Bill Pritchard

John CenaWWE Superstar John Cena recently talked to AZCentral.com about this weekend's Royal Rumble pay-per-view, which takes place in Phoenix, Arizona. Cena talked about his thoughts going into the Royal Rumble event, some of his work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and more. Below are a few excerpts from the question and answer part of the interview:

If he trains harder for the Rumble:
No, because we have so many events every year. It’s kind of standard fare to us, but the Royal Rumble is special because it signifies the road to WrestleMania.

How meaningful the Royal Rumble is to a WWE Superstar:
Absolutely. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done. Winning the Royal Rumble is as big an accomplishment as anything.

On his work with Make-A-Wish:
"WWE has a very strong affiliation with Make-A-Wish, and we can provide a great experience. It’s extremely flattering that for one wish a family would like to hang out with you. There’s nothing more flattering than that."

If he gets choked up or emotional while granting wishes:
"No, I have a lot of fun with the charity. The only time I ever get choked is when I’m at Make-A-Wish headquarters, because you’re talking and working with people who share the same ideals."
