Austin Theory Explains Why He’ll Excel Past John Cena

Austin Theory Explains Why He’ll Excel Past John Cena WWE

The United States Championship clash between Austin Theory and John Cena is now official for WrestleMania 39.

Cena returned to WWE on last night’s (March 6) episode of the show, where he verbally destroyed the United States Champion in a promo ahead of their match.

Speaking to Sportskeeda prior to last night’s show, Theory explained why he’s not this generation’s ‘John Cena’, and why he’ll end up excelling past his level.

He said:

“I am not the John Cena of this generation. I am the Austin Theory. That’s all there is. John Cena, 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 gonna excel past that.

“I’m 25. How many championships did John Cena have at 24? 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.”

Theory continued on, claiming that there is ‘no bigger mountain’ than Cena.

He said:

“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, 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, 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.”
