John Cena and The Rock have dominated the box office and the WWE ring. The two have yet to meet on the silver screen, but Cena is in if they can make it happen.

When asked by Complex if fans will see an on-screen pairing much like we saw at WrestleMania 28 and 29, one where The Rock and Cena share the screen, the 16x World Champion had a very well thought out response.

So, as somebody who enjoys entertainment, I think by you setting that stage I’m immediately intrigued. I feel as if that would be entertaining. There’s a lot more than my opinion to connect those dots, but I think it would be entertaining. So, I’m in.”

John Cena is reportedly set for a return to the ring at SummerSlam where he will face Roman Reigns for the Universal Title. That will be a huge match, but a box office draw with The Rock and Cena on the same bill would be outstanding to watch as well. The Rock is reportedly close to a Survivor Series commitment for WWE.


A lot of things need to happen before a huge film with The Rock and John Cena can be nailed down. For one, they need a story to tell. There are plenty of options, but The Rock and Cena’s incredibly busy schedules will need to align as well.

What’s your take on John Cena and The Rock starring in a movie together? What should the plot be? Sound off in the comments!

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
