John Cena Discusses Evolution in Acting and Wrestling Careers

John Cena, former WWE superstar and now established Hollywood actor, recently discussed his career transition and growth during an interview on Busted Open Radio.

Cena noted that he didn’t feel comfortable in his acting skills until around 2015 or 2016, attributing the evolution to constant learning and coaching.

“So, I was surrounded by people better and smarter than me with more knowledge and they’re at all points in their career where they wanted to pass that knowledge on. That’s kind of what got me there And at the pace I got there. And like I said, I think it was in 2015 where I felt pretty fluent, like right around the time of the US Open challenge. That kind of encompasses like, bring anybody out here, I’ll figure it out.”

He also reflected on his WWE journey, crediting his growth to working with talented professionals like Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, and Eddie Guerrero. He said, “Again, there’s no such thing as an overnight sensation. I got to work with really gifted entertainers coming up — Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero, Rikishi, Booker T, JBL, all these guys who embraced the Shakespeare of what we did. That was a period where I just didn’t say anything and shut up and listened and asked afterwards. I was lucky enough to be able to ask some, ‘Hey, why did this happen?’ and get some great answers and insight,” Cena explained.

Cena’s comments provide a glimpse into his dedication and humility, two traits that have undoubtedly contributed to his successful careers in both arenas.
