John Cena wants Drew McIntyre to manage his expectations.
Two weeks ago during a conversation with On Demand Entertainment, McIntyre explained why he believes there's no bigger match than John Cena vs. McIntyre. Speaking with the same outlet promoting the Fast 9, Cena responded to Drew's statement by saying the following:
"Well, I always appreciate being involved in a conversation of saying things are important because that means people haven't forgotten what you've put forth as an effort. But, what a way to set yourself up for disappointment. In no way, shape, or form is Drew in a position to make matches or make things happen and I'm not either. Neither of us have that power. That's beyond our capacity so I certainly am grateful for being mentioned, which is awesome.
I got more matches left in the WWE. I'm not done. But I've never approached anything like, 'I'd like to work with this person or 'I want to have a match with this person,' because I don't make those choices. They say, 'Hey, we'd like you to do this.' Alright, it's time to go to work and that's really allowed me to enjoy every step of the way. I think if we build up expectations in our head, like I hate to say this to Drew, but if that never happens, how is supposed to feel about that?"
Cena's last match came against Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36 in a Firefly Fun House match. In addition to Fast 9, Cena can also be seen as Peacemaker in the upcoming DC Supervillain team-up, The Suicide Squad.
