The Architect said, “John’s the GOAT man. John’s the best, John is incredible. And you know, I’m a footnote, really, in his career. John influenced so many talent over the years, he was a generational guy. For me though, on the other side of that, John influenced what I do so heavily.”

He added, “I took a ton of inspiration from John. I learned a lot being in the ring with John. I learned a lot watching John behind the scenes. And John still is a mentor to me, even now, even though he isn’t around that often.”

Cena has elevated The Architect’s career in a lot of ways when Rollins mainstreamed as a singles star on the main roster. Their feud indeed helped the 36-year-old to become one of the top stars in the WWE.
