John Cena explains why he brought Dr. of Thuganomics to WWE WrestleMania

WWE’s YouTube channel has released this video of John Cena Cena talking to Cathy Kelley about making a surprise appearance with his “Dr. of Thuganomics” gimmick for a segment with Elias at Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ.

Cena mentioned that he wasn’t supposed to be at the show but wanted to do something that would be a nice surprise and a bit of entertainment.

“The idea came up and I immediately said yes. I know I kind of look ridiculous and I’m in the 2004 way back machine. But I think it was really special and it was done all in the good heart of entertainment.”

He praised Elias for putting on a really creative performance but he didn’t want to take time away from the stars working on the show so they only had a few minutes. Cena brought up how he felt that it was a fun surprise for the fans in attendance.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do after this, but I just wrapped a movie on Thursday.” Cena talked about he didn’t want to do anything via a satellite so when WWE “recommended me to do this and I thought it was a great idea.”
