Roman Reigns discussed John Cena’s WWE return to set up their SummerSlam title match and Cena using him to sell Suicide Squad tickets during a recent interview on the Pat McAfee Show.
Here is what he had to say:
“Man, like anybody at the top of their game or in an elevated position, I think there’s a polarizing effect. There’s a lot of good things John Cena has done, obviously Make-A-Wish and he’s a very charitable guy, but when it comes to our profession of sports entertainment, he’s levels below me in this game. You know what I mean? Entertainment is story-telling, right? I’m the greatest storyteller of our generation, of our time. He’s a big name, he’s a big star, he’s a movie star now. But he, like so many other greats, they camouflage themselves. They disguise themselves. You see me every Friday night, I have to dull this shit down. You know what I mean? I come out there in some sweatpants and some J’s. I don’t have to throw on the crazy colors, wear wristbands all over my body. I don’t have to make myself something that I’m not. So, you know, there are a lot of different things about John that I think we can all connect to with the good things he does. But to me, if he would’ve just come here to promote his movie, ‘Suicide Squad, yay. It’s a good movie. Go watch it.’ You can open the show, you can pep up the crowd, do that and then I’ll stay in the main event where I belong, and I’ll close the show, and we’ll be done. But he’s smart, you know what I’m saying? He’s smart. If I was him and I’m promoting a movie and I want to get that buzz, what do you do? You go to the Island of Relevancy, you go to The Tribal Chief, and you try to find the biggest thing cooking right now, and that’s me. So, he’s trying to use my name to promote his movies. So, James Gunn, you’re welcome.”
