R-Truth On Making John Cena Proud, WALTER On WWE NXT UK, The Velveteen Dream, WWE - Topps Cards

- Above is video of Sarah Schreiber talking to WWE United States Champion R-Truth and Carmella after Truth successfully brought back John Cena's US Open Challenge on last night's SmackDown. Truth retained his title over Andrade and Rey Mysterio in a Triple Threat. Schreiber asked if Truth made Cena proud.

"I made him damn proud, you know what I'm saying? At first it was a dilemma but I had a quick comeuppance after I talked to Carmella and she said, 'You're brave too, John Cena would fight both of them.' I was like, no thank you, no thank you, but she said 'You're brave, too.' We're a team like that, she supports me, gives me my strength, gives me that support, you know what I'm saying? My idol John Cena would've done the same thing, right?," Truth said.
