-- As noted earlier, ESPN.com has an interview
with Randy Orton
. Orton is asked about Cena's feud with the Rock, to which he responded, "That's an interesting topic. I know them both, and I know Cena a lot better than I know The Rock
, obviously, but I've been in the ring with both cutting promos and wrestling. I have to say, though, talking about the whole ring rust thing, John Cena
has had about 2,000 matches in the last seven years. The Rock? A big, fat zero. So when it comes to ring rust, I don't care what type of athlete you are, and The Rock is obviously an athletic dude, but Cena has been in the ring. He's been at every show and in every show and making appearances and he has been on the road with the WWE
over 300 days a year for the last seven years. The Rock? Virtually non-existent. You see the interviews that The Rock does and he says that he doesn't want to be known as a wrestler. He doesn't want to be known as a sports entertainer or a performer with WWE or a WWE superstar. He wants to be known as an actor. Now all of a sudden he's back in our world telling the fans what they want to hear. He's telling them: "I promise that I will never go away again. I promise that I'm back for good and that I'm here to stay." He said that, what, six or seven weeks ago? Have we even seen him live since then? No. Via satellite. I think Cena will own The Rock. I think Cena is wittier and can go off the cuff. Cena writes his own stuff while The Rock has stuff written for him. It just all comes down to who you are in the ring and what kind of performer you are in the ring, and I think Cena is ten times the performer in the ring that The Rock is. This Monday in Chicago, he'll prove it." You can check out the full interview by clicking here
-- Cena apparently appreciated Orton's comments to ESPN as he just wrote on his Twitter, "Thank you Randy. That means more than you know. Thank you."
-- As noted earlier, a major TNA star was arrested and charged with a DUI. In an update from our original report, the star was arrested last night on Interstate 29 between Fargo and Grand Forks, not today as we reported. It hasn't been made public yet. The star was charged in Grand Forks District court and his hearing was this afternoon. We will try to have more and reveal the name once I have additional confirmation.
