• AEW Personality Says Becoming ‘Superman’ Always Hurt John Cena
While speaking on the ARN podcast, AEW Head Coach Arn Anderson discussed John Cena’s feud with Nexus and why winning it hurt Cena more than it benefitted him.
Below is what he said:
“Why you would basically no sell that and become Superman and overcome all the other odds to just win is part of the reason Cena gets all the backlash from everybody that he does. All those that are anti-Cena, it’s for situations just like that.
If all those minds you’re talking about are feeling the same way, that if John is going to win and survive, ok, but it should be by the skin of his teeth. Everybody can’t be wrong. So, I think they were correct in that. I think it hurt John more than it helped him. Even if you did have John sneak one out, a quick one, two, three, you can have that sink in for just a second and you can still have 3 of the Nexus guys there to go ahead and squash him.”
