In a new episode of 205 Live's weekly backstage documentary, John Cena was featured sharing his thoughts on the brand.
Cena appeared on the program dubbed #205 Life, and gave his opinions on the weekly television product that 205 Live presents as well as the Cruiserweight talents involved with the brand. The longtime WWE Superstar offered high praise for both.
"I think it's incredible," Cena said. "This is what I like most about 205 Live - For the longest time, it was always thought that you had to be a certain build or a certain type of personality to make any sort of impact. What I like about 205 Live is, all of you guys were given a chance to break that stereotype, and it's working. It took a while for [the WWE Universe] to pay attention, so I wanna say shame on you, because these guys bust their butts every week!"
The future WWE Hall Of Famer, who recently returned to WWE on SmackDown Live and appeared on Monday night's RAW, competing and entering himself into the men's 30-man Royal Rumble match at this month's WWE Royal Rumble 2019 pay-per-view, would go on to elaborate on his thoughts.
"205 live is excellent because it gives people a chance, people that actually care about sports entertainment," Cena said. "And I talk to these guys a lot when I'm here, and I watch all the matches all the time when I'm here, and I want it to succeed because I don't feel this company with sports entertainment, at all, should be chained to a certain look, to a certain style. It should cater to what [the WWE Universe] wants."
