Randy Orton & Riddle Raw Return Spoiler Leaks

Randy Orton and Matt Riddle could return on WWE Raw in two weeks, Xero News reports.



During a recent interview with Stadium Astro, Cody Rhodes shared that the tweet he made about rewarding the noise from the audience was not something John Cena told him at that moment. In fact, it was something Cena used to say to Rhodes back when he was just starting out in the wrestling industry and would drive Cena around. Rhodes had actually asked Cena for a match, but when he told Cena at Raw that if he ever did another match, he would like to work with him, Cena simply replied, “I can’t promise that.” Rhodes didn’t want to make the moment about himself, so he just thanked Cena and left it at that.

Rhodes went on to talk about how he had seen Cena embody the phrase “reward their noise” countless times at live events and television tapings. He explained that it was more than just an expression to Cena; it was a genuine way he approached performing for the audience. Cena always wanted to give the fans what they wanted, whether it was an exciting match or just a moment to connect with their favorite wrestler.

Rhodes emphasized that this mindset was crucial for performers in the wrestling industry, as they are not just performing for themselves but for the audience as well. He explained that performers need to think about what the audience wants and try to deliver it to them. In some cases, that might mean taking something away from the fans, but in other cases, it might mean giving them exactly what they want.

After John Cena’s appearance at the Nightmare Factory, he tweeted about how he had entered an arena and realized it could be “the last time.” He later clarified the tweet, but it was clear that Cena was feeling sentimental about his time in the wrestling industry and the impact he had on his fans.

“So actually, that was something he told me in the car when I was driving him around in 2008-2009. What he said to me on Raw was — I was telling him if he ever does another match, I would like [to work with him], and I think you could hear him pretty well. He says, ‘I can’t promise that.’ I also didn’t want to make it about myself at that moment, so I just endlessly thanked him, and then he was at the Nightmare Factory a week later talking to our students.
That was something in the car that it’s not just his axiom, it was a genuine way he approached live events, and shows was rewarding their noise,” Rhodes said. “A simpler way to look at that is kids come to a show, and they see their guy hurt, and they see their guy down, and they start clapping, they want something from him. He was a big proponent and always doing something so that they know if they do something, he’ll be up for them or he’ll at least try. I think looking at the flow of a live event, looking at the flow of a premium live event, there is something huge to that. Because we can’t just do these matches in the ring, bell-to-bell, for each other. We’re doing them for this audience sitting there in the building that night, as well as worldwide on television. You have to try and step into their shoes. You’re so focused on what you’re doing, sure, but you have to step in their shoes and [think] what do they want, and can I give it to them? Or is it my job to take it away from them? That was just something that always sat with me and, when in practice, always worked.”
