John Cena was interviewanded by GQ Magazine about his top spot in the wrestling business, transitioning his focus to projects outside of WWE and more. You can read it by going here

When asked about about the negative fan reaction John gets, Cena said the following:

“Because I’ve been in it so long, and if you look at (“The Rock” Dwayne Johnson), he had tremendous success in the WWE, but his success was short-lived when he left full-time for Hollywood. I think he had to do a tremendous switch, but I know he had the ultimate goal for coming back to the WWE and making it a better place,” Cena told interviewer Jake Woolf.

“But for me, at this point, so much of our audience loves me, and so much hates me, I kind of just realize I am who I am, and I am John Cena, I’m not ‘The Rock.’”

“At my age, I’m not trying to score cool points. I’m just excited when I can speak to younger members of our audience in the WWE. I just get to be a superhero to kids, but I’m not trying to be on the cutting edge of style or anything like that. Once you reach that point of deprivation, you don’t mind it.”

When asked whether he would do another rap album, John said the following:

“That’s a young man’s game,” Cena said. “If you’re gonna expect music, it would be a soul, R&B, ratpatck type of thing. Maybe classic. Every once in a while I’ll listen to hip-hop, but it’s all stuff from the ’90s. I’m kind of out of touch with everything,” he added.

At this point, Cena is just happy to be included in pop culture through Twitter memes.

“When pop culture is kind enough to let you in, exploit you, and in a lot of cases make fun of you, and you’re just gonna be the vehicle to push this new gag, I totally embrace it,” Cena said. “Whether it’s in praise or total humor, I don’t care. Just to be accepted at this point in my career, I think it’s pretty special.”

Stephanie McMahon announced on Twitter that WWE received the first ever “Golden Boot” award from the USO:
