For those dreaming of having WWE wrestler John Cena come to the world of MMA, keep dreaming.
In town for a taping of “Monday Night Raw” at the TD Garden in Boston, Cena told The Boston Globe, “It’s just not something that particularly interests me.’’ He also stated, “UFC is where boxing was years ago, and I was never really into boxing, either.’’ He prefers professional wrestling because it’s “regulated entertainment that’s safe for anyone to enjoy.’’ And the UFC? “It is what it is,’’ he said. “It can be pretty over the top, and it’s not something I’d want my children to watch.’’
Well, it goes to show that John Cena, as much as he portrays a tough guy in the ring, wouldn’t risk that image in the cage. Cena seems like a conservative when it comes to MMA, but wrestling is just as ‘over the top’, if not more than MMA, with certain angles and storylines. What do you think – Is UFC, MMA in general, ‘over the top’?
