A former WWE star has criticized John Cena for having “painful” wrestling skills while adding that “he walked around like he had two left feet.”

John Cena is considered by many people to be one of the greatest WWE superstars of all-time, but he has his critics just like anybody else.

Despite winning 16 WWE World Titles and being one of the best main event draws in company history going back to his first WWE Title win in 2005, there are still people that take shots at him, particularly as an in-ring performer.

On a recent episode of the Cafe de Rene podcast with Rene Dupree, former WWE superstar Maven was critical of Cena’s performance in the ring.

“He fell into the category of like the Lugers of the world that just couldn’t… I mean he couldn’t, as middle of a ground of a wrestler I was, he was bad. It’s painful to watch him run. It’s painful…”

“Here’s the best way that I can think of describing him. Have you ever had a dream and in your dream you’re trying to accomplish something athletic and for whatever reason you just can’t do it? You know that feeling? Like you can’t run or get to or swim or whatever. Like to me, that’s how he just lived life. He just was like constantly just couldn’t move the right way.”

While Maven criticized Cena’s ability in the ring, he did praise John Cena for becoming very popular with the WWE crowd.

“Then again, like I said, the son of a b*tch was more over than anybody ever could’ve imagined. He’s a good entertainer. He could talk his ass off. Talk cirlces around everybody.”

“And again, John was one of those guys that I knew in passing. You know, we never hung out. I don’t even think we never went out to eat together. But always just could not have been more polite to me. So, another guy that I could not be happier for his success. That said, he walked around like he had two left feet.”

John Cena will make his WWE return on the Monday, March 6th edition of Raw in Boston with recent reports noting that tickets are selling very fast since the news of Cena’s appearance was announced.
