• Paul Heyman On How John Cena Felt At ECW One Night Stand 2006
At ECW One Night Stand 2006, John Cena lost the WWE Championship to Rob Van Dam.
Cena received one of the loudest negative reactions of his WWE career on that night.
During a recent interview with Metro UK, Heyman said the following about that match:
“John Cena feeds off of the interaction with a live audience like very few people on the face of the planet in history ever have, ever could, ever would, or ever have the ability to generate that level of passion from a live crowd.
I think John Cena, to this day, loved every single micro moment of it. Anybody that says that they wouldn’t cherish the opportunity to work with John Cena on any level is a fool.
Rob Van Dam tore the house down with whatever opponent was in the ring with him on a nightly basis for 5 years in ECW.
So, while many people are so enthralled with the memories of ECW One Night Stand 2005 and especially the Rob Van Dam – John Cena title match from 2006, this was every night of our lives for 7 years.
This was what we did, this was the product that we presented. This was truly ECW.”
