John Cena hasn’t been on a full-time WWE schedule in the past few years, and he has been spending less and less time in the ring as every year passes by.
During a recent interview with ESPN, John talked about his acting career and explained why he can’t wrestle while being an active part of a movie project.
Cena first discussed his reduced WWE schedule in recent years and claimed that even before he found out about his passion for being on the screen, he had made himself the promise that he will walk away when he can’t keep up with the pace.
Continuing on the topic, he said that he doesn’t want to take a ticket buyer’s money and have them sit down thinking that he is not good enough in his craft anymore.
Explaining the reason why he can’t do WWE and movies at the same time, The Leader of Cenation said that the biggest difficulty he has is trying to juggle stuff.
While he is trying to fight the system, he has learned that he is losing because once you are in production for a movie, they don’t allow you to wrestle.
The 16 Time World Champion detailed his comment further saying that he can’t go to a WWE taping, get his nose over and then go back to the shooting. It will force them to shut down the whole movie, affecting a good number of people involved with the project.
Even if the shooting continues, such incident will increase the insurance cost and as a result, the whole budget of the movie significantly, putting it behind an eight ball of possibly being a financial success.
Apart from this, Cena also talked about his feud with the Rock and how he was wrong to target Dwayne for not being an active performer. You can check out his full interview in the video below:
