WWE’s John Cena told Austin Theory privately ‘I don’t believe what you do’

John Cena says he really believes what he said to Austin Theory on the March 6 episode of WWE Raw.  

Sam Roberts released an interview with the 16-time World Champion on Monday. During the conversation, Cena compared Theory to Roman Reigns and discussed Roman's early difficulties getting over as a babyface. 

Cena said:

I was really trying to hammer this home with Theory. It took Roman 10 years, eight years at the top, pushed for eight years for the lightbulb to go off and be like, 'I"m doing it my way. I will work with who they say, I will hit my times, but I'm going to be who I really am.' 

Cena continued:

When I talk to somebody like Theory, who has stars in his eyes and at 25 thinks he's got a long road in front of him. You really need to start now, failing. Don't just perform, fail, like a lot and then one day you'll get it. You need to have like 85 suffering succotash moments. 

Cena confronted Theory when WWE returned to Boston for the 3/6 Raw. During the segment, Cena told Theory he has everything a WWE executive looks for in a wrestler and that "in theory" he should be a big star, but he's not because nobody cares about him. Cena would later tell Sam Roberts that he told Theory everything he was going to say in his promo that night beforehand. 

Cena said: 

Austin is great and easy to work with and we wrote that together. He was in every step of the process. 

Cena continued later in the conversation:  

Fans can see through the BS if you don't believe in your character. It's what I said to Austin Theory, 'Dude, you are young, you are athletic, you will work for this company, you'll do interviews, you'll go X, Y, and Z, I don't believe what you do when you're out there, I don't.

I said it to him personally before I said it publicly.

In a room with Austin Theory, I said the reason I came back to Boston is because you can't do this yourself yet. You cannot carry a WrestleMania promo yourself yet and if you fail, we waste the equity that I'm willing to give. And if in that match I get hurt, I hold up a production, which puts 300 people out of work. Let's do this right, let's get some equity here and then you have to start thinking about the angles and what's the most important thing and what are we really trying to tell, what's our story. Okay, I don't believe what you do, that's what I'm going with. 

Theory was eliminated from the World Heavyweight title tournament after Bobby Lashley won a three-way against him and Sheamus on the 5/12 SmackDown. He is now scheduled to defend his US title against Sheamus on this week's episode. Sheamus and Theory worked three matches against each other on WWE house shows this weekend.
