WWE news: Seth Rollins reveals what he learned from John Cena ahead of World Cup | WWE | Sport


Rollins and Cena have both qualified for the World Cup Tournament in Saudi Arabia and could go toe-to-toe again on November 2 at the King Saud University Stadium.

The two former world champions had some incredible matches for the WWE and US Championship in 2015 and haven’t faced each other since last February during a seven-man Gauntlet Match that saw the Kingslayer wrestling for the longest time in RAW history.

The Intercontinental and RAW Tag Team Champion considers The Leader of the Cenation as a mentor and stated that he taught him how to be a main-event superstar.

The Architect also learned how to understand the pace of a big-time match and treat every single one of his bouts as the most important one regardless of how high it is placed on the card.

Rollins told Express Sport: “I learned a lot working with John. To be honest with you, John is someone whose experience inspired me a lot over the last six years of my career here in WWE.

“He’s a guy who in a strange way somehow became a mentor to me, someone looking in from the outside.

“I would credit John the most for teaching me how to be a main-event superstar, teaching me how to understand the pace of a big-time match and feel like the most important match in the card no matter where it’s at.

“John definitely taught me a lot in WWE.”

Rollins and Cena will face the likes of Kurt Angle, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio in the World Cup next month.

The Kingslayer though has just been embroiled in an intense feud with former Shield team-mate Dean Ambrose who launched a savage attack on him last Monday night on RAW.

This is set to to be a very heated rivalry as Ambrose betrayed his former Brother in Arms after winning the RAW Tag Team Championships together and dedicating their victory to their third partner Roman Reigns who relinquished the Universal Championship after announcing he has leukaemia.

Cena’s last match took place at WWE’s last overseas Pay-Per-View event Super Show-Down in Australia where he teamed up with Bobby Lashley.

The powerful duo defeated Kevin Owens and Elias in a Tag Team Match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The 16-time world champion now works on a part-time basis with WWE due to his busy Hollywood schedule and the fact he is now at the advanced age of 41 years old.
