Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently took part in an interview with MovieFone, in which he discusses topics such as his current acting roles and main eventing this year’s WrestleMania. Below are some highlights:
Now with this incredibly busy slate of action movies, how are you finding time to train for a WrestleMania main event?
You fit it in, that’s what you do. I make sure there’s a ring on location with me, anywhere that I shoot. I had a ring down in New Orleans, when I was preparing for the Madison Square Garden event. I have a ring down in Florida, a ring down in Louisiana; there’s always a ring close by. In order to prep for WrestleMania, it’s a lengthy training camp that requires daily work inside the ring because you can’t simulate the physicality of professional wrestling.
But is your opponent John Cena really going to be that much trouble?
The only trouble he’s going to have is removing my size 15 boot from his ladyparts.
I think that’s what a lot of people wanted to hear.
That’s right — I’m excited about all the projects you just mentioned. I’m excited about WrestleMania; to be able to go back, team up with Vince [McMahon] and make a big vision like that come to life and create the biggest match-up of all time is very special to me. There’s countless matches that have moved me and inspired me, and we’re going to do something very special down in Miami, my hometown, sold-out Sun Life Stadium. Boots to John Cena’s ass.
