• Former WWE Writer Freddy Prinze Jr Says Triple H Didn’t Want To Be The Face Of The PG Era, John Cena Not Liking Him
During a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, former WWE writer Freddy Prinze Jr talked about John Cena’s dislike for him during his time in WWE.
Below is what Freddy said:
“John Cena and I were the only one’s that really didn’t get along. It got to the point where, and I respect what John brought to WWE. He had to hold that company on his shoulders during the PG era when no one else wanted to.
That could’ve been Hunter, but he didn’t want that cross. He wanted to be more Rated R and do the stuff he liked to do. John took that upon himself. So for that, fans should be grateful, because it’s what made the company enough money to go to the direction that hopefully we all want it to go in.
He did not like that I was there. He called me Ashton Kutcher for like the first three months that I was there, and walked in to the one of the acting classes in the middle of it and just sat down in the middle of the class in between the two wrestlers. And I said, ‘yo man, let me talk to you outside for a bit.’
He comes outside, and I’m not one to have confrontation with some giant muscle head dude. But I’m not going to take sh*t off of anybody or otherwise you’re dead in that company.
So we go outside and I’m like, ‘look bro, you’re not in this class because you know how to do this. You don’t want to teach these guys or girls, so let me do my job. Let me do what Vince wants me to do, and just stay out of here.’
To his credit he goes, ‘look I know I approached this stuff in a barbaric sort of way. But you either got it or you don’t.’ I said, ‘dude you’re right about that. But you can get better or worse, depending on the type of instruction you have, and do you want them to have instruction from Vince in the promo class, or from me?'”
