John Cena pays RESPECT to RELEASED WWE Superstar

Last updated

The wrestling community recently experienced a significant shakeup as WWE announced the release of several of its talents. Among those released was the long-standing WWE veteran, Dolph Ziggler. His journey with WWE began in 2004, and over the years, he has showcased his prowess and dedication to the sport. The news of his release has led to an outpouring of reactions from fellow wrestlers and fans alike, including John Cena.

Cena, a name of course synonymous with WWE, took to X (previously known as Twitter) to pay his respects to Ziggler.

The 16-time World Champion, who has had his fair share of face-offs with Ziggler in the ring, highlighted Ziggler’s impressive match count during his WWE tenure.

He tweeted, “One thousand five hundred and fifty-four matches. @HEELZiggler #Respect.” This tweet not only emphasises Ziggler’s commitment to WWE but also the respect he commands among his peers.
