Austin Theory, a big star of the wrestling scene, spoke with Sportskeeda about a topic that is almost unavoidable when it comes to Theory. Many compare Austin to John Cena, and he reacted to such things: “I am not the John Cena of this generation.
I am the Austin Theory. That’s all there is. John Cena, you know, you can put me in that category if you want, but it’s probably because I’m excelling at such a fast rate and people can see it, but I’m certainly going to excel past that.
I’m 25. How many championships did John Cena have at 24, because I was the United States Champion at 24. He didn’t have any. So just putting that into perspective, there’s only one Austin Theory. But as we are approaching WrestleMania, as we are talking about John Cena, I will be in TD Garden in Boston.
I will make sure that I’m in his face and I get to show him all the respect he deserves in the middle of that ring on my show, Monday Night Raw, come this Monday. ”- Theory said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Austin Theory on John Cena
Theory has huge respect for Cena and all that he has achieved in his career.
“It’s almost like nobody gets the message here. Everybody loves relating to the past. Everybody loves bringing back the old legends. They love bringing them back and letting them live their glory days. That’s what it’s all about, and it’s not.
It’s not about that. So why not point out the guy that literally has carried the WWE well over a decade for sure. Somebody that even if you don’t watch WWE, you know who John Cena is. Even before the Hollywood, you knew who he was.
There’s no bigger mountain than John Cena and that’s exactly why I need to pay my respects to him on Monday, and that’s what I’m gonna do”.
