WWE Superstar and sure-fire Hall of Famer John Cena recently appeared on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast. The ‘Cenation’ leader would discuss a litany of topics regarding modern day WWE during the interview. One of the more intriguing topics Cena discussed was his notorious ‘spot calling’ in matches.
John Cena on Sounding ‘Apathetic’
“You talk to anybody who’s worked with me, it’s like, Alright, we have 26 minutes and the kids gonna go over” John Cena began. “‘Okay. Thanks. ‘Hey John, what do you want to do?’ I don’t know. And they have so many people that I’m able to perform with for the first time, they take that is apathy. That I don’t care.”
“Loudest talker in the business”
Cena elaborated further, saying “but then when I’m out there I’m notoriously the loudest talker in the business. I’m calling matches for you [Corey Graves] at the table, expect in the ring. But that’s only because I’m like, I’m super hyper present. Because I’m there to entertain everybody who paid money. And if I plan a labyrinth of execution with you in the back and we go out to crickets? We got to be able to switch.”
“The absolute finite definition of a professional sports entertainer, is the ability to play jazz.”
Cena finished by saying “I kind of know myself, and I also know the skills of the person that I’m working with. And it’s, I think that the absolute finite definition of a professional sports entertainer, is the ability to play jazz. Go out and absolutely improvise and ride the wave of the crowd that’s in front of you, they will tell you what they want. ”
