Cena Comments On Crowd Participation At RAW Tonight, Foley Talks Daniel Bryan Being 'The Guy'
"Wanna pre thank the Chicago @WWEUniverse tonight for what I think will be a CANT miss #RAW there'll b plenty of audience participation!!"
"You know what, this is the truth. I'm not pandering to Virginia right now. Not that I'm above it, but I'm not right now. I was helping my son with his Civil War homework. Luckily, unlike almost everything else my kids study in school, I do know a lot about the Civil War. When Robert E. Lee's name came up, I said that one of the things that made him a great general was that when he signed the treaty at Appomattox Court House, he knew that the gig was up. He knew when to surrender. Literally, that night, I thought I should be like Robert E. Lee, because to fight this thing would just drag myself and the people who like me down. I've decided instead to look all of the positives that WWE has to offer instead of being this voice crying out in the darkness about the way I think things should be run. Besides, there's a good chance they'll turn it around. If they do and WrestleMania ends in 75,000 people on their feet chanting 'Yes! Yes!', I'll be the first one to admit I was wrong."
Foley also talked about his recent comments stating that Bryan was more over than he ever was.
"I was never the guy," Foley admitted. "The being really in big capital letters. He is THE guy. People are showing up specifically to cheer him on and follow him on this journey. My title victory over The Rock was importantly historically because of the number of people who switched channels to WWE from WCW during what we called The Monday Night Wars. But I was always like the third or fourth guy. I had a lot of layers to the characters and put a lot of myself into those characters so that people could make an emotional connection. I'm beyond flattered and thankful that people still remember me so fondly fourteen years after I stopped wrestling full-time, but I was never as popular at any given point or time as Daniel is right now and I will stand by that completely."
