Cena believes in giving opportunities to the new superstars in the company 

In an new interview with to promote this Sunday’s PPV Elimination Chamber, John Cena had the following to say about incorporating springboard Stunner into his move set, on being the US Champion and giving a shot to the new talents. Cena says he was forever inspired by Steve Austin and admits that he needed something special to come on top against Rusev.

The former Professor-of-Thuganomics also feels the US Title hasn’t been given the respect it deserves and believes in giving opportunities to the new talents of the company so that they don’t fell being shackled down without a chance. Below are the highlights:

The US Title:

“I don’t think the United States Championship has been given the respect it deserves. It truly is the trophy of our country.”

His springboard stunner:

“I’ve been watching a young man for a long time named Steve Austin. It’s something similar to (the Stone Cold Stunner). And I knew I was going to have to bring something a little special for Rusev. Believe it or not, with all my in-ring experience, I actually took back to the canvas, and practiced a little bit, had some fun; and that’s what I came up with.”

His US Open Challenges:

“I want to give (the opportunity to) those new Superstars. Maybe those Superstars who feel they’ve been shackled down without a chance. I use Daniel Bryan as a fantastic example. The stuff that kid had to overcome to get to the main stage. I think there’s a lot of those individuals out there; and I want to use the United States Championship platform to, at least, give those guys a chance to step up to the plate.”
