Hyderabad, India – In an exclusive pre-match interview ahead of Superstar Spectacle in Hyderabad, India, WWE icon John Cena didn’t hold back in expressing his admiration for Roman Reigns. Cena, often referred to as the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) by fans and peers, didn’t hesitate to bestow this honor upon Reigns.
The conversation was sparked by a question from Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta, who asked Cena if he considered Roman Reigns his successor in WWE. Cena’s response was swift and profound: “In my perspective, I think Roman Reigns is the greatest of all time.”
This declaration carries significant weight, as Cena’s legacy in WWE is unparalleled. Having achieved everything there is in the wrestling world, he held the mantle of WWE’s face for over a decade. Reigns, in recent times, has risen to prominence as the franchise player, a role historically associated with Cena.
Cena didn’t stop there. He also conveyed a heartfelt message to WWE fans in India, acknowledging their importance to the company:

“Thank you all for being here en masse. It really means a lot to WWE, those of you who watch WWE programming. I mentioned on TV last week how important being here is to me.”
Reflecting on the significance of performing in India, Cena remarked, “It’s the first time I’ve had to come and wrestle a match in my 20-year career in WWE. I came on a goodwill tour back in 2006, and I was overwhelmed with the passion of the fan base here in India. So it’s a pleasure to be back and truly a monumental moment for me to be able to perform for the WWE Universe here in India tonight.”
John Cena recently made a highly anticipated return to WWE and is poised to compete in his first-ever match in India. He will join forces with Seth Rollins to take on Imperium members Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci.
Superstar Spectacle promises an action-packed event, featuring other wrestling stars like Rhea Ripley, Natalya, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens.
