At a recent MegaCon convention in Florida, Cena revealed that he was recently at the WWE Performance Center and spoke to NXT Superstars, so as to help the up-and-comers learn the ropes of the trade.
Cena added that he’s inspired by their hunger and how hard they work—noting that, in fact, he hopes to perform with them on an NXT show in the future.
Additionally, Cena was probed as to whether he’d like facing Adam Cole, Ricochet or Velveteen Dream, in response to which he stated—
"My answer is going to upset some people but I would rather face Velveteen Dream…You know in those Star Wars movies with the Jedi and he says something like, 'I think that is the One.' I got that odd, mental and great feeling about Velveteen Dream."
Furthermore, in response to Cena’s aforementioned “The One” comments regarding him, Velveteen Dream reverted back with a tweet stating—
“Whenever He Wants. The DREAM Is Here....The DREAM Is Here!”
Dream is presently engaged in a feud with Ricochet on WWE’s NXT brand—with the duo set to compete in a match at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II.
