John Cena admits he was wrong making ‘allegations’ against The Rock over Hollywood move

In a recent press conference, John Cena says he can '100 percent see and understand' why people think he's a hypocrite.

WWE legend John Cena has admitted that he was wrong for making 'allegations' over The Rock's move to Hollywood.

Dwayne Johnson decided to ditch WWE for an acting career back in 2004, and it's safe to say he certainly made a name for himself in Hollywood since then.

Nonetheless, many criticized The Rock for ditching wrestling, including John Cena, who was not exactly happy to see his co-star leaving the sport.

This led to years of beef between pair, which Cena has since admitted was fuelled by Johnson's decision to ditch WWE for a lucrative career in Hollywood.

Earlier this year, Cena did admit to being 'selfish' during the feud, adding that he was 'short-sighted' all them years ago.

Of course, the 46-year-old has took a similar path to Johnson in recent years, deciding to call it quits on WWE for a career in acting.

As per Variety, Cena told press recently that he can '100 percent see and understand' why people have labelled him a hypocrite and how they call him out for following in Johnson's footsteps despite criticizing such a move in the past.

But first speaking about the long-running feud, Cena told those in attendance at a press conference for WWE Fastlane: "If you’ve been following what I’ve tried to do, especially as of late, publicly and personally to Dwayne Johnson, I’ve stated that although I thought I was trying to do what’s best for business.

"I went about it the wrong way. I violated his trust and I made allegations about his perspective that I knew nothing about.

"And deep down, I was a fan. I wanted The Rock back [in WWE]. I wanted to do anything to get The Rock back, but I did it the wrong way."

Cena added: "I didn’t do it the respectful way, so I had to eat a little bit of crow. I had to say ‘I’m sorry and I was wrong,’ because I am sorry and I was wrong, and that’s a very humbling experience.

"Dwayne is a hell of a guy… I became who I despised. I see that perspective and I understand it. It was a great learning experience from my mistake with feuding with The Rock."

While he may have made the same move, Cena's career in Hollywood is currently on hold due to the recent SAG-AFTRA writer's strike.

So, to pass the time, the WWE star has decided to return to his roots for the Fastlane event.

However, his return in old territory won't be for long as Cena has admitted he'll return to Hollywood once the strikes have been resolved.

"I made it perfectly clear you can’t do both because of the liability insurance," he told press.

"If I were trying to juggle both that’s very selfish because I’d put a whole lot of people in the movie business out of work if something happened to me."
