John Cena Weighs In On The Dwayne Johnson Vs. Vin Diesel Feud

"Fast & Furious" fans love a good fight, but not when it's between their two favorite family members. Unfortunately, that hasn't stopped the series' superstars Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson from airing out their on-set beef over the past several years. It may be fun when Diesel's Dominic Toretto and Johnson's Luke Hobbs express the shared chip on their shoulders on-screen, but when a similar feud comes to light through the real world's social media and interviews, the magic just seems to drop off. This is especially true since Johnson revealed that he had no intention of appearing in the franchise's tenth, eleventh, and all future installments (via Hollywood Reporter).

While Diesel has made attempts on Instagram to bring Johnson back into the fold, his pleas mostly fall on deaf as where Johnson is concerned. This creates a strange situation for the rest of the "Fast & Furious" crew, who apart from Tyrese Gibson have so far stayed silent. Enter John Cena, the newest addition to the "Fast & Furious" family and, just like Johnson, an ex-WWE superstar-turned actor. Given his history with both Johnson and movies in general, Cena stands to have a unique perspective on the entire affair. Luckily, Cena weighed in on the Diesel-Johnson feud in a recent interview with the "Pardon My Take" podcast.

John Cena takes the middle road between Diesel and Johnson

Despite following a similar career path as The Rock, John Cena refuses to take a strong stance on the Diesel-Johnson feud. You may not be able to see Cena, but as both an actor and ex-wrestler, he can certainly see both sides.

"I don't think that story is about taking sides," Cena said. "That story is about hearing everybody's perspective and it is a story where, me as a fan of the franchise, I'd love the franchise to get together for this last run. I hope they call me to be in it but when someone says professional, they want to go in another direction, if you say anything other than, 'okay,' it's their professional opinion to make the choice that they want. I think that's very brave and very honest. So I think Vin's perspective has a lot of gravity and honesty and I think Dwayne's perspective has a lot of gravity and honesty."

While Cena's position on the matter is certainly diplomatic and respectable, there is one issue with it. It doesn't do very much to actually fix the ongoing feud. However, it is possible that this is a conflict that taking the middle ground simply can't fix. Either that, or it may not be Cena's place as their co-star to try and bridge the gap.
