WWE Ruthless Aggression Era Legend John Cena is currently in the middle of a pretty decent run, where he appears regularly on SmackDown, more or less also due to the Writers Guild of America strike in Hollywood.

During a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’, our Olympic Hero remembered John’s 2003 heel persona ‘The Doctor of Thuganomics’ and how successful it actually was back then.

Here’s what Kurt Angle had to say:

“John lit it up, he was so good at this and I’m surprised he didn’t begin his career with this, what a great gimmick to have, being able to rap with a beat. Everybody was like ‘holy s**t’ and nobody was like laughing, it was like this guy has something here and everybody was a little jealous, to be honest with you.”

Also during this podcast, Angle revealed who used to be the least liked guy in the locker room during his 1999-2006 run with the WWF/WWE.

Angle admitted that it was none other than John Bradshaw Layfield, who always ribbed everybody but at the same time was widely considered a bully.

Here’s what Kurt said about JBL:

“He was probably the least-liked guy in the locker room. He ribbed so many people and he kind of did it in a bully kind of way. He wasn’t really that mean.

A lot of the guys were a little afraid of him and some of them were just pissed off at him.

But I would say Bradshaw was the best heel in the business as a work, and as a shoot. By the way, I love Bradshaw.”
