Recently, the former World Champion sat down for an interview with a prominent wrestling-based interviewer Chris Van Vliet where he talked about his role in F9, WWE return, and other WWE-related stuff. Vliet first asked if Cena is missing his in-ring gear and if he would love to get back in his iconic jean shorts and jorts.

Vliet asked, “You are always dressed so well every time I see you, and I appreciate that. When was the last time you wore jean shorts?”

Cena replied, 

“The last time was not this WrestleMania but last WrestleMania. I can tell you this, I very much look forward to wearing jorts again, it’s been too long.”

Will Cena turn heel upon his WWE return?

WWE Rumors & News: As Cena is nearing his WWE return, rumors are making rounds that the former World Champion will turn heel for the first time in his decorated WWE career. Cena has been one of those stars who have never turned heel. He gave a glimpse of his heel side at Wrestlemania 35 when he donned his ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’ avatar and attacked Elias in the ring. However, that was just a one-off segment that couldn’t justify the heel persona.

Cena is playing a negative character in F9.- This made the interviewer ask if he is close to a heel turn in WWE? Cena replied,

“I think this is a beginning to showcase the fact that it’s possible. Now as WWE invests and builds its roster and has a wealth of talent, and truly has many different anchors to the ship now, certainly Roman being a very marketable and definitive star, I think the reason for me not exploring that side is because the WWE didn’t feel confident that they had an alternative. I respect that business choice. I really do. But now, with them really laying the foundation for their future, even for the next decade or so, maybe, I don’t know, but what I do like about ‘Fast’ is that I’m a human being like everyone else. I experience anger, sadness, bitterness, resentment, all those emotions like we all do, and I’m given a forum to display it. Just like Trainwreck, I’m always known for my childish comedy in WWE because it’s a PG show. Then if I’m put on an R-rated comedy, everybody is like, ‘Wow, he actually cusses.’ Yea, of course, it’s an R-rated comedy. It’s like being able to get a new set of tools and work with those tools.”
