Speaking on WWE El Brunch, Theory explained why he’s inspired by Cena.

“I didn’t know anything about wrestling. I was eight, I turned on the TV, I saw John Cena. I started looking and paying attention and he had that aura, that energy around him. . He could just grab attention in a really good way. The things he said and the messages he put out were very positive and motivating. I found myself really invested in John Cena; the storylines, the games. , everything he went through was cool. It helped me with a lot of things in my personal life and it was almost an escape for me. John Cena paved this way for what I was trying to do for a career. I’ve always known for eight years that I wanted to be in WWE and Cena has always been that motivation and that clear path to ‘never give up’, stay strong, whatever you want you can have it and I stayed with this message and it led me here “, he said.

I don’t like. not give them away and I won’t say it for now, but little Easter eggs and clues from people like, “Oh wait, is that because he looked at John Cena? Is that why he is doing this or that he is wearing this? I like people to ask questions without letting them know. There are certainly hints of Cena in what I do ”, he said.
