John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company on his back throughout the PG era. From 2017 John Cena became a part-timer in WWE and has appeared sporadically due to his busy schedule in Hollywood. That could change after SummerSlam, but he is still booked for the SmackDown supershow at Madison Square Garden.
John Cena competed against the best of the best the WWE has to offer and that also includes some of the more disgraced ex-WWE Superstars such as Alberto Del Rio. All the while, he worked hard to make sure that the fans got their money’s worth while he produced riveting matches in the process.
While speaking to Pro Wrestling Defined, Alberto Del Rio gave massive props to John Cena for helping him become a better wrestler thanks to his various feuds with the leader of Cenation.
“First of all, thank you, John. Thank you! I learned so much from you. I have been saying this for years and I’m going to continue saying this for more years to come. John Cena doesn’t get the credit that he deserves from the fans. He is a great wrestler. A real wrestler. You don’t even talk to him before the match. Like, you just go there, and he knows. He was the one teaching me. I’ve never said this to the fans, but they always ask me, ‘Why I’m so good building the matches and like being the architect to put those matches together or how to take the fans on that rollercoaster of emotions. Of course, there were many people and wrestlers that helped me on the way, but John Cena was the one. Like, I became a better wrestler the day I wrestled John Cena. When we started that first feud, at the end of it, I was a better wrestler just because I worked with John Cena.”
John Cena also made it clear he plans to stick around after the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view if he wins the WWE Universal Championship from Roman Reigns. We will have to wait and see how his match against Roman Reigns at WWE SummerSlam will be booked as we approach the pay-per-view and if he will end up winning the match or not.
