John Cena On How Fans Would React If He Turned Heel

John Cena was recently interviewed by Digital Spy to discuss his new movie, Ferdinand. Below are a couple of highlights:

Fans wanting him to turn heel:

"So many times in WWE, the audience tells me at the top of their lungs that they want me to change. But over the years I've learned that, if I change, they'll just rag on me about something else. I'm never gonna please them and, at the same time, I would be turning my back on those that I care about. So it couldn't have been a better situation for me to be involved with this movie."

There being more to him than his wrestling character:

"I am a 40-year-old adult there's a man behind the hand. I wouldn't be where I'm at if it wasn't for this [the hand] and I have great perspective of that. I wouldn't be where I'm at if it wasn't for those things. But it's always a challenge to let people know that there's a little more to me."

Cena also discussed starring in WWE Studios' The Marine, the message in Ferdinand being relevant and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
