John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company on his back throughout the PG era. Cena has also become one of the mainstays of Hollywood in the last couple of years. It seems John Cena explained the difference in stunts for WWE and Peacemaker.
John Cena’s role as the Peacemaker certainly won him over with the fans. So much so, that he currently has his own Peacemaker spinoff series. In fact, the spinoff is DC’s best-reviewed project to date.
The show concluded its first season recently, as fans were certainly happy with how season 1 wrapped up its story. In fact, the first season even broke a huge HBO Max streaming record as well.
While speaking to PEOPLE about his Peacemaker spinoff, John Cena talked bout the difference in stunts for the show and also in WWE, adding that they are completely different.
“No, it’s completely different. Movie coordinator stunt performers are massive amounts of repetition not only through practice, but through performance as well. Whereas you can practice your craft in WWE, but once you’re out there live, it happens once and there really is no wrong. It just is. There’s also no enormous, energetic, unbelievable crowd cheering you on as you do all this stuff and it has to be done from many angles and many perspectives. It’s nuts. I remember when I started to do movies in 2004, ’05, and really got frustrated with the process because as a young man, I really wanted to be in that ring as there really isn’t much of anything that compares to the sensation of being in that ring performing in front of a live audience, for me. it’s not the same. I’ve found a much greater appreciation for it now. Maybe that’s because I’m working with great people and I’m a part of fantastic stories. I’m finding my stride as a performer but it’s very different and if given the choice, I think 10 times out of 10 I would rather be in a ring performing action than on the screen performing action.”
Peacemaker was already renewed for a second season on HBO Max even before the first season concluded. Cena recently stated that he would love to have The Rock in the Peacemaker’s second season, so we wonder if that will end up happening or not.
