John Cena regrets The Rock and the words he said
by SEAD DEDOVIC | VIEW 426
John Cena was a guest on the "Happy Sad Confused" podcast where he talked about interesting topics. Many are hoping for his match against The Rock, but it seems that it won't happen anytime soon. Cena has been without a win for a long time, and he believes that he must go to an easier obstacle first.
“I’m so old. I haven’t won a match in like five years. No one notices, thank you, but if you check the stats, I’m on a bit of a slump. He’s not exactly an easy opponent. I need to get somebody really easy to get another win on the board before I go knocking on The Rock’s door again”.

John Cena regrets his words
Cena also recalled two main Wrestle Mania events with The Rock. John regrets many of the things he said then and his approach. It seems that he would like to change things.
Cena thinks that he was not mature in those moments. “I would like to think, in my perspective, that we always have been good, except for one little patch where I really messed up. I got selfish and me, living WWE at that point, did not have any concept of growth or someone else’s perspective.
I took Dwayne’s comments as not genuine, and my view was, if you love something, then be there every day. What a hypocrite I am. Because I still love WWE, and I can’t go all the time. I just didn’t see that. I was so selfish.
I had his number and we could have talked about it. Instead of going, ‘Hey, man, I’d like to try to do this thing to hook you back in and maybe we can collaborate, and really make it big,’ I was like, ‘F this,’ and was calling this dude out.
This is a moment, he gave me an opening, and I’m gonna kick the door open. I was diligent, and I understand why he got upset because he’s changing the perception of the industry. Him, Dave Bautista, they made it okay to be in WWE.
WWE isn’t that carnival performer stereotype. Pro wrestlers have had that carny stereotype for so long, and these guys are breaking down barriers and shattering ceilings, and on top of that, just transcending the art form, and I just got selfish and wanted a main-event marquee match because it would better what I thought was the business. That’s so short-sighted and selfish”.
