During his recent interview with The Herd with Colin Cowherd, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked about the promos between Cena and Reigns that were taking personal shots at each other. Here are a few highlights from the interview:

On John Cena following The Rock’s footsteps:

“I believe Cena will be following Rock to the big screen in the big time, and Steve Austin has his thing on CMT with the ‘Broken Skull Challenge,’ John Cena is on the Today Show from time to time as well,”

WWE stars needing a break from the busy schedule:

“I think the same conversations have been had in the NFL locker room and in the NBA. I believe it’s because kids are being parented differently, The athletes that are in the 20-somethings have a different upbringing of the 20-somethings before them in my view. I think a lot of the issues have a lot to do with parenting. I cover it in my book with my wife wanted me to cover it because it was important to me. I wasn’t a very important father because I was a workaholic, and these guys can get guilt, anxiety, they are on the road, they are an absentee father; a lot of them are missing home.”


On the promos from John Cena and Roman Reigns:

“I was surprised that it got this personal as it did and real. The situation behind the scenes that the audience is not aware of is the keen competition, If you want to make the big bread and have your name above the title; you know, Steve Austin vs Hulk Hogan above WrestleMania; there’s only a few that can get their names up there, so there is always competition for that spot. John Cena has already had that spot, and is now ready to transition to a lesser role because of his schedule and age, and his life. I think he threw the gauntlet down to challenge Roman Reigns; apparently you are going to be looking for your successor and for that you have a lot of work to do.”
