KFAN “Extreme Pro Wrestling Radio” is featuring an interview with WWE star Randy Orton where he talks about the planned main event of The Rock vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania 28 next year in Miami and seems take back a few negative things he said about Rock earlier in the year.
“You know, that’s a tough question for me to answer. I’ve answered it already a few times. Here’s the thing, I could be selfish and say that I feel it takes away from me, but you have to give credit where credit is due, and I will very humbly say that Cena, watching him come up and get better and better and just how smart he is in and outside the business, the business side, he knows what he’s doing out there. Rock? You know, he went and did the acting thing. I could see how one of our fans would be upset with him for coming back after all this time and saying, ‘I promise I won’t leave, I’m here for good, I’m here to stay.’
The day after WrestleMania, this match, Cena vs. Rock, is made. And you thinking, man, is he going to be around to promote this match. Here’s the thing, Rock is so big time and that many more people are going to watch our show because of it. And for that, no matter how I feel about whether or not Rock is here, there, or wherever, I got paid for this past WrestleMania and I was happy with my payday. And I know that that number on that paycheck reflected him being present that day. If anything, Dwayne, if you’re listening, thank you. And I think everyone on the card owes him a thank you, because helped people watch our show. He helped ticket sales, plain and simple. He’s The Rock. Whether you love him or hate him, he’s entertaining.”
