Slam Wrestling has an interview up with WWE Champion John Cena. Here are some of the highlights.
On winning the WWE Championship at Breaking Point:
“Now, obviously, my plate is a lot bigger. It’s just more responsibility. When you win it for the first time, I think it’s the satisfaction that you finally did it. But then the very next day you realize, okay, it’s just starting. Now, having success for a sixth time, I know what’s in store, not only from a brand standpoint and what’s going to happen on WWE, I certainly will be in for some new challenges, but for instances such as this, I know my schedule will be completely full, just because of the fact that everybody wants to be able to interview the champ.”
If there is talk in WWE about the Danielson/McGuinness signings:
“Certainly, if the locker room remembers that Velocity match a long time ago, they’re much more of the historian category than I am. We’re always happy to get any sort of talent. I think Bryan will be a wonderful acquisition for the program, as well as any of our developmental superstars.”
On new talent emerging on WWE TV:
“You’re seeing a lot of new faces on WWE programming. It really is. It is about time for it, I’ll be the first to say. If we’re going to carry this wave of popularity into the next five, 10, 15 years, we need our young guys, our new faces, to step up now.”
Who he sees being the next big star in WWE:
“It’s tough to say, and the good news is that the company is not clearly behind one person. They’re kind of spreading themselves out to see who works out. Between Miz, between Morrison, between Sheamus, between Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, Kofi Kingston, there are so many guys that are getting a shot — finally. It’s just good to see a lot of people getting a shot at once rather than the company firmly backing one individual.”
