During a recent interview conducted for CBS Radio by Chad Dukes, WWE star John Cena had the following to say about his real life animosity towards The Rock:
"The problem I have with Dwayne is the problem I’ve always had — you say you dig the gig, then f’n show up. That’s the animosity I think a lot of our guys have.
Showing up for the important (dates) is fine, but when you show up for the important ones don’t act like you were never gone. Here’s a guy who’s been gone for seven years, comes back and the first thing he says a year ago is, ‘I’m never leaving again and I love this place.’ Dude, you just got back off a seven-year hiatus."
On the subject of Cena calling out The Rock's promo notes written on his wrist, the article reads:
So, when the former champion from West Newbury, Mass. saw that The Rock was having a hard time leaving the scripted world of Tinseltown behind and had written talking points on his forearm, he seized the moment and cut perhaps the most memorable promo in their build toward WrestleMania.
“That was something I saw right there. I wouldn’t have even said anything if I didn’t see it,” Cena recalled. “When I watch TV and I’m in the ‘Gorilla Position,’ which is right before you go through the curtain, and they have a TV there… I couldn’t believe it. Once I saw it the words became bigger and larger and his body was covered in words. It was like, I couldn’t ignore it. It became like the giant mole on the face. I had to.”
