Triple H Talks John Cena’s Success, Daniel Bryan Being “The Guy”, WWE SummerSlam

Chris Cash

Triple H recently spoke with NBC Sports Radio's Mike Dunsmore to promote WWE SummerSlam this weekend. In a very candid interview, Hunter discussed why John Cena's been so successful, Daniel Bryan's future, and much more. 

Listen below to the full interview, but here are some of the highlights:

On Daniel Bryan/John Cena match at SummerSlam:

"Is the torch being passed? Is this..the Hogan/Andre moment? Is this that moment in time where fans are going to say 'I was there when the future changed and Daniel Bryan became the guy', like a lot of people think that he will? Or is this the moment where John Cena continues to cement himself as the face of the WWE of this generation?…I think there's a lot of people that do believe that the change is imminent, and for that reason, there's a lot of hype and a lot of excitement around this event."

On why John Cena is one of the greatest of all time:

"I think he resonates with people..there's honesty to John. John is what you see. Some people look at that and they think that that is a a bogus, white meat, good guy, hero character that he puts on, and it's really not. That's just John Cena…he is the guy that's out there doing almost 400 Make-a-Wish kids and is extremely passionate about it. He is the guy that came to us and said 'Hey, we should work with Susan G. Komen'..he's the guy that is dedicated. To me, there's no surprise…I think, because he's so honest and so truthful, people can resonate with him. And if they don't buy into that…they can see exactly what they want to hate with the world.
