Cena is known as "the face of the WWE for a lon...
On his most memorable match: "It was just a couple of months ago at Extreme Rules, Daniel Bryan against CM Punk. I was honored to referee that match, and those guys tore the house down. It was just fantastic, probably one of the purest wrestling matches that I've ever refereed. It was great."
On the biggest bump he's ever taken: "It was Extreme Rules again, just a couple of months ago. Brock Lesnar was wrestling John Cena, and the official for the match was Charles Robinson. He got knocked down, and I come running down the aisle. I think Brock had Cena in a pin attempt, and I slid into the ring, got a two count, and as I stood up, here comes Lesnar with a clothesline. I didn't remember much afterward. And then he kicks me in the stomach as I try to get out of the ring."
On how referee match assignments are determined: "That is something the talent-relations department does. They'll just see who is available that day, which refs are booked for the show, and just go down and assign us usually at least two matches if we're doing a TV taping. But it can be anywhere from two to four matches a night. When we're doing five shows a week, you could do potentially up to 20 matches in a week."
On returning at RAW: I tell you, it was overwhelming, the amount of crowd reaction that I received tonight. It was insane. It's almost been a year, since August, that I've been in the ring. I would't change it for nothing in the world, I'll tell you that. It is the best feeling in the world, to be able to be out there and perform for your crowd."
On getting revenge on Albero Del Rio: "Well, I definitely got a piece of what I wanted tonight. I didn't eat the whole pie, I got a slice of it, But, there's plenty of time and Rey comes back with vengeance. He's going to take care of business that should have been taken a long time ago. Unfortunately, it hasn't. But again: I am back and I am back to stay and I'm back to take care of business. Alberto Del Rio, he's going to see me around."
