While receiving the American Riviera award Santa Barbara International Film Festival, actor Mickey Rourke took part in a post ceremony discussion where the subject of Wrestlemania 25 came up. Rourke was quoted as saying "My people suggested it might not be a wise career move." He did say he wanted to do the match, but of course reconsidered when his agents advised against it.
John Cena recently did an interview with SI.com, and when the subject of his finisher name came up he had the following to say: "It was totally my call. It’s actually Attitude Adjustment. I realize that our audience has changed now and when I look out past the ring now I see so many children. Originally the FU was a pun in response to Brock Lesner’s move, he used to wrestle in the WWE. I never really called it that. It’s something I said once and the announcers picked it up. I know that kids are watching my every move and there are a lot of parents know their kids look up to me and I know a lot of people watch our program with closed eyes and I kind of live by the motto — "Hustle Loyalty Respect." If someone is out of line, I think instead of giving them an FU, it’s better to give them an attitude adjustment."
