John Cena always wanted to play a bad guy. Throughout his WWE career, they never let him turn on the good guys, but Fast 9 will see a brand new side of the 16x World Champion.

Vin Diesel’s character in the Fast Franchise has battled a few notable foes including those played by The Rock, Jason Statham, and Charlize Theron. While John Cena prepares for his big debut in the Fast 9 film, he has big expectations.

John Cena recently told Collider that his villain in the Fast 9 film will be the best baddie in the history of the famous car-filled franchise.

“I certainly didn’t overlook the responsibility of the opportunity. I get to reap the rewards of this family who has poured the foundation and built the structure of a global delivering blockbuster. I get invited into the ninth installment to share the last name Toretto and to be Dom’s greatest adversary of all time. That is not lost. I think it has to start there. It has to start with respect. It goes back to what Justin says about earning your next chapter. I believe that’s a nice metaphor for life, as well. Everything we get should be earned. I was grateful enough to develop a relationship with Vin, and Vin was gracious enough to give me a chance. I forever thank him, and I always do, for betting on me.”

The upcoming film directed by Justin Lin, will see Cena starring as Jakob, Vin Diesel’s on-screen brother. It was a very hard task to find the perfect man to play that role. In the end, Diesel is convinced that Paul Walker sent John Cena to them.
