: The only dream you have ever turned into a nightmare is Triple H's, because ten years ago he chose you, to teach you how to be a success in the WWE. And what did you do about it? YOU NEVER LIVED UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL! EVER! No no no no no, I don't fault him
; he chose you because he saw what we all saw: you are the most gifted WWE Superstar ever. You make every single thing in this ring look easy. But with that you got cocky, and you got a bad attitude to boot, and then you got lazy. You were the YOUNGEST WWE Champion in history! This man (Hunter) gave you Hall of Fame mentors to learn from, and what did you do? Kick back, relax, and let some scrappy kid in a t-shirt and a ball cap
ruin his dream! I AM NOT
YOU, Randy Orton! I am John Cena! I have never been asked to be called the face of ANYTHING! I'm just the first to show up, and the last to leave. And that's the way it is, Jack.
: It's funny...I couldn't help but noticed you used the word "work." Little example for one second...
(Pulls Daniel Bryan to the center of the ring to a massive
home state pop) John Cena
: Tell these people your name please. Daniel Bryan
: My name is Daniel Bryan
. John Cena
: We'll get to know you a little more. Has your mother or father ever been a WWE Superstar or champion, at all? Daniel Bryan
: No, my father is a long-scaler actually. John Cena
: So...since you've been here, you've had to work
for everything you've got? Daniel Bryan
: YES. (Crowd goes into massive "YES" chant) John Cena
: You hear that? The reason they cheer for him is because he works and he earns it. A guy like you has been given ''every! single! thing!''
in the WWE! I'm about to hit you in the face with some truth. Ever since you came to the WWE training center, you were untouchable, you were bullet-proof, you couldn't be fired. Nobody could touch Randy Orton because they
liked you. And then you get to the WWE and what happens? You get sheltered behind the best performer in the business
. Nothing's changed, Randy. All you do is hide behind Triple H. All you do is hide behind Stephanie McMahon
. And you got the balls to stand in this ring and say you're better than anybody here?! You say you're bigger than all of this?
You have always blamed everyone else for your failures, you've pointed fingers and you've made excuses. You've had behavior problems in the ring, you've had behavior problems outside
the ring, and the sad thing is, the TLC match this Sunday is the biggest in WWE history. That is why everybody is here tonight, this changes the very course of the WWE. But you want these championships because you're selfish, because you feel you deserve it, and maybe, just maybe, if you hold onto this, you can finally walk around with the rest of the Superstars and say "Hey guys, look. I'm finally what I was supposed to be 10 years ago
." Every...single...time I have held either of these championships, my business card has remained the same: "You want some, come get some."
... John Cena
: And here's the real truth: Whether these guys in the ring like me or not, they respect me because they know it. Whether it's Triple H or it's Shawn Michaels
in a WrestleMania
match, whether it's Booker T
...hell, nobody wanted to give Dolph Ziggler
a chance, what did I do? I said "Let's fight." Everybody said it was a bad idea to give CM Punk
a championship match when he was going to leave the WWE! All I saw was "The Best in the World." Hell, the only legitimate
championship shot that Daniel Bryan's ever had was against me
and he won.
(To Daniel Bryan) So I'll say it right here in front of your home town, if I win this Sunday, I look forward to the rematch. A fair
rematch. John Cena
: See, that's
what being a champion is all about, a certain level of respect, and last week I wasn't going to take you out, I just wanted to make a statement. That when the chips are down, I can be just as brutal as you.
So right now, I'm going to make one more statement because I know what this means to me...(Holds out his hand for a handshake of respect) John Cena
: This Sunday will be physical and it will be brutal and I will be at my very best. I just hope you are too, because after this Sunday, the last thing anyone is going to want to deal with is just another Randy Orton excuse.
Good luck on Sunday, you're gonna need it.
