Professional Wrestling has been the launch pad for some of the most successful WWE stars turned Actors. There are the two biggest names to have recently made their marks in Hollywood: John Cena and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Let's take a look at the series of works of these two and decide who has had the best acting career.


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is a former WWE Superstar who was the most electrifying man in sports entertainment at the height of his wrestling career. The Rock, out of Hayward, California was the biggest star of the WWE era with the possible exception of Stone Cold Steve Austin. He started his career as an actor through the film The Mummy Returns and then came back to Hollywood by The Fast and the Furious and Jumanji's Welcome to the Jungle.


John Cena


A burly, WWE powerhouse, John Cena is from West Newbury, Massachusetts. He made his name as a professional wrestler before he turned to acting. He noted his involvement in movies like The Marine, Bumblebee, and The Suicide Squad which proved his range in both action and comedy roles.


WWE Careers and Comparisons

A cult figure for wrestling fans, Johnson, also a former collegiate footballer, was one of the most popular figures in his short but storied wrestling career, in league with the storied Stone Cold Steve Austin. He “retired” from wrestling in 2004 to join in the pursuit of acting but his Hollywood path began to gain momentum after Fast Five. His films have often presented him as a straight-faced action hero or an irreverent bad boy, striking a chord with audiences and generating consistent box office returns.


John Cena


Meanwhile, John Cena, though he still wrestles for WWE on occasion, has pursued a clear path to movie stardom. His move to Hollywood started in WWE-produced films such as The Marine before he took to more comedic and action roles with films like Sisters, Blockers, and Fast and Furious. Cena, meanwhile, recently found a similar path to Hollywood success, albeit in his own uniquely Cena way.


Their Motion Picture Careers and Greatest Hits


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
Throughout his career, Johnson has become known as an actor, starring in franchises including "Fast and Furious" and "Jumanji." Though he might not have any Oscars or Golden Globes to his name, he is generally a box office success, proving that he is a bonafide movie star.


John Cena
Thanks in no small part to his comedy and action output, Cena has been a man on the ascent in Hollywood. Blowout roles in Trainwreck, Bumblebee, and The Suicide Squad have demonstrated his range, and bode well for his future adapting directly to the entertainment world.

In the End

When it comes to WWE stars turned actors, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cena are two personalities who have transitioned to successful careers in Hollywood. Although Johnson's Hollywood influence is deeper and longer-lasting, so far, Cena's swift ascension and varied roles suggest, there are even more good things to come.
Ultimately, determining who had the better acting career between The Rock and John Cena is a matter of opinion, as both have done things in the entertainment world. Their pilgrimage from the wrestling ring to the silver screen has certainly captured the imaginations and motives of future wrestlers and actors.
