- Marvel.com recently spoke with World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. Here are some highlights:

Marvel.com: You just returned from a major injury way sooner than everyone expected. What motivated you to come back so soon?

John Cena: I just don’t like [being out]. I really like the job and it comes with ups and downs and I know not necessarily everyone at my job loves me but that shouldn’t sour me from my place of employment. I’ve truly found a home in the WWE and when I’m not there all I want to do is be there. I think that helped me get back really soon because everything I did was focused on getting back sooner and sooner.

Marvel.com: Tickets for WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans are going on sale Saturday, November 16. In a perfect world, what do you want to be doing at the upcoming WrestleMania?

John Cena: Honestly, I like seeing how WrestleMania unfolds. I’ve had different matches over the years. I’ve been scattered throughout the menu. But looking back at all my WrestleMania performances, the fact is that I was there and I really enjoy seeing what’s going to happen. I was a part of WrestleMania XX and if you look at the timeline from XX until now, XX pretty much laid the foundation of the people who are truly the driving force of the company right now. So who’s to say what’s going to happen at [WrestleMania] XXX? I really just want to be able to find out. First of all, I’m glad that tickets are going on sale on the 16th because that makes the event very [real]. And then I just want to be able to see where I can be, what I can do, and how this whole thing is going to shake up.

Marvel.com: In a lot of people’s eyes it seems like you already have super powers. If you could have one more in life or in the ring, what would it be?

John Cena: Man, honestly I hope for the power of invisibility. I say, “You can’t see me” all the time so I kind of half-ass answered that. Maybe cloning? That way I can get myself to more places at once. I truly like being able to be in the ring and I know WWE tours with two brands and now that I’m back I’m trying to make every brand, every show. So if there was just one more of me, I’d be able to make it everywhere at once.

    Yep your absolutely right.

  • The Killswitch

    Short term perhaps, but not long term.

  • JohnCena33

    WWE will “hold their own” but when Cena leaves, they will take a noticeable dent in ratings and sales.

  • JohnCena33

    Me saying they will fail was a overstatement, but if Cena leaves, WWE is in a pickle, they will not have a number one guy, sales and ratings will go down because they will not have Cena put people over, which as a Cena fan I find as just awful, I mean the only way to build stars is to have them beat stars, Cena should lose more matches to help build up the company. I mean you look at all of the top stars in the past for example…..

    Bruno was champ for years with top talent underneath him (Morales, Stan Hansen, Billy Graham, Freddie Blassie, Koloff,) Then for a couple of years the top guy was Backlund who as well had top talent underneath him (Shiek, Valentine, Race). Backlund passed the top guy persona onto Hogan and once again had top talent under him (Macho Man, Steamboat, Warrior, Slaughter, Andre the Giant, Flair) and most of those guys in the so called “Hogan Era” could draw HUGE by themselves. Of course Hogan passed that top guy star to Warrior then on to the Harts and HBK, heck even Diesel, Yokozuna were all big in the early 90′s. Then of course Hart and HBK passed the torch to Stone Cold, Undertaker, Rock, Mankind, HHH, Kane, NAO, then of course those guys passed the torch to Angle, Edge, Mysterio, Guerrero, Chavo, JBL, Benoit, Lesnar, Jericho (When Hogan returned in the 2000′s he wanted more money, but Vince said no because there are 12 top guys), now present time who is there, NO ONE. I mean I guess you Cena, Punk, Orton?, Bryan?. To of those guys draw big, the other two not as a big. WWE does not have that flourish of talent yet, hopefully The Shield and the Wyatts will be that answer, but until then WWE NEEDS to develop top stars.

  • The Killswitch

    Haha no you’re fine. Just surprised that people think the company can’t hold their own without Cena. If I owned a successful company, I’d have plenty of foresight as injuries occur and the stars get older. Like the well known eggs and baskets analogy.

  • JohnCena33

    Yes, WWE will not fail but will take a huge hit because they fail to have Cena put people over, which is my main criticism of Cena.

  • JohnCena33

    I have released the flood gates haven’t I?

  • millerj265

    Don’t worry I wont make you read threw yet another 17,000 character reply…. At least not today lol.

  • Matthew Farrell

    Only because WWE hasn’t built anyone up to replace Cena.

  • millerj265

    I know that, but that’s not what you wrote, had you said if cena leaves the WWE would struggle in a lot of areas and not that they would flat out go under I would have totally agreed with you. Because he may not be on the level of the guys I mentioned above as far as the amount of money he draws for them(Other then Bruno but he didn’t have the large amount of ways to draw money like Cena and the other guys I mentioned, his only way of making them money was whatever they made for the show they were running that night) he is still there number one draw who makes the wwe a lot of money. And to say they depend on him to much is an understatement lol, they know he cant wrestle forever and yet they don’t seem to be in any kind of hurry to try and find his successor.

  • The Killswitch

    Ohhh boy….

  • JohnCena33

    Yes, when Cena leaves WWE will take a huge hit, they may not fail, but will lose big. They lost a million viewers when he was not there, a lot of merchandise sales, and could lose sponsors if he leaves. They depend to much on him and it may cost them.

  • Solid

    bwahahahaha

  • millerj265

    They didn’t fail when Bruno went away, or when Hogan went away, or when Austin and Rock went away in the same yr. Do you truly put John Cena on a pedestal so high that you really and honestly believe that if he went away it would cause the down fall of a company that has survived for 5 decades? A company that changed the wrestling world, that for better or worse beat and put out of business every wrestling territory, a company that survived a federal indictment and beat the government. A company that was on the brink of going under but found a way to come back and beat WCW a company that was backed by Ted Turner who had a basically endless supply of money to funnel into them, And in the process of beating WCW took wrestling to a level of popularity that it had never and probably will nvr reach again with the help of Stone Cold and The Rock. But you think that losing John Cena is somehow going to be the thing that wwe, after surviving all of that, can not survive from?

  • JohnCena33

    If Cena went away WWE would fail. :p

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    But Cena already has superman like powers……

  • Solid

    Wonder how many people would also want him to have the power to disappear? :P
