John Cena Took Inspiration From Dwayne Johnson

John Cena addressed his feud with Dwayne Johnson and how the long-running war had benefitted their careers as wrestlers. It had brought them massive fame and even managed to break the WWE pay-per-view records. It had become the highlight of their WWE careers and they had trash-talked each other for over a year. This feud was then taken to the ring where they fought each other heartily.

“Basically we were able to set aside our differences that night and in the next year I began to get more chances at opportunities.” Cena added, “I was really nervous and I’m like, ‘I should really talk to the one guy who’s in a lot of movies.’ And Dwayne just happened to be at WWE.”

Their history may not have been the kindest but, both knew that if they were going to make it into the Hollywood industry, the discourse was not going to help them at all. After the fight, they immediately became friends. They would often talk to each other and even would refer to each other as their best friend.

This advice became life-changing for Cena and he knew that if this was followed throughout his career, he would not be facing problems.

“Thank you,The Rock.”

He follows it even now and the two have never been closer.
