The Rock Gave Some Much Needed Acting Advice To John Cena

Published

on

Over the years, John Cena has slowly become a major star in Hollywood. Last year, he was the star of two successful movies: Blockers and Bumblebee. The transition from wrestler to actor wasn’t easy, though. Fortunately, he got some advice from someone in the same boat.

My Time Is Now

In an interview with The Floor Seat, Cena discussed how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was a factor in his success. “The Rock has been genuine enough to tell me to be myself. I think it was great advice. It came right at a time when I needed it,” he said.

After a few years of success in the WWE, Johnson landed his first acting role in The Mummy Returns. In 2002, his first leading role in The Scorpion King earned him a record-setting $5 million. Since then, Johnson has been a part of several box office hits, including the Fast and the Furious franchise.

You Can’t See Me

John Cena got his start in acting with an uncredited role in 2000’s Ready To Rumble. His first major film was 2006’s The Marine, which was produced through World Wrestling Entertainment.

Cena’s time working on WWE films wasn’t his major highlight. “I tried some movies before, and they weren’t really successful. The reason I was doing those movies was trying to create a business model. Then I looked back at myself and realized I just like telling stories,” he told The Floor Seat.

Never Give Up

Last summer, Cena moved to Japan to work on Project X with action icon Jackie Chan. Cena replaced Sylvester Stallone, who was originally cast for the role of Chris Van Horne. The film is slated for a 2020 release.

When it comes to his overall acting experience, Cena states that he still enjoys learning from his mistakes. “I became successful in WWE by always learning and evolving. I believe that the people around me are smarter than me. Same thing in movies. I never watch playback. I never give feedback. I take feedback,” he told the Associated Press.
