Cena Wants to Re-Design the WWE Title, Praises Young Talent

Nick Paglino

During a recent interview conducted for Mix106.1 in Philadelphia, WWE star John Cena discussed several topics, including who he'd most like to wrestle right now other than The Rock, who he feels are the brightest young talents in WWE right now, and more. When the topic of the WWE Spinner Belt came up, Cena noted that it's the most purchased belt in WWE history, but also said the following:

“Being the guy who truly invented it, it needs to change. It has been the way it’s been for years now. It’s had it’s run. It doesn’t even spin anymore. It’s heavy. It’s awkward. It really is. An average championship belt weighs about 12 pounds. The current WWE spinning championship weighs 27 pounds. So we need a rehash. I’m proactively trying to do that, but I’ve only got so much stroke, guys. I can’t do everything.”

Cena mentions that other than The Rock, he'd most like to face Stone Cold Steve Austin, and believes Austin has one match left in him, and although CM Punk wants that match, he'd like to "throw his name into the hat." You can check out the entire interview below:
