► John Cena did not want to give torch to anyone
During a recent interview with Busted Open Radio, Sensation’s leader addressed the company’s reputation for burying talent, saying that he didn’t want to “pass the torch” to anyone. Cena then used his match against Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39 to further prove his point.
“You don’t pass it to anyone. You just wait to put the energy in and anyone with the ability can get it. It was said that I passed the torch to Roman years ago and he is absolutely the face of the franchise .
In my opinion, he is the greatest of all time. I tried to do what I could, and when I did, it was not a miracle. Like, it didn’t happen. He got it on his own terms.
I just like to see people who are passionate about the business, who want to be there, who want to show up, who don’t use it as a vehicle to do something else because that thing in itself. is amazing. It doesn’t matter if you have other opportunities outside.
It’s a testament to your work, but man, I wish I could be there every day.
So with me, if you put me in that conversation, I could only help the person I was working with while I was working with him. My reputation in salsa while I was at it was that I buried talent because I would really put my whole heart into it.
I sat with Austin Theory for about 10 hours. We don’t waste a day, we invest a day talking about our why, like, what will our story be? I will do this with everyone. I live here My heart is on a plate. But after being with me, they didn’t take that energy with them, I passed it on to the next person.
OK then, who’s next? It was AJ and now it’s Kevin Owens. Okay, ‘Kevin, come here.’ We would sit for two weeks and just talk about things. Then we’re going to go out there and try some crazy things, see what works, and then do our best. Kevin’s done, Sammy, no problem.
What Roman does, just because of his energy being associated with it, attracts a lot of people. That’s something I could never, ever do, period.
Like, you’re with me and when you’re there you get a chance, but a lot of times you go out there to do things that aren’t seen that way, and then the audience’s perception is, ‘My God, they buried it.’ Win or lose doesn’t matter. I haven’t won a fight in five years. It doesn’t matter.”
