What an irony- veteran WWE superstar John Cena who has achieved worldwide fame for his mighty moves inside the ring, has admitted that he doesn’t watch the wrestling matches on TV. According to the champion, the WWE shows are mostly enjoyed by kids from ages 6-10.
In fact, Cena also added in his interview that he himself altered his very wrestling style in the initial phase of his career to specifically make his matches more appealing to little children. This is some kind of a grand revelation when it is coming from a WWE superstar.
Cena was recently at a promotional campaign where he disclosed this secret. The promotional campaign was for a latest merchandising effort from WWE where the champ plays a major part. The campaign has been organized by a collaboration in between prime WWE wrestlers & the famous more than 5 decades old cartoon giant The Flintstones. The result is a full-length animation film named “The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown” which was released on 10th March on Blu-Ray & DVD disc. The film shows iconic characters from Flintstones & WWE- inspired characters like John Cenastone that are voiced by pro real-life wrestlers themselves.
Erstwhile WWE champ CM Punk has lent his voice for CM Punkrock, one among the villains of the film. Cena was asked questions on whether WWE is losing out on popularity with adult audience.
“I do not usually spend time watching shows preferred by 6 to ten year old kids. I am mostly interested in various racy comedy & story lines. However, I won’t offend anybody in the audience & hence I always put forward My level best & I do relish being a superhero in real-life as well as some inspirational character in the live entertainment sphere & animated films such as Flintstones”, remarked Cena.
