John Cena is a legendary figure in the world of professional wrestling, having made a significant impact during his time in WWE. Despite his accomplishments, he remains a highly polarizing figure in the industry, with opinions on his legacy and contributions varying widely among fans and critics alike. He used to be part of a tag team during the early period of his career and now it seems his former tag partner revealed why they broke up.
The Leader of Cenation did not initially harbor ambitions of becoming a professional wrestler. In fact, he faced a lengthy and challenging journey before he could ultimately achieve his full potential in the world of professional wrestling.
In a recent interview, Bull Buchanan reflected on his brief partnership with John Cena on WWE SmackDown, which lasted from November 2002 to January 2003. During this time, Buchanan was rebranded as B-2 (B²) and teamed up with Cena’s persona as a freestyle rapper.
However, their alliance came to an end after they failed to win the WWE Tag Team Championship from Chavo and Eddie Guerrero on the January 16, 2003, episode of SmackDown.
While speaking on The Insiders Edge Podcast, Buchanan said the alliance was short-lived because Cena did not really need to be in a tag team at all.
“I had a feeling that it wasn’t gonna be a long partnership because he really didn’t need anybody at that time. He was ready to go on his own. That kinda left me, ‘Okay, how do I spin this into something I can do?’ or something I could spin it out of. Never really got the chance to do that.”
John Cena made a highly-anticipated comeback on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, where he had a confrontation with United States Champion Austin Theory. He essentially brutalized the young WWE Superstar in a promo segment.
The Leader Of Cenation is now set to square off against Austin Theory for his title at WrestleMania 39. We will have to wait and see how Cena will fare in his first match in a long time next month.
