WWE RAW star John Cena was interviewed this week by The Boston Globe and said despite its growing popularity, he's not a fan of UFC and mixed martial arts. "It's just not something that particularly interests me," Cena said. "UFC is where boxing was years ago, and I was never really into boxing, either."
Cena says he prefers pro wrestling because it's "regulated entertainment that's safe for anyone to enjoy."
As for UFC ... "It is what it is. It can be pretty over the top, and it's not something I'd want my children to watch."
Cena also spoke about his new movie "Legendary," co-starring Patricia Clarkson and Danny Glover. Cena has played action hero tough-guy roles in "The Marine" and "12 Rounds," but plays a sensitive character in Legendary. "I'm used to dodging bullets and explosions. And this is more of a dramatic piece."
Despite making a few movies already, Cena admits he's still "fairly inexperienced when it comes to cinematic acting" but hopes to continue his acting career."
