– Cathy Kelley‘s latest video for WWE.com above looks at the Roman Reigns – John Cena promo from WWE RAW this past Monday night. Kelley noted that many fans thought Cena destroyed Reigns during their promo.
– Chris Jericho has been making the media rounds to promote his new book, No Is A Four Letter Word. Jericho was interviewed by Fox Business’ Kennedy and discussed being undersized when he entered the business.
“I wanted to be a wrestler and I wanted to be in a rock and roll band when I was a kid and I heard right from the start, ‘no you’ll never do that, it’s never going to happen,'” Jericho said. “It’s a great quote from Paul Stanley [KISS co-founder], ‘The only people that tell you, you can’t do something are the ones that have failed. I’m not going to tell you [that] you can’t do something because I did it-you can do it.’ When I heard that at 16 years old … I didn’t care at that point what anyone else thought, I still don’t. If I believe it and I can see it and I know that I have the resources to do it, I’m going to do it.
“I’ve always thought of myself as a showman. When I got into wrestling I was very small compared to the other guys who were 6’9 and 300 pounds. So I knew I could never be the biggest guy on the show, but I could have the biggest personality and the biggest character,” he said.
