• JBL Reveals What He Told Vince McMahon About John Cena Before Main Event Push

During an episode of Table For 3 on the WWE Network, WWE Hall Of Famer JBL talked about working with John Cena during the Ruthless Aggression Era.

Below is what Bradshaw said about the 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion:

“Cena from day one, you know, it’s a different match going from 8 minutes to 30 minutes. 30 Minutes is tough. You gotta take your own role and some people can’t ever make that transition.

I think he may have done longer matches with Kurt Angle first, who’s one of the greatest of all time, but if not, then I was the second guy to take Cena for 30 minutes. He was comfortable from day one.

I remember Vince asking me, he goes, ‘how is he?’ I said, ‘that kid is freaking awesome.’ I mean he’s that good. And he was from the get-go.

He got into deep water and a lot of people just drowned.”

In the co-main event of WrestleMania 21 in 2005, John Cena defeated JBL to win his 1st WWE Championship.
