While reminiscing his memories of two decades ago, Cena said, “I had one meeting with Mr. McMahon before this and I was pushed into his office and Michael Hayes asked what do we do with this, and Mr. McMahon’s first sentence to me, it was a short meeting. He said cut his (Kurt) p***c hair and then I was out of the office.”

He continued, “Watching this, me more than likely just wanting to remember all the things that I was supposed to do. So probably just go out there and don’t mess up. But I’m watching Kurt Angle, he appears to be very upset and very frustrated, but also very confident, still smiling.”

Remembering the crowd, Cena further said, “We have a sold-out crowd in Chicago. And I think that if we had just slowed down, they would have been more interested. But they weren’t. Because we’re going so damn fast because that was the story of the match.”

The 16-time WWE World Champion has moved to Hollywood as wrestling became his part-time endeavor. The 43-year-old superstar is, however, slotted to return to the wrestling arena soon. And when that happens, his admirers will go crazy for sure.
