John Cena Talks About His Split Reactions from Fans These Days
- John Cena spoke with The Washington Post while in Washington, DC for this weekend's Susan G. Komen race. Below are some highlights:
You take part in charity and cause events more than anyone else in WWE, it seems, and youíve been doing it for more than a decade now. Does it still have the same sense of fulfillment after all these years?
Absolutely. Especially something like this, the Global Race for the Cure in D.C. is enormous. I get to pretty much grand marshal the race, get to rile everybody up, get them set to run a good one. When I talk about that instance with my brother, my goal is to help people. When you walk down this career path ó you say Iíve been doing this close to a decade ó your goals change as your career goes on. You want to spend your time making a difference after youíve become successful. I guess thatís the easiest way to say it. With this, early detection is the way to fight and beat this thing. D.C. has the highest mortality rate in breast cancer. So to be able to grand marshal the Global Race in D.C., it makes a difference. Hopefully it will help save some peopleís lives.
When dealing with your own body, how do you take care of yourself in an industry thatís dangerous and also gets its share of public bad news every so often?
I think that bad news is relative. You hear bad news through all of sports, in all of life. Itís not just entertainers or athletes. There are people with problems in life. The way I stay on top of that is, honestly, regularly scheduled check-ups, listening to my body, making sure I push myself to the limit and not beyond. You can only do what you handle.
A lot has changed with WWE in the past decade in terms of health and well-being, do you think the younger wrestlers are now better informed and know their limits?
With the addition of impact testing, the addition of drug testing, the formulation of developmental territories where these younger WWE superstars are getting the best medical attention, the best financial advice, getting future advice ó the company has literally leaps and bounds improved the work environment to the best itís ever been. Being a WWE superstar is now a greater achievement and a greater luxury than itís ever been.
Your status with the fans is kind of split these days and has been for a little while. Does that ever impact the things you do outside of the ring?
Dude. You say a little while. On April 6 we just celebrated the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania. I distinctly remember Wrestlemania 22 in Chicago, hearing the loudest one-sided reaction opposite me Iíve ever heard. Since then itís been like that. Itís been eight years now. That stuff doesnít transfer. The few audience members that it does transfer, they donít have a proper sense of whatís going on.

He needs a refreshing. I understand hes so over with kids and sells ridiculous amount of merchandise but the dudes "character" is just so burnt out and has been shoved down everyone's throats for the past 9yrs. Ever since he won the title at WM21, its been all about Cena.
He needs something to just give him that spark or something. A full heel turn would be a cool thing to see but i understand business wise thats probably not the best decision. But they need to do something with him.Follow Me: @iJESSE19XX
