John Cena discusses his film career

John Cena won the WWE Championship thirteen times and the World Heavyweight Championship three times: this made him a sixteen times world champion (a record shared with Ric Flair). He also held the WWE United States Championship five times, twice the World Tag Team Championship and twice the WWE Tag Team Championship.

He won the 2008 and 2013 editions of the Royal Rumble match and the 2012 edition of the Money in the Bank, although he was unable to successfully cash in on it. In a long interview with Collider, he discussed his film career: “Dude, it’s a… I don’t know how any of this is happening.

I mean, I’m promoting a movie with Robert Downey Jr. I’m currently filming a movie, a superhero movie, with James Gunn. On film, I will cheat death but it’s so safe. I had no fear in any of the processes. When I saw small renderings of what it’s going to look like, I’m like, ‘What the f–k?’ It’s awesome and I think by making the actors feel that sense of like, ‘Hey man, we’ve set this up so you are going to be all right.

Just go for it.’ You get the best performance from your actors rather than somebody going, ‘I don’t know about this.’… It was unbelievably safe but also unbelievably creative”.
