John Cena, the actor turned wrestler, has shared his thoughts on why he chose to enter the professional wrestling world.
The former WWE Champion talked on Logan Paul’s “Impulsive” podcast about his training as a wrestler in the late 1990s.
‘This is the hobby I want to have,’ is how I realized it,'” Cena said. “I compare it to your softball league or anything you strive for each week. Though he loves his boat, my younger brother despises his work. To get out on the sea, he puts up with the ick. I was about to make a career move that would not have been possible if I hadn’t found that ring. And I was just going to return home if it didn’t work out. I was simply failing at everything in life, and I was running out of money and time.”
Although Cena said that he was clueless about what to do at the time, he was aware that he has the necessary skills to be successful in professional wrestling. To the surprise of the former WWE Champion, Cena’s acquaintance revealed that he trained in Orange County the weekend he was thinking about starting a career in the industry. Cena leaped at the opportunity to practice in the ring right away. He continued by saying that in order to be able to perform on Friday and Saturday nights, he was ready to work any job at that time.
He eventually came to realise that professional wrestling was a viable career choice when, at the height of the Attitude Era, he was offered a $12,500-per-year contract by WWE. In order to further his career in the WWE, Cena ultimately decided to leave his day job and move inside his automobile.
