CM Punk praised WWE Superstar John Cena’s acting abilities, saying the Peacemaker star is “crushing it” in Hollywood and “he is not surprised”.
CM Punk made an appearance on ET Canada and was seen admiring his old WWE rival. Punk expressed his appreciation for Cena’s excellent acting skills and remarked that he was not surprised.
“One hundred percent [I’m impressed], but I’m also not surprised,” Punk says. Punk then continues saying, “I believe many people confuse the two. You see someone like Dave Bautista crushing it in a variety of positions. Dave can do humor, drama, and anything in between. Cena has always been the funny one.”
Punk then explains why he always knew Cena was a good actor and thought he will make a good actor in Hollywood. Punk said “Cena has always been that funny guy. I always thought that behind the scenes, and I think anybody who has worked with him always thought it.”
He then says all wrestlers are an actor in some way and explains it further. “A lot of the guys at that top level in WWE may not want to admit it, but all we are are theatre actors. We’re doing live theatre every Monday, Friday, Thursday, and Tuesday, depending on what the hell the schedule is right now. That’s all there is to it. It gets you used to improvising and adapting on the spot.”
