ESPN has an interview with John Cena, who was promoting this Sunday's WrestleMania pay-per-view. During the interview, Cena was asked if there was backstage resentment with the Rock working a part-time schedule while being the WWE Champion.

"No, because that was my whole base of resentment last year. I really thought he was coming back for maybe a yearlong campaign to remind people, 'Hey guys, I have some new movies coming out,' and he wanted to let the WWE fan base know that he was still around. But he came back, he stayed back, and he's competing. Even if he's not on every Monday Night Raw, you have to understand, this guy is the most driven individual I know. The fact that he can do what he can do and still compete in the ring -- go film a commercial, go film five movies, go film a TV show and then come back and not leave WWE on the back burner, but still be the champion -- it's admirable. He's doing more for WWE by trying to do both those things at once and being on Raw some of the time, than focusing on WWE and being there 100 percent of the time. Just like I have my critics, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has critics, and I was one of the biggest 'Hey man, you're never here' guys around, but not anymore. He's completely committed to WWE."

Cena also discussed why he won't turn heel, if he'll bring the spinner belt back, the most memorable WrestleMania match of all time and more. You can read the full interview at this link.
