Source: The New York PostJohn Cena spoke with Anthony Sulla-Heffinger of The New York Post to promote WrestleMania 29. Here are some highlights:
Sulla-Heffinger: It's been a little cold up here as of late, any concerns that the elements could play a role in Sunday's event?
Cena: I would love nothing more than if it were to be a Lambeau Field type atmosphere. I think that would be fantastic. I think it would be a little difficult for our fans to sit out there, but I've been to MetLife in cold weather, it's a great stadium and I think people will enjoy it no matter what. I hope it's that grizzly wintry mix.
Sulla-Heffinger: As I mentioned before, this is the second time you are facing The Rock. Coming off a defeat, how will Sunday's match be different aside from the title being on the line?
Cena: I think it's very different.
I think a lot of people thought what I thought last year, that it would be the last time we would see The Rock. I really thought that would be my once in a lifetime chance to face The Rock. It was Wrestlemania, it was his home town, I just thought that it would be the last time we would see him.
The day after in Miami he said that not only did he want to be back, but he wanted to be back to compete and to be champion. Rock wanted to usher in a new era, saying John Cena, your time is over, it's my time now.
Sulla-Heffinger: Outside of your match, which Wrestlemania match are you looking forward to the most?
Cena: CM Punk and the Undertaker. Undertaker is a true phenom and he seems to get better every single year. I've been in the ring with CM Punk many times and he says he's the best in the world because he truly believes it.
Sulla-Heffinger: Do you think Punk can end The Streak?
Cena: Yes, I do. Only because of his brash attitude and the fact that he literally swims upstream with everything that he does. He is on Planet CM Punk and the population is one. If there is any wild card in the WWE that can end the streak, it's CM Punk.
Sulla-Heffinger: What is the mood like in the locker room when you have legendary figures like The Rock and Undertaker mingling with the Superstars?
Cena: Interestingly, its split. There are some people like me who appreciate their involvement in Wrestlemania because it needs to be the biggest extravaganza that we give to the WWE Universe.
There are also some that feel as if their Wrestlemania spot has been sacrificed for these future Hall of Famers. I don't understand or agree with it.
This is a very proactive business. We do over 300 events a year, 52 weeks a year, if you want to be in that spot, to be a future legend or Hall of Famer, every week you need to learn. I don't understand any sort of resentment and I think it's very short-sighted.
Cena also discussed if he thinks he'll be in the same class as The Rock and Undertaker in ten years, what WrestleMania week is like and much more. You can read the full interview at this link.
