WWE News: The 16 – time WWE Champion John Cena, is currently not part of the WWE arena due to his busy schedule in Hollywood. However, in his recent interview, Cena shared his thoughts on WWE’s new initiative ‘RAW Underground.’
John Cena was invited by Phillip Martinez of Newsweek to promote the return of his “Dallas and Robo” animated series on SyFy. During the interview when asked from John Cena what his initial thoughts on RAW Underground, without wasting further anytime Cena said it is a golden opportunity for new faces on WWE to show their ability and caliber.
This is exactly what John Cena’s thoughts on that :
“I think any paradigm shift, any big announcement, anything in that world that is ever-changing, constantly-pivoting, there is always a search for growth. It’s an opportunity, that’s exactly what it is. So, I think it needs a little bit of time to find itself. And in all things, if it lacks creative definition from the top, I really hope performers embrace the unknown and they define it.”
John Cena compares RAW Underground with Stone Cold Steve Austin
John Cena further added that this new initiative more like Stone Cold Steve Austin as initially, Stone Cold did not know what kind of role he was performing in WWE until he was allowed to speak. Once that happened he stood tall on every expectation and became the role model in WWE. This is where WWE witnessed one of the greatest superstars of all time.
“A great example of that is Steve Austin,” Cena continued. “Steve Austin wasn’t told to be Steve Austin, but he was given a chance to speak and Stone Cold Steve Austin came out of that, and then the power of the WWE sent this dude’s personality out to everybody. That’s where we get one if not the greatest WWE superstars of all time in Stone Cold Steve Austin.
“So I see a lot of opportunities like that. You have this newer thing not a lot of people know what all of it is and that is the absolute best for anyone that is going to be in front of the camera because they can define it and they can take advantage of the opportunity.”
WWE Raw Underground so far
