Theory Talks Being The “Face Of WWE” Someday, Match Against John Cena


During a recent appearance on the Out of Character with Ryan Satin podcast, WWE Superstar Theory spoke about how he wouldn’t mind being the face of WWE someday, and the potential for a showdown between him and John Cena (which is most likely for SummerSlam).

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Theory on potentially being the face of WWE: “I think so. I don’t know what that level is because I’m on my way up and slowly starting to see how different things are, and there is a lot of evolution for Theory as a character and me, even in my life, being ready for that. I think the way things are going, I feel like I’m at a steady pace, but at the same time, there are some big things that happen that put you on a new level. Honestly, I try not to get in my head too much because, at the end of the day, these are big accomplishments and this is the WWE. This is what I dreamed of my whole life. But at the end of the day, I know myself and I know my work ethic and I plan to only get better. I just want to give this everything I’ve got and I don’t want to hold anything back. I also want to enjoy every single moment, I’m not in a hurry. I want to enjoy the process because you only get one shot at this, one shot at life. For me, that sounds awesome. To be fair, I’ve envisioned myself being the guy and that’s a huge, huge step to take. But I’m on my way, for sure. Right now, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. My ears are open, my mouth is shut, and I’m just ready to keep going.”

On his conversation with Vince McMahon about it and the impact of a possible match against John Cena: “Yeah because I wanted him to know that this was never a second choice for me. This was always the only thing. Nothing against college or stuff like that, you can do that at any time. For me, I never had a plan B. It was this or nothing. I was just so heavy believing in myself at a very young age that, when these guys are at parties in high school, I’m in the gym and I’m training. I finish a job in a warehouse, working 8pm to 8am, I’m tired as hell, but I have to get up and work out because if I don’t, I’m gonna fall off. I’m just gonna keep pushing until the next day. It’s that mentality and those little things. I think everything that happens in life, happens for a reason. The build-up of all these huge moments that have been happening. Could this be the big build-up to get me ready for someone like John Cena? I’m gonna be honest, there are a lot of huge attractions, but I don’t think it gets any bigger than John Cena. Whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t deny his work ethic and what he’s done for WWE. To me, being in that position where I could possibly be the face, just thinking of how much work there is, it’s insane. My hats off to that. It takes a hell of a human, a man, an anomaly, somebody who can pull that off. It’s insane. I feel like my brain will go crazy if I try to think of all this stuff to get there. If I just enjoy every moment and give it my best, it should be a good ride. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, but I definitely keep my head on straight and keep moving forward.”
