Josh Stewart of The Long Island Press passed on an interview he recently had with WWE Champion John Cena. Here are some highlights from the interview: On so many injuries in WWE lately: “Live event business is great. Pay-per-view business is great. TV business is great. And that’s where we make our money. We make our money selling tickets. And I think it falls on the hands of the talent to really be careful in there. We’ve got some guys that are hurt that have been in it for a while. Shawn Michaels is out hurt, Undertaker is out hurt, Triple H is hurt, Rey Mysterio is hurt. These are guys who are 10 years or more involved.” On if WWE’s schedule is causing injuries: “I don’t want to say it’s because of the schedule. I’m just saying you can only do this full tilt for so long. And these guys are gracious enough to lend their time full tilt. In our sport, you’re going to get hurt. It’s only a matter of time. We’ve just fallen on some hard times where everybody’s injured at the same time.” On if TNA’s lighter schedule is the way to go: “Let me put it to you this way: If a company is working five nights a [month], it’s not doing well as a company. So, I really like our schedule, and if I could send a message to anybody, it’d be our locker room. Now is the perfect time for the next Shawn Michaels to step up, the next Triple H to step up. There is nothing but opportunity in front of any of the young Superstars who’s ever wanted to make a name for themselves.”
