John Cena Still A Mentor To Seth Rollins
Rollins evidently likes Cena a lot more than CM Punk...
Seth Rollins has heaped praise on his former rival John Cena, referring to him as 'the GOAT' and noting that he still considers Cena a mentor.
Rollins and Cena frequently feuded and clashed many times on television and pay-per-view, including a memorable 'Winner Takes All' match for both the WWE and United States titles at SummerSlam 2015.
Speaking to Pro Wrestling Illustrated during a WWE 2K23 media event, The Architect had this to say about his relationship with the 16-time World Champion:
"I'm a footnote, really, in his career, you know. John Influenced so many talents over the years. He was a generational guy. For me, though, on the other side of that, John influenced what I do so heavily. I took a tonne of inspiration from John, I learned a lot being in the ring with John, and I learned a lot watching John behind the scenes. John is still a mentor to me, even now that he's not around that often".
It was recently reported that Cena was 'locked in' to face Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39.
