John Cena admits he is a HYPOCRITE for making past comments

Last updated

In a candid admission, John Cena, the renowned face of WWE from 2006 to 2016, recently acknowledged his hypocrisy over past comments he made about fellow wrestler and Hollywood star, Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson. This revelation came during Cena’s appearance on Logan Paul’s podcast, Impaulsive.

Cena, known for his forthright attitude, had previously criticised The Rock for transitioning from WWE to a career in Hollywood.

This criticism occurred during a period of intense rivalry between the two, notably between 2008 and 2009, when Cena remained an active competitor in the wrestling ring.

However, Cena’s perspective shifted after he himself embarked on a Hollywood career. Reflecting on his past views, Cena admitted, “I spent years calling out The Rock, saying man, if you love the business, you should be back. What a f****** hypocrite I am. I love the business and I should be back all the time, but I’m not.”

This self-reflection highlights Cena’s recognition of the challenges and commitments involved in a Hollywood career, the very aspects he once criticised The Rock for embracing.
