John Cena on playing a villain in “Bumblebee” and if he would ever turn heel in WWE

ComicBook.com is featuring an excerpt of an answer from WWE star John Cena when he was asked about playing a villain in the upcoming “Bumblebee” movie.

Cena, who took to the streets in San Diego during Comic Con dressed as the Bumblebee character, discussed the contrast of playing a villain in a movie and good guy in WWE.

“To actually answer your question, I think it is a really great opportunity. I have had a great career in the WWE and for that entire time I have been the good guy and that kind of went into my films so far, and now it doesn’t seem like my character in the WWE will ever evolve into that bad guy role that perhaps a lot of people have wanted; so this is kind of a way for my fans from that aspect of my career to see that side of me. So, don’t expect heel John Cena in the WWE – that’s Inside Baseball talk for some of you – but it means bad guy John Cena isn’t happening there, so this is that chance for me.”
