Drew Galloway Wants To Be 'Bigger Than John Cena,' Says Roman Reigns Is 'Being Spoon Fed' To Fans

Current TNA and Former WWE wrestler Drew Galloway was interviewed for Sports Illustrated as part of their regular "Extra Mustard" feature, and he had plenty to say about two of the top guys in WWE: John Cena and Roman Reigns.

Galloway says he's known Cena for a long time and even seeks counsel from him from time to time.

"I used to be around John Cena all the time in WWE, and I watched him and the way he worked. John is a guy who has been at the top longer than anyone else in history, and I'm lucky to have the opportunity to train at Cena's gym and go to him for advice. The questions I ask him deal with how to conduct myself as a businessman and how to truly get over in wrestling. My goal is to actually top him, and be bigger and busier than John Cena."

As far as Roman Reigns goes, Galloway acknowledges that "The Big Dog" might be the prototype WWE superstar, but he understands why Roman's placement at the top of the heap would be aggravating to some fans.

"Roman looks great, has incredible stage presence, and he is solid in the ring. The issue is he's been positioned as the 'chosen guy,' and when you spoon feed that to the fans, generally they don't respond favorably. But he gets a huge response either way, which means they care and speaks to his overall talent much like Cena."

Galloway also takled about his exit from and possible return to WWE, his opinions on AJ Styles and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
