As time passed, Cena slowly became the biggest name in professional wrestling. A total of sixteen world championships only in WWE is something that no one ever could achieve. There are so many other records that has been achieved by Cena are almost impossible to beat.

John Cena ruled the world of professional wrestling for a long period of time. This is something that has been achieved by the immortal Hulk Hogan only. Wrestlers like stone cold Steve Austin and the Rock could not even achieve such accomplishments like John Cena.

Recently the former 16 times world champion John Cena appeared on Insight With Chris Van Vliet where he discussed what he did to transform himself into a great actor. He said;

“I mean if you look at it in that perspective, I started out doing movies as a business decision. It was originally supposed to be Steve Austin but he passed. Vince was like ‘Hey I need you to go to Australia.’ This is 2 weeks before shooting. He explained if we can bolster WWE studios, we will bolster WWE live event attendance.

“We can host larger venues and be more widespread. I’m like this guy is onto something, lets go do this so I can get back to the ring. That’s the wrong approach to take, but I continued to take that approach to the movies that I did, and in turn I made a lot of bad movies. So now transfer that into WWE speak.

“This match would be good for the energy drink I’m trying to sell. If more people like the match more people will drink the energy drink. No, you have a match match because you f*cking loved to have those matches and you want to be there and be in the middle of it, look around at the majesty.

“So it wasn’t until honestly the Fred movies where I could parody myself and that was kind of the start of all that. And after that Trainwreck, where I could have fun with the process and expect nothing out of it. Fred was a cameo, Trainwreck was a cameo and I did a bunch of other small cameos where I stop looking at is as a vehicle and start to look at this as creative fun. The thing is I was looking at WWE like that all of the time. WWE is not a vehicle for me to go anywhere else, it was where I want to be.

“I then fell in love with falling into another character, taking the jorts off once in a while and showing my ass on television. It’s fun, it’s imaginative and it also keeps the passion for WWE. If they change my character heel or babyface or whatnot, it doesn’t matter because I have these other outlets I can express those emotions that I want to do.

“I had to change my perception and that came after tremendous failure. I thought after all those bad movies I was done. 15 years later I got a second chance at the movie business and we are talking about Fast 9. But that comes from absolute fall on your face failure.”
