WWE Star Reveals Touching Moment With John Cena
A current WWE star has shared a story about how John Cena reached out to them with some great advice before that person was signed to a contract.
John Cena is highly regarded by wrestlers and fans as one of the greatest superstars in WWE history. It’s not just because Cena is a record-tying 16-time World Champion in WWE, but also because he’s a nice guy that is genuinely well-liked by the people he works with.
Another guy who shares a first name with John Cena is Johnny Gargano, who started in WWE in 2016 on the NXT brand. In August 2022, Gargano signed a full-time deal with WWE to join the main roster on Raw.
During an interview with Catch Club, Johnny Gargano told a story about how John Cena talked to him after Gargano had a dark match that Cena was impressed with.
“After the match was over, I walked out and I was standing in the hallway, and someone came up to me and put their hand around me, I looked, and it was John Cena.”
“And he said ‘I just want to say that was amazing. Keep doing your thing, man. You belong here. You deserve to be here one day, and you will be one day. Just keep working. This was one of the best matches I’ve seen in a long time.’ And put that in perspective, he’s John Cena, and he came up to an extra. He had no reason to do that.”
Going into WrestleMania 39 this week, John Cena is set to challenge Austin Theory for the United States Title. Gargano is not on the WrestleMania 39 card right now, but hopefully he can be part of the biggest show in the future.
