"Greatest of all time" - John Cena shares his honest opinion of Roman Reigns (Exclusive)
WWE Superstar John Cena shared his honest opinion of Roman Reigns with the media before his match at Superstar Spectacle in Hyderabad, India.
Cena has been regarded as the GOAT by fans and colleagues alike. He has achieved everything during his time in WWE and has been the face of the company for over a decade.
Roman Reigns has seemingly taken over that mantle and is the current franchise player for WWE. A role that, for so long, had been associated with Cena.
Speaking at the media junket before WWE Superstar Spectacle, Sportskeeda Wrestling's Riju Dasgupta asked John Cena if he felt Roman Reigns was his successor in WWE.
The 16-time World Champion had a near-instantaneous reply that may stun many a fan:
"In my perspective I think Roman Reigns is the greatest of all time," Cena replied.
John Cena also sent a message to WWE fans in India
Cena also addressed the crowd, sending out a message to the fans in attendance, and all over the subcontinent:
"Thank you all for being here en masse. It really means a lot to WWE, those of you who watch WWE programming, I mentioned on TV last week how important being here is to me."
He also spoke about how coming to India is a monumental moment in his 20+ year career:
"It's the first time I've had to come and wrestle a match in my 20-year career in WWE. I came on a goodwill tour back in 2006 and I was overwhelmed with the passion of the fan base here in India. So it's a pleasure to be back and truly a monumental moment for me to be able to perform for the WWE Universe here in India tonight."
John Cena recently made his long-awaited return to WWE and is all set to feature in his first bout ever in India. He will team up with Seth Rollins to face off against Imperium members Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci.
There are several other big names set to wrestle as well, like Rhea Ripley, Natalya, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens.
