• Former WWE Champion Says John Cena Doesn’t Get Enough Credit, Says Doing 1000 Moonsaults & Doing Spot After Spot Isn’t Real Pro-Wrestling
During a recent appearance on Chairshots To The Cranium podcast, former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio discussed working with John Cena during his time in WWE.
Below is what Del Rio had to say about the 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion:
“John Cena is fantastic, seriously. I hate when people don’t give Cena the credit he deserves. These days, unfortunately, some fans – not all the fans, but some fans – they think just because you can do 1,000 moonsaults and you can do spot after spot, they think that’s pro wrestling. That’s not real pro wrestling.
If you can create that magic because you have the skills to take fans on a roller coaster of emotions, that’s real pro wrestling, and there’s no one better than Cena. I learned so much from him.
That part about going out there having fun, hearing the crowd and trying different things to have a great match and entertain them. I always enjoyed my time in that company in those matches with him.”
