WWE's John Cena Reveals He Hasn't Watched AEW, Thinks Competition Is Great
No AEW for Big Match John
Speaking about All Elite Wrestling on Pardon My Take, John Cena admitted he hasn't watched the promotion's product but he does think competition is great.
"I haven't watched AEW. Do I think competition is good? I think competition is great. There is internal competition within WWE about performers wanting to be champion, performers wanting to be headliners. I think whenever there is more buzz around an industry, it is good for the industry," Cena began.
"It forces all of us to be at our best because if you're not, your segment isn't going to be good. Your performance is not going to be good, you may not have a future with the company you are with, and repeated bad segments from the group means the company isn't going to be good, which means the competition will succeed," he continued.
"So, I think competition brings out the best in us. For all my time going out there as a performer, I always wanted to do the best I could possibly do, certainly set the tone for wanting to be the best show between Raw and SmackDown certainly, have eyes on the segments that I was on. I was fuelled by a sense of internal competition."
Beyond his acting commitments, Cena sporadically performs in WWE, last appearing at SummerSlam in August of 2021 when he was defeated by Roman Reigns in a Universal Title match.
