WWE: Roman Reigns irritated by John Cena comparison

Football News

During Survivor Series on Sunday night, Roman Reigns made an appearance via satellite to announce that he will finally be making a highly-anticipated return to WWE next month.

Reigns' absence has been due to the emergency hernia surgery he had to have, followed by a lengthy lay off while his body was able to recover.

While he has been out of action, the former Shield member has carried out media appearances such as that at the Reno Comic Con in Nevada this past weekend.

No John Cena

In an interview with Jason Hidalgo from Reno Gazette-Journal, Reigns was keen to reiterate that he and John Cena are in no way comparative:

"Just because a wrestler is kicking butt and beating opponents does not make that guy a John Cena clone." He explained, referring to the fact some have likened him to being the 'next John Cena' of WWE.

Reigns continued: "Last time I checked, I'm 6'3" 265 pounds, which is bigger than John Cena...last time I checked, my hair is long and jet black, and last time I checked John Cena's isn't."

And he couldn't resist giving that vein Roman Reigns twist on his point: "I'm way better looking and I'm way more athletic than he is so for anybody to compare me to him is completely asinine."

Long lay-off

The 29-year-old seemed unquestionably confident and ready for his return in December of this year, but also expressed his enjoyment at being able to take some time off from the hectic wrestling world of WWE.

He stated: "Not only am I not getting hurt — I'm not falling down, nobody's hitting me — but I'm still able to see people and have people be excited to see me."

A break from WWE therefore is understandably a welcome relief for WWE Superstars, even if it is through a sudden injury.

The hectic lifestyle these wrestlers have means they have few days rest throughout the year, but after the time out Reigns has had, the WWE Universe will surely be more than grateful to see the master of the Spear back in the ring again next month.
