In an interview with Sky Sports, John Cena is asked to comment on WWE’s Wellness Program, which most notably includes drug testing. While he feels the creation of the program was the right move on the company’s part, he doesn’t feel it was a necessary one as WWE Superstars are regarded as entertainers rather than organized athletes.
“It’s nothing but a positive. I’ll be quite honest with you, it’s a company move that didn’t need to be made,” said Cena. “This is the entertainment industry, we’re not organized athletics. But the WWE made a positive effort to look after its athletes and I’m very, very happy. It was the right move.”
Cena is also asked to comment on his strenuous road schedule and whether it hurts to to “fight at least 250 times a year.”
“I guess it depends on how good you do,” he said. “On average, I would actually compare it to an American football game. It’s very intense. The action is in spurts. We fight every night. We fight Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. So, it’s like playing five American football games in five straight days. I’ve been doing it for eight years and I feel as strong as the day I started.”
