Gene Guillot of The Times-Picayune is featuring an interview with newly crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena who talks about wanting to put more importance on the WWE’s version of the World Heavyweight Championship.

Cena added, “This is not taken as a shot of disrespect to anyone who has held the title before me, but it’s now viewed as a second-tier championship. (Defending it at WrestleMania 30) will truly put a stamp on making it the real deal. I want the WWE universe to realize that it’s not a second-tier championship. It should be treated with as much respect as the WWE Title.”
