John Cena addressed The Bloodline ahead of WWE Fastlane.
On September 1st, John Cena made his return to WWE amidst the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike. He’s been making regular appearances on the blue brand since that time, and at Fastlane on October 7th, he’ll team with LA Knight to take on the team of Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa.
Speaking on the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, Cena opened up about his thoughts on The Bloodline, comparing the fractured group to a house of cards blowing in the wind.
“The Bloodline has a great thing going, and it’s also very frail at the same time. I think people can sense the possible frailty, the house of cards is blowing in the wind, and that’s when everybody’s like, I can step up and do this. I don’t blame them for doing everything they can to try to solidify their position at the top. I don’t know, I guess I’m the guy foolish enough to step up anyway.”
When asked about any unfinished business with Roman Reigns after losing to the Tribal Chief at SummerSlam in 2021, Cena said:
“The last time I did get a fair fight, I finished second which isn’t too bad. As long as you’re in the WWE, it’s unfinished business. As long as you’re here, there’s another match, there’s another chance, there’s another day. Is it unfinished business? Sure, of course because we’re always here.”
“Jimmy And I Go Way Back” – John Cena On Jimmy Uso
When it comes to Jimmy Uso, Cena had this to say:
“Jimmy and I actually go way back. The first time him and his brother had matches in the WWE, I was there. I remember encouraging them to honor their Samoan heritage before the matches. I don’t blame the drastic measures, I don’t blame the brash personality, I endorse it. I mean, the way I first connected with the audience was by being very brash and by taking crazy risks and it necessarily by being virtuous.”
After saying that he sees similarities between Solo Sikoa and the late Umaga, Cena questioned Sikoa’s blind loyalty to Roman Reigns.
“Man, you’re talking to the guy who has hustle, loyalty, and respect branded on everything he puts out there. I never fault loyalty, I do fault blind loyalty. Solo’s really new to the game, I don’t blame him for trying to take a second to figure out the landscape.”
