NOLA.com has an interview with John Cena, who was promoting WrestleMania 30 tickets going on sale on November 16th. Here are a couple of highlights from the interview:

On the World Heavyweight Championship being viewed as a 'second-tier' title: "This is not taken as a shot of disrespect to anyone who has held the title before me, but it's now viewed as a second-tier championship. (Defending it at WrestleMania 30) will truly put a stamp on making it the real deal. I want the WWE universe to realize that it's not a second-tier championship. It should be treated with as much respect as the WWE title."

His WrestleMania dream opponent: "I really got to live a dream the past few years having some big marquee matchups with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. And when you rub elbows with a guy like The Rock, you truly are in the company of the greatest of all-time. It was like watching a prize fight where everyone is just throwing haymakers. For us to be interactive over a 2 1/2 year span, it was pretty impressive, especially in this day and age. It was a dream scenario for me."

Cena also discussed WrestleMania in New Orleans, his first memory of watching WrestleMania, surpassing Ric Flair's record of World title reigns, his favorite WrestleMania match and more. You can read the full article by clicking here.
