John Cena Fired From WWE, Potential Strikeforce Superfight With Bautista Upcoming? - Watch Kalib Run
I hope this isn't true, I had enough of these WWE guys coming to MMA.On last night's WWE PPV "Survivor Series", John Cena (as special guest referee) did not fulfill his obligation and thus has been fired by Wade Barrett. Cena, a 33 year old, 10 year pro, had a career in bodybuilding before transitioning to wrestling back in 2001.
Though Cena does not have any amateur background in any combat sports like his former fellow wrestler Brock Lesnar, he hopes his mantra of "Hustle. Loyalty. Respect." will lead to him becoming a passable MMA fighter.
"I wasn't that good a rapper, but I hustled and got a deal. I wasn't that good of a wrestler, but I earned respect and became a champion. Now I look to take all of that and become the best cage fighter I can be," said Cena of his prospective MMA career.
"I retired him," Cena reminded us, in regards to Dave Bautista, referring to their WWE match earlier this year. "I beat him while wrestling and I think I can beat him in the cage. I'd like to see if we can get that put together, I'm not an old man, but time is of the essence."
