John Cena spoke with the Wall Street Journal promoting his role in Sisters. Check out the highlights:

On his eventual in-ring retirement: “I know that I’m in a time fighting business. I’ve always sworn to myself that if I can’t keep up with the current level athletically, it’s my time to take another role, whether that’s commentating on the matches or stepping behind the curtain and molding younger talent. I always want to do whatever I can to help the [professional wrestling] industry. I see firsthand how happy we make kids and families. When you get a kid to sit down and have a conversation with [their] Superman, it’s the coolest thing. It makes their day. That’s a pretty cool, unique thing.”

On the skills he’s picked up in wrestling that have helped with acting: “Every night is new. Every piece of material is different. That’s to me what keeps that passionate fire to perform live in front of people.”
