John Cena recently spoke about his return from injury and more. Here are the highlights…
On his return from injury: I just don’t like [being out]. I really like the job and it comes with ups and downs and I know not necessarily everyone at my job loves me but that shouldn’t sour me from my place of employment. I’ve truly found a home in the WWE and when I’m not there all I want to do is be there. I think that helped me get back really soon because everything I did was focused on getting back sooner and sooner.
What does he want to do at WrestleMania 30: Honestly, I like seeing how WrestleMania unfolds. I’ve had different matches over the years. I’ve been scattered throughout the menu. But looking back at all my WrestleMania performances, the fact is that I was there and I really enjoy seeing what’s going to happen. I was a part of WrestleMania XX and if you look at the timeline from XX until now, XX pretty much laid the foundation of the people who are truly the driving force of the company right now. So who’s to say what’s going to happen at [WrestleMania] XXX? I really just want to be able to find out. First of all, I’m glad that tickets are going on sale on the 16th because that makes the event very [real]. And then I just want to be able to see where I can be, what I can do, and how this whole thing is going to shake up.
On being a Captain America fan: Keep in mind that when I say I’m a Captain America fan, I’m going by the movies. I’m not much of a comic book reader so excuse my ignorance; I don’t want to offend any of your devout fans out there. How they presented Captain America in the movie, I shared parallels. This is a guy who all he wanted to do was just get in and go. Get put on the field and go. And when he was put in a diplomatic role, like, wear the suit and go out and say the war is good; he was like, “No. I want to get in there and fight.” And I really, truly liked that. I’m a bit of World War II buff so I liked how they, in a comic book sort of way, accentuated World War II and that conflict. I really enjoyed that movie so that’s why I would say Captain America.
