John Cena has worked hard to become one of the biggest names in professional wrestling, as he carried WWE on his back from 2006 to 2016. He is now a part-timer, having a busy schedule in Hollywood. He recently had some harsh comments about Austin Theory and it appears that Cena was warned not to let his Hollywood success get to his head.
John Cena has always made sure to give it his best no matter what role he is given and his Hollywood accolades as of late speak for themselves. This includes his roles in films such as ‘The Suicide Squad’ and ‘Peacemaker’ and even the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies.
Recently, John Cena revealed that he didn’t believe in Austin Theory before he brutally eviscerated him during a promo on RAW before WrestleMania 39. Many people felt that might not have been the best way to give advice to Austin Theory.
While speaking on The Wrestling Time Machine, WWE Hall Of Famer Teddy Long came to Austin Theory’s defence and addressed John Cena’s comments about Theory. He then warned Cena to not let his Hollywood success get to his head.
“Like I said, man, you know how this business goes. Cena has moved on now to become a big star (in Hollywood). So, you know, that sometimes can go to your head. You know, you just have to calm down, and my thing has always been this, ‘Don’t ever forget where you come from.”
John Cena will also star in Greta Gerwig’s highly anticipated film ‘Barbie,’ where he will be portraying the role of mermaid. Regardless, we’ll have to see whether he will take Teddy Long’s advice.
