WWE.com interview

Interview

Cena talks to WWE.com about WWE Superstars as the latest installment to WWE’s video game franchise.

To me, it was like the games I grew up really liking. I don’t want to say it’s a throwback, because the game is technologically as good as any other game. But it’s got the gameplay and the over-the-top moves that I like. It’s very pick-up-and-go.

Associated Press interview

Interview

Cena talks to Associated Press about The Rock and people complaining about his part time schedule.

When he gets a small opportunity, he kicks the damn door down and owns the horse. Often times here, we have Superstars that remind me of a hamster on the treadmill and those are the guys that usually complain. I don’t take too kindly to them. I’m fortunate Rock’s here and I’m glad he’s here. He can show up whenever he wants.

  I really wanted the show to be a success. I truly love Nicole, and I believe in her. It was a conscience decision for me to do it. I think our viewers will enjoy the second half of the first season that’s coming back in mid-November on the E! network. As the show grows, it gets better and more interesting to watch, and I think fans will enjoy it this time around

FOX Business interview

Interview

Cena talks to FOX Business about retirement and his Kmart clothing brand.

Kmart picked up on this concept. And, from a branding standpoint, I just didn’t outright leverage myself; I wanted a piece and equity in the brand. So, there was upfront money, plus equity in the brand.

Zap2It interview

Interview

Cena speaks to Zap2It about Daniel Bryan’s popularity and CM Punk.

Predicting the next WWE Superstar is like predicting the crooked stock market at the turn of the 19th century. You just can’t. That’s what’s beautiful about the WWE audience, that’s why I love it so much. It changes everyday, every arena, every city. I don’t know who will be next but I will keep trying to put people front and center so the WWE Universe gets a good look at people.

Miami Herald interview

Interview

Cena talks to The Miami Herald about his potential match with Hulk Hogan and young talent in WWE.

I do what I love, so when you wake up everyday, it’s not a job… A dream opponent for me would be Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan and Sting. I’m not sure if I could ever get in the ring with any of them, but you have heard Hogan say in the past, if he had one last match, he would want it to be against me. I say as a Hulk-a-Maniac growing up that would be the biggest honor I’ve ever received.
