John Cena Talks Roman Reigns & If He Believes He Can Claim The Ring As “His Yard”

John Cena was recently interviewed by Justin Barrasso’s Extra Mustard column in Sports Illustrated and spoke on several subjects.

Here are some highlights:

Roman Reigns claiming the ring is his “yard”?

“Roman is in the trenches every night and he’s performing at an elite level with a champion caliber attitude. His performance and the response that he gets from certain audiences is indicative of an elite-level performer. He’s doing what I did in 2006, 2007, and 2008. He has all the justification in the world in saying it’s his yard.”

Why it’s a good time to be a WWE fan, more thoughts on Roman Reigns & Cena’s return:

“I’m not going to take anything away from Roman. He handles his business with the utmost professionalism. He’s doing it on his own watch. He’s not one of the those guys that comes over to me and asks me, ‘What happens next?’ He’s doing it his way, and I think that’s the best way to do it. He’s not trying to be the next John Cena, but he is being the only Roman Reigns-and that’s why it’s met with so much adversity.

“I can tell you from first-hand because I know. I wasn’t trying to be Stone Cold or The Rock, I was John Cena. That was met with adversity from people looking for the next Stone Cold or the next Rock. That’s what creates the dichotomy, the polarizing environment. I think Roman is doing a fantastic job, and he has an entire roster stacked with unbelievably gifted performers. It’s a good time to be a member of the WWE Universe. You’re seeing multiple brands operating at very high capacity, and I just can’t wait to get back. I’m doing what I’m doing now, but I really can’t wait to get back in the ring. As soon as they cut me loose from this movie in Atlanta, I’ll be back as soon as I can.”

John Cena’s Updated WWE Scheduled – Expected Return

WWE talent John Cena has been off TV since his WrestleMania 33 match partnering with Nikki Bella vs. The Miz and Maryse. Cena is currently doing promotional work for his new movie “the Wall.”

It’s being reported that John Cena is being advertised for the upcoming July 4th episode of Smackdown Live at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ. Cena is also being promoted for the Survivor Series PPV in November.

John Cena Talks On Why He Doesn’t Wrestle & Film At The Same Time,People Respecting Wrestling & More

WWE superstar John Cena was recently interviewed by The Metro to promote his new movie “The Wall” and spoke on several subjects involving wrestling, real life and acting.

Here are some highlights:

Why he can’t do movies and wrestle at the same time:

I would do both at the same time, but the movie guys are a little weird with their insurance. They don’t want me to go smashing my face up. [Laughs] I’m excited for all the opportunities outside the WWE ring, only because it raises awareness of the WWE. I take great pride in my profession, but I’m very aware of the perception of it. I think a lot of people think we are just what we are, and that’s it. There’s nothing wrong with that. But there are plenty of talented people who travel with the WWE and produce wonderful entertainment every week. We do live sports entertainment, and it’s like no other. To be able to do stuff like this outside of the norm and for people to say, “Wow, that’s pretty good,” that bodes well for getting more eyes on the ring.

People respecting wrestling more and more:

More and more. And a lot of our methods of entertainment are being adopted by both mainstream sports and mainstream entertainment. If you look at how ESPN has shifted its content, the way shows feature a lot of argumentative debate rather than informative sports reporting, then sports borrows a lot from the WWE. I’m very happy to see it, and I think that’s what leading to more understanding of what we do and respecting it.

The Wall being more different then recent films and capturing the intensity of being a solider:

It’s very intense, yet it’s mundane. It’s one of those things where you have to have your senses heightened at all times. But in the same breath, it’s so much waiting around. They could be sitting around for months on end, and all of a sudden they get a call and they’ve got to go. Keep in mind what these people in uniform are doing: They’re protecting the freedoms of the U.S.A. Often times we lose focus of that. And man, this is a powerful example of just how intense conflict can be. Not even addressing any sort of political stance, I have great respect for our servicemen and women and for what they sign up to do. There’s no draft anymore, so every person who stands up and takes a weapon does so voluntarily.

John Cena Proposes to Nikki Bella at Wrestlemania

After John Cena and Nikki Bella have their Wrestlemania moment together by defeating The Miz and Maryse, they made another memorable moment, with a proposal. Heading into this match, one of the big angles was that The Miz thought Cena was self centred because he didn’t want to marry Nikki. But in fact John was going to marry her, and was actually slowly building to it.

After they won their mixed tag match against Miz and Maryse, John Cena picked up the mic and did a speech. He mentioned that when Nikki went into her neck surgery around a year ago, he asked her a question while she was sedated, asking if she knows that he will ever marry her.

He went on to propose to her, and she said yes. The crowd erupted. Overall a nice moment.
