One of the matches set for WrestleMania 39 is a United States Championship match between current champion Austin Theory and John Cena. A match between the two stars has been teased for quite some time, but their WrestleMania match was made official back on the March 6 episode of WWE Raw.

In a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Austin Theory was asked about his take regarding Cena telling him that even if he beats him at WrestleMania, he'll still 'lose' in the long run due to the pressure he'd face after beating a legend of Cena's caliber.

“Yeah, I get it. I get it because he wants everybody to believe that I don’t have it, that I’m screwed. But that is a man that says that because when he looks in my eyes, he knows that I have everything. I do. He has a legacy, he has so much. Everybody knows John Cena, he’s the top of the top. I think when he looks at me and sees that I’m 25 and he sees that the level that I’m on and the things that I’m doing and the level that I’m growing at, it can’t be touched. It really can’t be. So you have to look me in my eyes and tell me that if I beat you, that I lose everything. But we all know that’s wrong John.. why? Why if it means nothing does he even want to have this match? He wants to have this match because I’m the most important thing in the WWE. It’s clear as day. There’s a lot of people that wanna sit there and [disagree with that], but then they're gonna have to go ‘Okay, Theory’s the guy.’ They’re gonna have to. It’s just where we are man. So, him saying that me winning means I’m gonna lose everything, okay. I can’t wait to lose everything when I show up on Monday Night Raw, my show, holding my title because that's inevitable. All of those people that he says don’t believe in me, I could care less. Guess how many people believed in me when I was 8 and told them I wanted to be a WWE superstar. Guess how many people laughed at me when I was twelve sitting at the table in school when I told them I wanted to be a WWE superstar. I don’t need people to believe in me and I’ve always shown that. If I don’t believe that, I don’t think I’d be where I'm at [being] 25 today. So, it is what it is. WrestleMania 39, it’s my night. It’s my show and I’m gonna own that and show that. That is All Day and that is inevitable.”

Theory recently said that he expects Cena to put back on his skirt and heels and get back to work after the match at WrestleMania. Cena recently dressed up in a skirt and heels for a film role in 'Ricky Stanicky.'
