IGN.com and Matt Fowler interviewed The Rock to talk about the long-term plans of working with John Cena and his new TV show The Hero. Here are some highlights: The Rock on his long-term plans with John Cena: ”You have to understand that my return back into the WWE was years in the making. And since I’ve been back, it’s been a three year-long journey that started at WrestleMania 27 in Atlanta. So, John has always been my first choice (to work with).” The Rock on how he wanted to work with someone he could do big business with: ”Here’s the thing. The question was that if I was going to go back in the WWE, how could I go back and make the most impact? With who can I headline WrestleMania in that company and make the most impact? And the bottom line is that it continues to be John Cena. Just in terms of, and we’ll use a Hollywood term here, box office appeal. Universal appeal. Athletic pairing. So there are a lot of reasons.” The Rock on how he wants to give back to the business and help elevate Cena: ”What I’m talking about is being able to go back to theWWE and give back to the business, which is in my blood and has allowed me a platform to perform which then, 12 years ago, allowed me to make he transition to Hollywood. So the scenario I’ve dreamed of is that I’m able to go back, become WWE champion, go into the what is considered the biggest marketplace in the world, which is the New York City area, at MetLife Stadium and headline WrestleMania as champion and give back to the business, the fans, the company, and their number one hero. So I couldn’t have asked for a better scenario and we’re going to have a blast.” The Rock’s thoughts on his match with Cena at Wrestlemania 29: ”I think we’re going to have a great match and my hope is that it’s going to be a classic.”
