John Cena Is The Next Wrestling Pro-Turned-Actor; Aims Drawing More Fans To Wrestling World With His Acting
For more than a decade, John Cena is included in one of the most accomplished wrestlers and helped in making WWE a huge league in the arena of sports and entertainment. But now, we can’t see him anymore on the ring as he intends to shift his career to a brand new world—in the field of acting. In a recent interview, he explained the main reason behind this decision.
“I’ve been a cornerstone of WWE programming since 2002. That’s a long time, it’s more than 10 years…so much so that a portion of our audience has direct complacency with me. ‘Man, Cena holds everybody down. He doesn’t give the new guys a chance.” Cena said.
Cena had cameo roles in some films before but this time, he is now given the opportunity to star in a reality TV show entitled “The American Grit” according to Cinema Blend. This is a competition which will feature contestants that need to surpass the challenges similar to the military. He also shared how he has now a deeper understanding on Dwayne Johnson’s shift too in his respective career after WWE.
“Personally, and this gives me a better perspective on Dwayne Johnson’s path, you get to a certain point and you cannot attract any more fans. Essentially, my productivity from a company standpoint…I’ve done as much as I can — 15 world championships and a myriad of other accomplishments. I don’t know what left I can do, but I still want to be able to put people in the building,” Cena explained. It’s wonderful to know he still loves to do his contribution to the wrestling world even if he won’t participate in it anymore.
John Cena has attracted thousands of fans and they will show their support for him in this new step he took.
