John Cena Sheds Some Light On A Legendary Rivalry!

MOVIE NEWS – John Cena recently spoke about the feud between his Fast & Furious co-stars and his involvement in the franchise…



Although he didn’t join the Fast & Furious franchise until 2021, John Cena, who plays Jakob Toretto in Fast 9, certainly knows a thing or two about the rivalry between the two stars, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel. Cena recently reprised his role as Dominic Toretto’s younger brother in Fast X. His character came to an agonizing end, seemingly signalling Cena’s departure from the long-running action flick.

Granted, the feud between Johnson and Diesel started long before Cena arrived, and the WWE megastar wasn’t the least bit surprised that it happened at all.

Cena appeared on the Armchair Expert with Dax Shepherd podcast. Here, he chatted about life, pankration and showbiz, and opened up about the feud between Diesel and Johnson. When asked about rumours of a feud between the two stars, Cena spoke about their alpha status and pulled a line from Highlander. Check out his comment below.

“There’s certainly rumors about that. I can’t deny that. You have two very alpha, driven people. You get two, there can only be one.”


John Cena’s experience as a wrestler has allowed him to adapt to a changing environment


Having been immersed in the culture of professional wrestling upon his arrival in WWE, Cena is no stranger to being around strong alpha personalities. He went on to talk about being among wrestling veterans during his formative years. He talked about the importance of being able to adapt to any situation. His advice: “know the room”.

“Man, you gotta remember I got dropped into a locker room where [we have] generational vets. ‘What’d your dad do?’ ‘Wrestle.’ ‘What’d your grandfather do?’ ‘Wrestle.’ I’ve been in that environment; know the room and just kind of adapt to what’s going on.”

The feud between Johnson and Diesel reportedly started in 2016 when “The Rock” took to social media during the last week of Fast 8 filming.

While Johnson spoke highly of her female co-stars, she called some of her male colleagues unprofessional “candy asses”. He didn’t name names, Diesel took the statement on himself. The two have since smoothed over their rivalry, with Diesel calling the motivations behind their feud nothing more than “tough love.”

Speaking about joining the franchise with his role in Fast 9, John Cena was humble about the experience. He compared it to being “invited into someone’s home.”

In doing so, he brought respectability to a streak that no one thought would last this long.

“I’m being invited into someone’s home, into someone’s family. And regardless of how they look physically in comparison to another human being, this is one IP that has had nine installments and it’s an action movie — that’s rarefied air. At the very at least, there has to be respect for that.”

Cena, who currently stars in Amazon Prime Video’s Ricky Stanicky, says he never intended to overshadow either Johnson or Diesel by joining the Fast & Furious franchise. “I’m not trying to get the sandbox. That’s not my thing,” he said. “I’m grateful for what you’ve given me, I just want to be the best firetruck I can.”
