The Rock and John Cena mentored WWE star Becky Lynch for Hollywood career after she was offered role in Billions – The SunJanuary 6, 2021
BECKY LYNCH revealed that WWE legends The Rock and John Cena helped mentor her burgeoning Hollywood career.
The former RAW Women's Champion became the latest wrestler to try their hand at acting after appearing in American drama Billions.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson became one of the most recognisable faces on the planet during the WWE Attitude Era days in the 1990s.
He soon morphed into the trailblazer for making the switch to Hollywood to star in blockbuster franchises such as the Fast & Furious films.
John Cena has since followed suit after asserting himself as WWE's top talent and Lynch said the duo offered her advice and guidance on navigating the camera outside the ring.
She told TMZ Sports in May: "[The Rock has] actually he's been very helpful in guiding me.
"He's just being very giving and I think they all are because they've all been there and they're all ready to look after the next generation.
"Cena's also been so great to me and so generous with his time and his advice, checks up on me on what I'm doing now. I think everybody wants to see the next generation move to where they've been, ya know?!"
Rock and Cena are two of WWE's greatest acting successes, with Dave Bautista also gaining mainstream appeal for his role as Drax in the Marvel Universe.
But other wrestlers have struggled to learn the ropes of the film industry, with Triple H starring in the critically-panned Blade III and The Chaperone.
[The Rock has] actually been very helpful in guiding me. Cena's also been so great to me and so generous with his time and his advice.
Olympic Gold Medallist Kurt Angle also struggled to recover from 2009's Endgame and the 2011 horror River of Darkness alongside Kevin Nash.
But Lynch – who is currently sidelined after giving birth to first daughter Roux in December – reassured fans that regardless of how successful her acting stint goes, she is not planning to leave WWE any time soon.
The Irish Lasskicker added: "Look, I just love performing. I love being able to get it out there, but I also love a crowd. So, as long as I can wrestle, then I'm going to be doing that."
