Seth Rollins recently touched on his relationship with John Cena, as well as stating that he sees him as the greatest ever.
Rollins and Cena have met in the ring a number of times. The most notable moments were in Cena’s feud with the shield, as well as when Rollins defeated Cena at Summerslam 2015 to win the United States Championship and hold it simultaneously with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Seth Rollins spoke about Cena with Pro Wrestling Illustrated at a recent WWE 2K23 event. He held high praise for John, reminiscing on the effect Cena has had on his career.
“John’s the GOAT, man. John’s the best John is incredible. I’m a footnote, really, in his career, you know, John influenced so many talents over the years. He was a generational guy. For me, though, on the other side of that, John influenced what I do so heavily. I took a ton of inspiration from John, I learned a lot being in the ring with John, and I learned a lot watching John behind the scenes. John still is a mentor to me, even now that he’s not around that often.”-Seth Rollins
John Cena will have the spotlight in 2K23’s installment of the “showcase” mode, and Rollins is glad to see John getting his shine.
“So it’s awesome to see him portrayed in this way, the legend that he is. I’m very excited to see kind of what his story mode looks like throughout the game. Like I said, I’m just a bit part in that. So it’s my pleasure and my honor to be even a little footnote in the story of John Cena.”-Seth Rollins
Rollins will be taking part in the upcoming Elimination Chamber match for the United States Championship, where he looks to become a 3 time champion.
