Throughout his WWE career no matter what he was doing or wearing, Dwayne Johnson always somehow managed to appear the epitome of cool. Given some of the outfits he wore during the Attitude Era, that is quite a remarkable feat. However, it’s fair to say that John Cena’s jean-shorts and trainers combo never quite drew the same love and affection.
Dwayne Johnson and Cena famously met at two consecutive WrestleManias, with their promos heading into both matches hinting at very real animosity between the pair. Although with the matches done and dusted, any real-life issues now appear a thing of the past, with a great deal of personal respect extended both ways. So understandably, the pair can have a little fun at each other’s expense.
Kevin Hart And Dwayne Johnson Have No Love For John Cena’s ‘Jorts’
In recent years Johnson has struck up an unlikely friendship with Kevin Hart, which has resulted in plenty of hilarious moments both on and off camera. The comedian smacking Johnson across the face with a wet tortilla remains a video the internet will never forget.
Back in 2016 there pair were again in playful mood as they were interviewed by Chris Van Vliet ahead of the release of their movie Central Intelligence. In the film Johnson’s character often wears jean-shorts, that famous Cena staple. When asked whether he was wearing the shorts because of his rival, The Rock was quick to downplay his influence. At this Kevin Hart jumped in to mock the “dumb a** shorts.”
“No, I’m wearing jorts because that’s how I roll.” Kevin Hart quickly intervened to mock Cena and his jorts wearing habit. He commented, “That is true. John Cena does wear them dumb a** jorts. Them dumb a** jean shorts. I remember now. They come to like his calf like with a weird hem in them. Cuff ’em up buddy!”
Although Johnson hasn’t wrestled a serious match since his second bout with Cena in 2013 it has long been rumoured that he will be back in action at WrestleMania 39 for a huge showdown with Roman Reigns.
