John Cena is a household name in the world of professional wrestling, as well as pop culture now. He has done it all in the pro wrestling world and now has a successful career in Hollywood. He also helped out a former WWE Superstar in a huge way.
For the WrestleMania 28 card, former WWE Superstar Brodus Clay’s match against Heath Slater was cut due to time constraints. Vince McMahon also considered canceling The Funkasaurus’ dancing segment before Cena’s match against The Rock.
While speaking on Chris Van Vliet’s Insight podcast, Brodus Clay revealed that Cena intentionally left the backstage area to go to the bathroom shortly before his match. Due to Cena’s absence, Brodus Clay was given time to entertain fans ahead of the main event.
“He [McMahon] was like, ‘I think we’re gonna have to cut it,’” Tyrus said. “And then all of a sudden Cena is getting ready, he’s right behind me, he looks at me and goes, ‘I gotta go to the bathroom.’ I went, ‘What?’ He’s like, ‘I gotta go to the bathroom, I dunno, usually I go to the bathroom I dunno what… eight minutes, six minutes.’ I was like, ‘Six? I can get it in six.’”
The dance segment lasted for around lasted four minutes and 35 seconds. Cena is likely to return to WWE television later this year. We’ll have to see what WWE will have planned for him when he’s back.
