Last updated

In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, few names have garnered as much respect and admiration as John Cena.

Recently, in a video for WWE, Cena took a moment to reflect on some of the most iconic matches of his illustrious career. While he had words of appreciation for many, two names stood out: Bray Wyatt and Brock Lesnar.

John Cena on Bray Wyatt: A Unique Storyteller

Cena’s memories of Bray Wyatt, real name Windham Rotunda, are filled with admiration for his unparalleled creativity. He fondly recalled their shared passion for storytelling and their mutual desire to bring something different to the ring.

Cena highlighted their collaborative efforts, such as the Firefly Funhouse match and the unforgettable scene with the child at the cage door.

These moments, according to Cena, were a testament to Wyatt’s unique approach to wrestling. Rather than relying solely on physical prowess, Wyatt always prioritised the art of storytelling, making him a standout performer in Cena’s eyes.

John Cena on Brock Lesnar: The Underrated Legend

When it comes to Brock Lesnar, Cena’s admiration knows no bounds. Describing their encounters in the ring, Cena reminisced about the intensity of Lesnar’s moves, especially his powerful elbows.

But what truly sets Lesnar apart for Cena is his undeniable presence. Whether you’re a fellow wrestler or a member of the audience, it’s nearly impossible to ignore Brock when he’s in the ring.

Cena went on to describe Lesnar as one of the most “giving and gracious” performers he’s ever worked with. Despite his intimidating persona, Lesnar’s commitment to the sport and his fellow wrestlers is evident. Cena even mentioned a ringside sign that read “legitimacy has returned”, perfectly encapsulating the essence of Brock Lesnar.

But it’s not just Lesnar’s in-ring prowess that Cena admires. He appreciates Brock as a genuine individual who’s always upfront and honest: “I love Brock. As a performer, he’s extremely underrated even though he’s in the conversation for the greatest of all time” Cena stated.
