Cena said two weeks ago he proclaimed that he would not quit, and there were many times that he wanted to give up, but every time he said NO he knew there would be more pain and suffering. Cena said he gave his word and he kept it. Cena said there will be a rematch in Hell in a Cell. Cena said Orton will say it was a fluke, and the championship around his waist is a three-week rental.
