In Megacon in Orlando, Florida, John Cena took part in a Q&A where he was asked who he thought would be the future of the WWE.

 

John Cena’s answer you might ask? Well, Cena put over The Velveteen Dream, stating that he has his eye on him and can see big things for him in the future.

 

Cena used an analogy comparing himself to an old Jedi Master looking upon the rookie and declaring he could be “The One”.

 

The Velveteen Dream is currently competing in NXT but you all might know him from when he was a contestant in the sixth season of the WWE competition WWE Tough Enough.

 

He went by his real name Patrick and despite being one of the favourites to win the competition, he was eliminated in the 5th episode due to a perceived lack of humility, placing 9th overall in the series.

 

As Cena said, he could be “The One” so we’ll just have to wait and see how The Velveteen Dream develops in NXT…
