In a podcast with Sports Illustrated's Jimmy Traina, John Cena spoke candidly about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, stating he does not like the way he does business.

"I congratulate him on all his success," Cena told Traina. "A Hall of Fame resume in the WWE. His movies have grossed more that a billion dollars, but if it was my career path I would have just done it differently."

Cena said he doesn't like the "coming and going" and The Rock should have just stayed in Hollywood. Cena referenced interviews and magazine covers where Johnson stated The Rock is dead and he's never going back to that life.

The entire interview was very good and if you want to know more about the inter-workings of the real life relationship between Cena and The Rock, you need to give this a listen.

Since this feud began a year ago, I have received tons of e-mails asking if there is legit heat between the two stars. Last year, my answer was no. Four months ago, my answer was 'they don't hate each other, but they don't love each other either. It's probably some where in the middle.' The last few weeks, my answer is that there's legit heat.

Traina asked Cena about The Rock being very distant with the other wrestlers backstage, citing an interview he did with CM Punk recently. According to Traina, Punk said The Rock stays to himself and Cena confirmed it.

The interview also touched on Cena discussing Peyton Manning's neck surgery as the former WWE champ underwent the same surgery a few years ago, being the face of the WWE, the crazy road schedule and much more.
