John Cena brought a lot of attention to himself when pictures of him popped up showing him with a full head of hair. After all, people we were very used to the buzzcut. Either way, he showed up at the WWE Super Show-Down in Australia with much longer hair than we were used to seeing and it threw people for a loop.
John Cena recently sat down with Chris Van Vliet where he was immediately asked about his hair and what he thought about it being such a hot topic of conversation. Cena was understanding that people would care so much about his hair because of the image he portrays as the character John Cena on WWE television. In the end, he grew it out in order to attract more movie roles.
“I think there’s a lot of dedicated WWE fans out there and people are used to John Cena the character looking a certain way. Especially when John Cena — I hate third personing myself — but, me the character is very close to me, the person. I really enjoy the move making process. I enjoy telling stories like we do in WWE through movies.”
“This (motioning at his hair) is an uncomfortable situation for me to embrace that I dig so hopefully it will give me more opportunities to tell more stories and that’s my goal. Sometimes you have to go through some uncomfortable stuff to reach the goal end process.”
Cena also chimed in that “it’s gonna look weird,” when he returns to WWE while adding: “Yeah, I don’t know if I can wear a cap.” He must have been joking because those baseball caps mean a lot of merch money.
You never know what John Cena is planning, but it seems like his next house show run might not be too physically demanding. He needs to be in great shape for any future projects coming his way. Hopefully, with a full head of hair, he’ll be able to snag even more movie roles so we’ll be seeing a lot more of him on the silver screen.
