John Cena recently appeared as a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on NBC for an in-depth interview.
During his appearance on the popular late night talk show, the future WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about coming up short against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the appearance.
On coming up short against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam: “I had a month off and they [WWE] were like, ‘Hey, you wanna come to work?’ And I was like, ‘Do I?!’ And they said live audiences were back, and I love live audiences.”
On how it felt to be back in the ring after being away for so long: “There is no better feeling than being in front of a live audience,” Cena said. “there really isn’t, and I’m so grateful to have all of you here, I’m so grateful to be back with a live audience. There is no other energy like performing, or entertaining, or telling stories, or just shooting the shit in front of a live audience. So, thank you very much.”
On always being nervous before performing: “Oh man, I’m nervous behind the curtain, like I’m always nervous,” Cena said. “I think if you lose those nerves, if you lose that anticipatory excitement, like, ‘Oh, I don’t know how this is going to go…’ Like, you’ve got to move on, I think you’re done at that point. I think you should always have that energy.”
