Paul Heyman – ‘John Cena Will Be The Bloodline’s Lowest Hanging Fruit’



In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated ahead of tonight’s stacked WWE NXT show, Paul Heyman discussed why John Cena will never join The Bloodline, the career of the late WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk, and more.

Heyman will be a part of tonight’s signature matchup between Carmelo Hayes and Bron Breakker on WWE NXT.

Heyman will be in Breakker’s corner, while Cena will accompany Hayes.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Bron Breakker vs. Carmelo Hayes: “Bron Breakker versus Carmelo Hayes, in and of itself, is a demonstration of the magnificent future this industry is going to enjoy. There are few, if any, better representatives in the talent competing for the WrestleMania main events coming up in the next several years. The guest appearances on this show are merely to call attention to the enormously gifted talent pool that is offered to the viewer on a weekly basis every Tuesday night. I would humbly suggest this NXT roster can compete with any claim there has ever been a more significant or more talented roster.”

On the late Terry Funk: “If one is to self-analyze what opportunities contributed to the enormous success that they enjoyed over others who pursued the same success, then that person is far more inclined to give back to the industry that provided the opportunity to live out such dreams. Terry Funk was never hesitant to give back. He was always aware that the industry would carry on without him–the same way the industry carried on without his father, and the same way the industry carried on without his father’s predecessors. His understanding that giving back to the industry only extends one’s own legacy is yet another reason why Terry Funk was and is so passionately respected and admired in this industry.”

On why John Cena will never join The Bloodline: “John Cena is so comfortable in his righteousness that he would never be able to live with himself knowing the compromise of conscience that would be necessary to be a full-fledged member of The Bloodline. Besides that, he is a highly intelligent and savvy self-promoter. Cena could never accept that, in The Bloodline, he’d be number two behind Roman Reigns, if not number three behind Roman Reigns and Solo–if not number four behind Roman Reigns, Solo, and Jimmy Uso–if not number five behind Roman Reigns, Solo, Jimmy Uso, and Paul Heyman. Cena is an enormous attraction. He’s also smart. He knows he’ll always be positioned as number-one on the marquee against us, but never with us.”

Tonight’s episode of WWE NXT featuring Heyman and Cena will air live on the USA Network at 8:00 PM EST. The first half hour of tonight’s show will air without commercials.
