– John Cena Addresses Criticism Of Him Burying Young Talent
During an appearance on Edge & Christian’s “E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness” podcast, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena addressed the criticism of him burying young talent. Below is what he said:
“If you look at any Superstar, when they get in there with me, they do their best work. And I have this notorious, crazy reputation for burying guys because they get so lost in the shuffle after they’re done with me. I think their perspective is skewed because I bring that out of them, whatever it is they need to find, I bring it out of them.
A lot of these guys that I face are getting the chance to make a name for themselves and after they face me, they can’t recapture the energy and that’s why they get lost in the shuffle, because it comes from creative inspiration. Meanwhile, I get my next opponent and I’m already thinking about crazy things I could do, or say, or act, and I’m on to the next one. And they just wait for that experience to happen again and it doesn’t.”

– Roman Reigns Says He Would Be Happy To Wrestle AJ Styles For The Rest Of His Life
During a recent appearance on In This Corner podcast, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns recalled his feud with AJ Styles for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship back in 2016. Below is what Reigns had to say:
“It’s hard for me to rank all-time best opponents. Do you know what I mean? Like, because I have such a deep respect for all the guys that I’m out there with and for me to rank them, I’d feel weird about that. But I think both AJ and I know what we had going on and we can both say that it was special. And I’ll wrestle AJ for the rest of my life.
I’ll go out on a limb and say that I would have no problems being in that ring with him if you’re like, ‘hey, that’s the only person you’re going to wrestle,’ I’d be like, ‘well, thank you! That’s easy.’ I mean, it really is. If you don’t know by now, if you didn’t know AJ before his coming to the WWE, there’s a reason why he’s in the WWE. There’s a reason why he’s used the way he’s used and it was an absolute pleasure to be in the ring with him.
It was one of those situations I honestly cherish and I’ll never forget those matches we had. I thought our chemistry was incredible from day one in the Royal Rumble. Do you know what I mean? And we had no clue of each other outside just being in that ring and dancing with each other and it was magic.
Hopefully, one day, we’ll do it again. He’s over there on the blue side and that’s important because with his leadership, his tenure, being all around the world and having a deep respect for this business. And like we talked about before, that passion, you can’t fake that.”
