– The Rock recently spoke with Cleveland.com about facing John Cena at WrestleMania 28, returning to wrestle for WWE and more. From the embedded video below, here’s some of what Rock had to say about Cena:

“Coming back into this world, I felt like I needed something real to sink my teeth into as a performer. [This is] very real. Whatever Cena has said in the past publicly, three or four years ago, I always remembered it. Then, that gave us a nice launching point. It’s not personal. I don’t personally hate John, I don’t hate anybody but the tension is nice and real and I like it. I think it plays well into what we’re doing at WrestleMania. People feel that. I don’t have to be your friend, I don’t want to be your friend. But when we go out there, let’s entertain the people.

But that tension is very palpable and it’s nice and real. I’ve come close a couple of times to slapping the lips off his face. It’s OK. I like his lips where they’re at for now. [Laughs.]”

TheWrestlingPress.com scribe Maurice Kneisel recently essayed Dolph Ziggler’s unique ride to the top ranks of WWE, with Dolph himself discussing key moments such as his 11 minutes 23 seconds as World Champion:

“As much as it was fun to be in that match and become the champion, losing it a few minutes later is nothing against my legacy. I’m looking forward to proving myself and showing that I can be a long-term champion.”

Ziggler also revealed his confusion at receiving boos from the WWE Universe just a short time ago:

“I understand that I’m not well-liked, but I love going out there and proving that I’m better than everyone else every single night.”

The interview is part of the final edition of The Wrestling Press magazine, also included in this issue are articles on John Cena, Nigel McGuinness (Desmond Wolfe), Gorilla Monsoon, WWE in 2011, and more.
