of it, they look somewhat like they’ve known each other their whole lives. That’s not too surprising, though, considering that both of them have found considerable success in the field of acting.

John Cena recently answered an interesting question about his friend Dwayne Johnson during a Q&A Session at a Comic Con event held in Wales. The question, which asked whether the wrestler had ever received advice from The Brahma Bull, stirred Mr. P’s mind. He answered-

“He is one of the reasons I have life outside the WWE. He gave me some of the best advice I’ve ever been given. I remember I got an audition for a small part in a movie called Trainwreck. There was a pretty thorough audition process, and I was very nervous. Because I’ve never been through that before.”

He ended up getting the role in Trainwreck. He continued his reply, adding that The Rock helped him calm down during the audition by giving him one simple piece of advice-


“I was able to ask him, ‘Hey man, do you have any advice?’ He said, ‘They asked you there for a reason dude, just be yourself.'”

“He, in that one sentence, allowed me to calm down. Allowed me to be myself, which I’m really a goofball. And they allowed me to do that on screen. Naked. He’s the reason I’m here.”

The rivalry between the two may have looked fierce and heated at times when they wrestled each other, but in reality, the two have been very supportive of each other!

During the same Q&A session at the Comic-Con in Wales, The Hustle, Loyalty & Respect Soldier gave an enticing hint about the future of his wrestling career-

“My answer is always the same. My next one. I haven’t yet hit the point where I’m fully retired, so I can always say my next one. Someday, I’ll have to reflect back and pick a favorite, but I know I’m not done with the ring, so my next one is my favorite one

An odd answer to be honest, but one that teases the fans too. Here’s to hoping he makes his comeback sooner or later.
