While speaking to Digital Spy, John Cena talked about how fans want him to turn heel but mentioned that fans would rag on him if WWE actually went through with it.
“So many times in WWE, the audience tells me – at the top of their lungs – that they want me to change. But over the years I’ve learned that, if I change, they’ll just rag on me about something else. I’m never gonna please them and, at the same time, I would be turning my back on those that I care about. So it couldn’t have been a better situation for me to be involved with this movie.”
Cena also talked about how there is more to him than just his wrestling character.
“I am a 40-year-old adult – there’s a man behind the hand. I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for this [the hand] and I have great perspective of that. I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for those things. But it’s always a challenge to let people know that there’s a little more to me.”
