With Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn. () LeBron James and Amy Schumer in Trainwreck () Amy Schumer and Kim . John Cena. babae.us talks with WWE Superstar John Cena, mostly about his role in Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer's Trainwreck but also on all. Unless you're watching porn, the sex scenes in movies and tv shows aren't real. But the one staring John Cena in Judd Apatow's new comedy.
Trainwreck (film) - Wikipedia
It was just his ineptness to talk dirty, and then his sexual confusion, which hopefully plays out throughout the movie. Doing those scenes in general are hard, but having to do a funny sex scene must be even harder to kind of keep the comedy going while trying to manage all the other stuff.
CS Interview: WWE Superstar John Cena Slams Amy Schumer in Trainwreck
I will say, it is anything but sexy. It was easily, easily the most awkward, embarrassing moment of my life, being covered up by a very small amount of material in front of an enormous crew of characters. It ended up being just a bunch of people in there. It was very just being out there.
Yeah, and I think the thing that was great about Amy is, and true to form, she can make anything funny. I think when you can laugh, it can take the edge off.

It ended up being a very funny scene, and like I said, it was because of the environment that Amy and Judd created. They just encouraged comedy.
It was different, but at the end of the day, I think it plays very well on screen. Are you surprised at all when you see how the final scenes are edited together? I was on the set for the baby shower thing. They were there all day shooting that one scene, so I saw a lot of different takes. Were you surprised by the final scene when you saw it? You just give your director as much as you can to work with, and hopefully, the decisions they make are going to be great.
In this case, with a great director, they were fantastic. I think it all comes down to perspective. People are always asking me where I find the time for all this.
Oftentimes, WWE lives in its own bubble because it is forever moving. Oftentimes, a motion picture will live in its own bubble because they have a certain amount of time to get everything done. I was a wrestling fan as a kid and I recently got back into it after a long time away.
Then, they film you while you exist. They always want to try to give the audiences as much of their real lives as they can, but it is a commitment. They are followed all the time by everyone. I take my hats off to the cast. It was a bold step to pull the curtain back on the life of the WWE in the first place.
But for them to be coming up on their fourth season now and people become obsessed with their lives. I truly think that obsession grows because of their passion they put into the projects. I kind of wish the Divas had more matches and got more airtime, so hopefully that will change some time. Yeah, I think so.
Do you ever regret not becoming a lawyer? No, I don't regret it at all.
I moved out there maybe 12 years ago or so and was going to go to law school there and go to wrestling school at night, which now, looking back, never would've worked out. That would've been way too strenuous of a schedule.
But the first [goal] was to become a wrestler first and I enjoyed politics and law, so that didn't work out and I still get to talk about it and discuss some things and I'm still really interested in some it, but I focus mostly on my work or get face time somewhere. We have completely different schedules and also completely different lives that we lead. I don't know if I'm going to bump into him at an organic quilters convention or something because I'll be out getting sushi somewhere or having a drink.
Are there any particular spots around the Valley that you enjoy hitting up? Like I said, more often I'll sit in my backyard and just relax and order a pizza or something, but there's so many places. You're billed from Hollywood, Florida, and were born in Cleveland.
Is it widely known you live in Phoenix and do you get big [reactions] from local crowds when you perform here? I mean, literally I'm a man without a real birthplace, I guess.
In Cleveland, a handful of friends and family will know I'm from Cleveland. In Hollywood, [Florida] there's a handful people that know my character's from Hollywood. And then, in Phoenix, most people don't know I live there. So, I don't make it a big deal, but I do live there and I love it.
Usually, Los Angeles is my home away from home, so then a lot of people kind of get that when I'm out here. It's kind of cool. You like to do comedy gigs whenever possible when you're traveling, right? It's like days a year I'm gone doing wrestling shows, but I don't get a chance to hit those open mics 20 or 30 times before you can perfect a joke or perfect a couple minutes.
So a lot of times my open mic time is trying out jokes on my friends or on Twitter or something. But I get up [onstage] any chance I get. Do you ever pop into the local comedy clubs on the days you're in Phoenix? There's a couple different ones that have open mics and there's some on Wednesday nights and I usually sneak in there, at least to watch or get up and do two or three minutes. You've opened for Mick Foley whenever he's been in town, right?
I actually got to do a sketch and a couple minutes of stand-up with Mick before and he kind of left me an open-door invite anytime I'm [free] or when we don't have a show and in town I'm always welcome to do a couple of minutes with him. Very nice of him. And right now I'm out in L. I'm actually working on getting a couple shows done before Hell in the Cell, before we actually get back to Phoenix. Where in the Valley have you performed comedy?
There's actually like five clubs now [in Phoenix] and I've gone to the Tempe Improv before a couple of different times. I bounce around to anything that has a show or an open mic going on as long as I'm in town. I think I'm a born entertainer who likes being on the stage at all times.
So [when] it's stand-up, I just want to get a laugh, I want to entertain, I want everyone to know that I'm good at this, that I've written something that you're gonna like, that it's funny, and it's all about entertainment. It's just like WWE. If you have a good match, everyone's watching and you know you did well.
If you didn't, you got to get back to it and start over again. Are you looking forward to working a program with him? I look forward to anything, any kind of challenge, anybody new coming to the roster, anybody that wants to say, "Hey, I'm better than you" or younger or faster.
