John Cena guest stars on 'Live with Kelly and Michael'
NEW YORK – WWE Universe, don’t miss John Cena on “Live with Kelly and Michael” Monday! The WWE Superstar, who is recovering from elbow surgery, joins the syndicated morning talk show to talk about WWE’s partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure. ( WATCH CENA'S TOUT)
“It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so that’s what Susan G. Komen for the Cure is all about,” Cena said. “It’s something we have to find a cure for. I’m just happy to be doing it. It is a great opportunity to spread the message.” ( MORE ON WWE & KOMEN)
Cena expressed the importance of all WWE Superstars, himself included, taking time out of their busy schedules to spread goodwill to the WWE Universe and beyond.
“There are a million charities out there and we all have the ones that we’re loyal to,” he told WWE.com. “I have expressed my love for Make-A-Wish multiple times. The concept of the charity is amazing.” ( MORE ON CENA & MAKE-A-WISH)
“Being personally affected by cancer in more than one instance — this thing needed to happen, for me,” he said of the Komen partnership. “I’m glad WWE embraced it. I’m glad Susan G. Komen embraced it. It’s fun to be in that position where you can use your voice to send the message and it’s amazing that people will listen.”
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan have a few surprises for Cena on Monday’s show, too. They’ll reveal their own signature finishing moves and even taunt WWE Champion CM Punk.
“In a little bit of a different approach, which surprised the hosts, I tried to be as calm as possible and let them be WWE Superstars,” Cena said. “I think they both could have a career in the ring if they decided.”
Surprisingly, the topic of Super Bowl XLII won’t arise on Monday’s episode. Cena is a diehard New England Patriots fan and the Massachusetts-based team lost Super Bowl XLII to the New York Giants in 2008, when Strahan played defensive end.
“I think the best situation there is just not to bring it up,” Cena joked. “I think if we had enough time, it probably would have gone sour.”
“Hopefully I’ll be back for WrestleMania 29 in Met Life Stadium. I’ll be able to be a little more physical and we can see who the better man really is. Maybe that’s a throw down I’m putting out there right now,” he said, challenging the former NFL player.
“He can throw it back at me, it’s all right,” Cena said. “Or if he wants to take it, he can take it. Sooner or later that conversation is going to come up and I’m going to be ‘Captain Sour Grapes.’ I just hope he doesn’t throw a Super Bowl ring in my face.”
