On the build to WrestleMania: "I cannot tell you how stressful this last year has been on my life," Cena said. "A lot of things have happened to me from a business and personal perspective that have taken a lot of my time and emotion, but it's all been built toward this one day and I'm happy to share it with good people."
On the the need for a decisive finish to his match with the Rock: "I never know where Dwayne's head is at. I truly don't. I truly don't want it that way (cheap finish). I think we had a scenario like that at last year's WrestleMania, and to be honest I thought it was quite disappointing. When you spend a year building a match, you should have a legitimate decision on who the best is on that night. That would be like the Super Bowl playing three overtimes and calling it a tie. I'm just not into that."
On the ruymors of Brock Lesnar's involvement at WrestleMania: "Brock has a deep tradition in WWE. He's also a sportsman. He had a fantastic career in UFC. I think he understands what this match is. I think everyone does. I don't think there's a person whether they paid for a seat and will be behind the curtain today that doesn't want to see who number one is. It's not the venue to do any hocus pocus. We should just have a match and see who comes out the winner."
On turning heel: "I truly think that to be a successful bad guy and you seem quite educated so I will use the term heel...in this business you need to be a bad guy. I almost broke down and cried three or four times at the Make-A-Wish pizza party that we just had. You may not like what I do, but I'm not a bad guy. I would fight that tooth and nail. I don't know if I could do that."
