John Cena made an appearance last week at WWE WrestleMania 35. He is one of WWE’s most popular WWE superstars and has won the WWE title more than 15 times. Since making it to Hollywood, John Cena has stopped being a full-time wrestler.
He cannot wrestle and shoot films at the same time. Cena did not perform at WrestleMania 35 but appeared during Elias’ segment to insult him and deliver an ‘F-U’ to him. Cathy Kelley interviewed Cena backstage after his appearance and was asked about who pitched him the gimmick idea.
"So, the idea came up and I immediately said yes," Cena said. "And I know I kind of look ridiculous and I'm in the 2004 way back machine, but I think it was really special and it was done all in the good heart of entertainment.
I thought Elias put on a really creative performance, and I didn't want to take a ton of time away from the event or the Superstars who have earned a chance to go out there, and do what they do. I know we were only a few minutes, it was awesome to be out there.
It felt really fun and I think it was a nice surprise for all the WrestleMania fans. So, that's my one rabbit out of the hat, and I don't know what I'm going to do after this, but I just wrapped a movie on Thursday.
So, I didn't want to do anything via satellite, I didn't want to do nothing and not be here, but I was here and I was on the event, and they recommended me to do this and I thought it was a great idea."
