ESPN interviewed John Cena last week, who discussed his WWE return and starring in the new war movie "The Wall." He also spoke about being part of the previous generation of talent, and whether he'd like to face the Undertaker at Wrestlemania.
One of the things that Cena said during his return promo that got some attention was his perceived shot against "The New Era" and all the younger talent encompassed there-in.
"I'm not done, I'm not leaving, and I'm sick of this New Era BS. It ain't the New Era. It's the "My Time Is Now Era."
Cena clarified those remarks in the ESPN interview.
"Over the past decade and a half that I've been around, the superstar turnover rate has been [high]. I've seen maybe three waves of talent come and go. I was just fortunate to be in a group in the turn of the century that was extremely talented, [with the] likes of Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar, just to name a few."
Now, as for what Cena's plans are for the near future, he has a match vs AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble event, and from there, who knows? He was asked if he might like to tangle with the Dead Man at Wrestlemania.
"Undertaker certainly is a cornerstone of WWE, and just as I say to myself that I really would have liked to been able to get to know and certainly get in the ring with Andre the Giant, just because of all the respect and folklore that went around with Andre, I think The Undertaker has that same sort of respect and folklore around him.
"If you're asking if I'd want to be in a high-profile match with one of the most legendary superstars in the industry, my answer is yes."
Looks like the ball is in your court, WWE.
