• Backstage News On John Cena’s Support For Bray Wyatt In WWE
At WrestleMania 30, John Cena defeated Bray Wyatt in Wyatt’s first ever WrestleMania match.
6 Years later, the two men will once again collide at WrestleMania. The only difference is that Cena is now a 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion and a part-time performer, while Wyatt is now “The Fiend” and a former 2 time World Champion.
According to Tom Colohue, Cena is a massive supporter of Wyatt backstage in WWE and is here to put Wyatt over at the Grandest Stage Of Them All:
“John Cena has gone on record a couple of times and it’s been mentioned to me a couple of times, when it comes to the Elimination Chamber when Bray Wyatt initially became WWE Champion, John Cena really wanted to be pinned by Bray Wyatt.
He then wanted a rematch against Bray Wyatt to once again take the pin, and AJ Styles was added to that match and Luke Harper attacked Bray Wyatt before the match to really amp it up.
John Cena is one person in that locker room who genuinely believes in Bray Wyatt. So I’m confident that he wanted to come back as it where to right a bit of a wrong and help rebuild Bray Wyatt. To help build Bray Wyatt.”
