With WWE's Battleground pay-per-view on the horizon John Cena has been busy spending the past few days doing the media rounds.

But, whilst this Sunday's highly anticipated match against Kevin Owens has been part of the discussions, there has been a lot of talk too about Cena's role in the upcoming movie Trainwreck.

Setting the record straight

Such talk has had some WWE fans worried that the veteran Superstar might follow in the footsteps of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and quit the wrestling business for Hollywood. John Cena had something to say about that in an interview with MTV UK.

"My life is with WWE. And at 38 years old I tell everybody I feel as strong and as good as ever. I think you can check out Monday Night Raw and watch any US Open challenge and my actions speak for themselves.

"When opportunities like this come up, I’m going to do it for the same reason that Dwayne [Johnson] has done what he’s done."

Company man

John Cena is well aware of The Rock's recent success in conquering the moving business but, rather that looking to following in 'The People's Champs' success, the Boston native justifies his own decision to branch out as all part of the plan to help build brand WWE.

"Him (Dwayne Johnson) being such a success has just gotten more eyeballs on WWE and that’s my goal. So when opportunities like this come up, I'm going to go for it." Cena explained as only a true company man can do.

He was quick to make sure he didn't offend Johnson however, ultimately bestowing the greatest honor on 'The Rock.'

"Unlike Dwayne I won’t take a sabbatical to do so, I take nothing away from his accomplishments – he is the most successful WWE superstar ever.”

Some of the WWE Universe, convinced John Cena's character has stagnated, may be hoping the veteran does retire to the movies. Much to their disappointment, and everyone else's gain, though John Cena appears dead set on winning WWE matches for as long as possible.

Kevin Owens will be the latest to try and stop him in his tracks this weekend.
