Source: The Los Angeles TimesThe Los Angeles Times has a short interview with John Cena about Sunday's WrestleMania PPV, here are some highlights:
Finally facing The Rock after years of calling him out: "People keep saying it has been a one-year build for WrestleMania, but I started calling out Rock in 2005 or 2006. ... I thought it was important to get The Rock involved with the company again. That his involvement could lift us to another level and would remind him of where he came from."
His favorite WrestleMania moment: "Hulk Hogan slamming Andre the Giant. I remember watching WrestleMania with my family and friends on TV ... 93,000 people in the Silverdome. When Hogan picked up Andre, I got goosebumps."
If he could transport any wrestler from history to face at next year's WrestleMania: "Well, it would be hard to top Dwayne this year, but I'd have to say Stone Cold Steve Austin. ... He is one of those guys who had a superhuman level of popularity, and I think we would match up well."
More is contained in the interview, include Cena talking about why kids relate to him and whom he'd first thank if he was inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
