Seth Rollins and John Cena have had quite a few awesome matches in WWE, and if the former’s praise for the 16-time world champion is anything to go by, it was bound to happen. The Visionary was full of praise for his one-time arch-nemesis, calling him “the greatest of all time,” during a recent interview.

So Seth Rollins called John Cena the 🐐 & says he’s still a mentor. Yet the dude manages to still drop top tier trolling on him. Incredible. #WWERaw #WWE pic.twitter.com/MqJD2YpB1P

Rollins was speaking with Pro Wrestling Illustrated over the Royal Rumble weekend, and when the time came to discuss Cena on the cover of WWE 2K23, he gave the Hollywood star high praise:
“John’s the GOAT. John’s the best. John is incredible. I’m a footnote, really, in his career, you know, John influenced so many talents over the years. He was a generational guy. For me, though, on the other side of that, John influenced what I do so heavily. I took a ton of inspiration from John. I learned a lot being in the ring with John. I learned a lot watching John behind the scenes. John still is a mentor to me, even now that he’s not around that often. It’s awesome to see him portrayed in this way (WWE 2K23 cover), the legend that he is. I’m very excited to see what his story mode looks like throughout the game. I’m just a bit part of that. So it’s my pleasure and my honor to be even a little footnote in the story of John Cena.”
Cena does not have many years or matches left in WWE, so to see him having this kind of impact on the current generation shows the legacy he has left behind.
Is Seth Rollins correct?
