"What A Way To Set Yourself Up For Disappointment" - John Cena Downplays Potential WWE Match With Drew McIntyre

Cena isn't convinced the match will happen

John Cena has responded to Drew McIntyre's suggestions that the duo should have a huge WWE match, suggesting the Scottish Warrior should manage his expectations.

McIntyre has publicly declared his desire to face Cena, having said he believes there is no bigger potential bout that WWE could put on right now than him versus the 16-time WWE Champion.

Cena, however, says he doesn't approach his work in WWE the same way because it's not his decision on who he faces. With WWE management making those choices, Cena believes McIntyre might be setting himself up for disappointment.

Speaking with On Demand Entertainment, Cena said: "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 he supposed to feel about that?"
