John Cena was interviewed by Sports Illustrated. Cena received the SI Muhammad Ali Legacy Award for his incredible work in philanthropy.
Here are some excerpts from the interview.
Make-A-Wish families writing to him long-after their meetings, with stories of how their child got better or how their child did not, and how their child found a moment of joy with Cena; the effect from that on him:
It will not allow me to have [a negative] perspective on life. We all have bad days, but when I find myself taking a turn down that road, I literally just stop and ask myself, ‘O.K., what’s so bad?'”
When asked about where he’s at in this point in his career, Cena said it’s time to pass the torch.
“It’s a giant relay race, and I’m in the phase where I’m handing the stick off. My time is up. Someone else’s time is now.”
Participating in the 2016 “We Are America” Ad Council video:
As soon as I heard about it, I said yes. There were people saying, are you sure? I said, Yeah, I’m absolutely sure, because this is something that I believe in…. Every once in a while we need to be reminded everyone is welcome here.”
