In a recent interview with NOLA.com, WWE superstar John Cena discussed his current run as the World Heavyweight Champion, and how he wants to elevate the title and put it back on the same level as the WWE Championship:
This is not taken as a shot of disrespect to anyone who has held the title before me, but it’s now viewed as a second-tier championship. (Defending it at WrestleMania 30) will truly put a stamp on making it the real deal. I want the WWE universe to realize that it’s not a second-tier championship. It should be treated with as much respect as the WWE title.
The World Championship match hasn’t been the main event of a WrestleMania since WM 24. With John Cena in the picture, that could very well change.
