​John Cena Discusses The Skills He’s Picked Up In Wrestling That Have Helped With Acting, Retirement


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.”
