Austin Theory reveals curiosity surrounding his first contact with John Cena

The WWE universe is eagerly anticipating an epic showdown at WrestleMania 39 between John Cena and Austin Theory for the United States Championship. The two wrestlers have been engaging in a war of words in recent weeks, putting their relationship to the test. However, Theory recently revealed in an interview with Chris Van Vliet how much Cena has influenced his career and how the two first met during his early days in NXT.

Theory recounted how Cena took the time to talk to everyone who aspired to be on the main roster, and how he waited three hours to talk to him personally.

“I remember waiting like three hours to talk to him and I just went in there, I remember the first thing I showed him was the picture of me as a kid where I couldn’t afford the actual shirt and wristbands, so I made my off brand stuff. I was eight years old and I showed him the picture and was like ‘Man, this is probably crazy but check it out.’ He was like ‘That’s not crazy, that was awesome.’ We got to sit there, I really just asked everything I could because this is the source, this is the man that held it down for well over a decade. It was a lot for me to take in at the time, you know, because he was spitting knowledge but I’m still, woah, this is John Cena. I’m just trying to take everything in. That moment specifically I’ll never forget.”

Fans are excited to see how WWE will continue to build the feud between Cena and Theory leading up to WrestleMania 39, and are eagerly awaiting Cena’s return to the Grandest Stage Of Them All.
