A WWE Superstar has heaped praise on John Cena and urged others to learn from him as much as possible.
After making occasional appearances through the summer, Cena returned to WWE to host Payback in September which teed up a regular run on SmackDown. The return has been Cena’s longest for several years as he continues to carve out a career in Hollywood.
However, Cena has repeatedly reiterated his commitment to the WWE cause, despite acknowledging the fact he’s nearing the end of his in-ring career.
Speaking in a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Baron Corbin — who has been a WWE regular for almost a decade himself– spoke of the importance of learning from the sure-fire Hall of Famer. The Lone Wolf added that what Cena’s doing in giving back to the wrestling industry is “incredible.”
“It’s amazing for the business. It’s amazing for the Superstars. For a Grayson Waller. I don’t think he ever sat there and be like ‘Man I’m gonna be in the ring with John Cena’ That’s just not something you think about [in] this day and age because you don’t….Cena’s a movie star. What he’s doing is incredible. The level he’s reached is amazing.
So you’re like,’ Oh, he’s not going to come back and wrestle and if he does, it’s going to be Roman or it’s going to be Seth’, but he’s like, John is so giving back to this industry, this business because he loves it with every bit of what he does.”
I’ve soaked up an immense amount of knowledge from John and I see John on a regular basis because I go to his gym and we talk or we’ve been to dinner. His mind for this is just leaps and bounds above 99% of the people in this industry.
Now he’s passing it along to guys like Grayson Waller and stepping in the ring with Solo. All of these guys, they’re giving an opportunity to get in the ring with greatness where they may never have thought they’re gonna do that.”
John Cena To Wrestle At Crown Jewel
It’s been announced that John Cena’s WWE run will continue at least through Crown Jewel on November 4th. At the event in Saudi Arabia, the 16-time World Champion will take on Solo Sikoa as his issues with The Bloodline continue.
The foundations for the match were laid on the October 20th episode of SmackDown when Cena addressed his lengthy losing streak in singles matches. After facing his failures, Cena challenged the SmackDown roster to take him on.
The call was answered by Sikoa, but the pair got into a wild brawl before the match could get started.
