When asked whether there’s any backstage buzz regarding the signings of Ring of Honor wrestlers Bryan Danielson and Nigel McGuinness. “Certainly, if the locker room remembers that Velocity match [between Cena and Danielson] a long time ago, they’re much more of the historian category than I am,” Cena said. “We’re always happy to get any sort of talent. I think Bryan will be a wonderful acquisition for the program, as well as any of our developmental superstars.”
Cena also commented WWE’s need to develop new stars, a topic that many WWE superstars (most recently Chris Jericho) have spoken about in recent interviews. “The good news is that the company is not clearly behind one person,” he said. “They’re kind of spreading themselves out to see who works out. Between Miz between (John) Morrison, between Sheamus, between Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, Kofi Kingston, there are so many guys that are getting a shot — finally. It’s just good to see a lot of people getting a shot at once rather than the company firmly backing one individual.”
