United States Champion Austin Theory picked up the biggest win of his WWE career back at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, when he retained his championship in the opening match against John Cena.
The build up to the match saw Cena run down the champion on the microphone, with Theory ultimately defeating the 16-time world champion in Los Angeles.
Speaking about the match during an appearance on the Babyfaces Podcast, Theory shared what John Cena told him after the match.
“Post-match, it was a really cool moment. He just told me to enjoy this day and enjoy this moment. Literally, there was no stress that day whatsoever. I wasn’t nervous. Everything that prepared me for that moment. Everything that I had to go out there and perform, I felt like I had it, and that was something really cool but something that John says that you could say a lot of people say. It’s so true that just not being afraid to fail and betting on yourself and just going for it.
“A lot of times, that’s what holds a lot of us back from things you just worried about this or that, and it might not even be you. You might believe in yourself, and just because one person has an opinion, it bothers you, and it sets you off, and that’s the biggest thing. It’s just don’t be afraid to fail. It’s gonna be a ride. It’s gonna go up, it’s gonna go down but just continuing to press forward.”
Theory is set to defend his United States Championship against Santos Escobar on tomorrow night’s (August 11) SmackDown show.
