In a recent interview with The Pat McAfee Show, John Cena discussed several topics, including what he told Cody Rhodes in the ring following Cody’s title win at WrestleMania 40.

“I told him in the ring, and I’m sure he’ll be able to relay this same message, when I got to embrace him, he had the Championship in his right hand and I said do you feel that, and he said yes, and I said do you feel how heavy it is and he said yes, and I said it will get heavier every day, because that is the burden you bear of trying to craft the path to being the greatest of all-time.

I hope, and this should be the goal for the business, every performer should pass the torch up, so I hope a year from now, two years from now, three years from now, we can all sit here and be an advocate that Cody Rhodes is the greatest of all-time, because that’s the way it should work.”
