Sports Illustrated is featuring an interview with John Cena where he talks about his contribution to the Make A Wish Foundation and being awarded the 2018 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award this year.
Cena talks about many of these kids attending live events and being quite upset when he loses a match at a live event he is involved with.
“I go and see them after I lose and that’s a great message to send: Hey, don’t worry, I promise you—I promise you—I will get up and be able to keep going. I’ve seen kids break down and cry, and then in a split second turn their emotions to say, ‘Right on, I believe you.'”
Cena also describes how he is in the “definite twilight” of his wrestling career right now with WWE and how he is more than willing to help make the next big star.
“It’s a giant relay race, and I’m in the phase where I’m handing the stick off. My time is up. Someone else’s time is now.”
