During an interview with Premium Blend, John Cena discussed how The Rock’s success has helped both Batista and himself avoid being typecast in Hollywood. Here’s what he had to say:
It definitely has changed, and I think that rests on the already broad shoulders of Dwayne Johnson, He just made it acceptable to be something other than your wrestling persona. If you look at the correlation of wrestlers or WWE personalities in movies, they essentially played extensions of their WWE personality. I think Dwayne was one of the first ones to break that mold, and do it on such a grand scale that he couldn’t be ignored … Typecasting takes a lot of attempts to unwire, and Dwayne has, through the legacy that he’s built, he’s made it easier for all of us.
