When Headlocks Met Hollywood: Tinseltown's Longtime Affair With Wrestling

"I was really impressed with Cena in that ["Wrestlemania"] promo he and JBL did of 'A Few Good Men,' " said Nudelman. "He was really good. It was different than the role [on WWE television] that we normally see him in."

It's debatable how well the WWE-produced films will do, given WWE's failed previous attempts in other non-wrestling ventures such as bodybuilding with the World Bodybuilding Federation (WBF) and the football with the XFL. But Cena wants to show those who may have a close-minded view of wrestlers or forget that "The Rock" rose to prominence as a wrestler that there is talent potential in WWE.

"My short and long-term goals are the same: To let everyone know that WWE is the best sports entertainment company, the best place for live sports entertainment," Cena said. "There are some athletes here. There's a lot of talent here."

Mr. DeMille, I believe Mr. Cena and his friends are ready for their close-up.
