• WWE Hall Of Famer Reveals One Mega WrestleMania Moment That’s Left For John Cena
16 Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena has done it all in the WWE (well, almost) and is a future WWE Hall Of Famer for sure.
However, there are still a few things left and a few records that Cena can break. One of this is becoming the 17 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion and breaking Ric Flair’s record.
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley talked about how WWE can involve Ric Flair in Cena’s 17th World Title chase storyline and turn it into a major WrestleMania moment.
Below is what Bubba said:
“There is going to be a large portion of wrestling fans who might not want to see John win since they don’t want to see Ric Flair’s record broken. Listen, it’s tied right now, so the best way to get out of that is to have Flair endorse it.
You have that final sit down between John Cena and Ric Flair where John is torn whether or not he really wants to do this. Does he really want to break the record out of respect for Ric?
Then Ric is the one who talks to him and smacks him in the face and tells him, ‘You go out there and break that record.’ When he wins, Ric Flair hands him the Championship. That’s a mega moment. That’s a WrestleMania moment!”
