John Cena Confronted WWE Celebrity Backstage About Stealing His Gimmick


John Cena is understood for being invisible, as a result of you’ll be able to’t see him. He even has a well-known hand gesture to let his opponents know this whereas he’s wrestling them within the ring.

Professional wrestling is a dog-eat-dog enterprise and it’s essential to shield your territory. Cena noticed a younger Mike Bennett doing his “you’ll be able to’t see me” gesture, and he needed to say one thing about it.

Whereas chatting with Lucha Libre On-line, Bennett, who wrestled for WWE as Mike Kanellis, revealed a narrative about John Cena getting very protecting of his gimmick. This befell throughout an episode of Sunday Evening Warmth in 2007 when Bennett was an enhancement expertise.

“We have been wrestling Cryme Tyme. It was my first time ever working for WWF doing additional work. They wished to get Cryme Tyme over. So that they put us in there. And I keep in mind calling this spot with JTG and on the time he had gold enamel in, that he would put in and name it as grill. So each time he did like a transfer he would he would take his fingers like this and sort of present his grill. And and so we got here up with this concept, or he got here up with this concept that I’d do that spot (mimicking enamel grinding) and I’d rise up over on him after which I’d mimic him, after which he would flip it round as sort of an excellent child face. He’s dynamic there.”

“Sadly, what occurred was this ended up wanting too near this (You’ll be able to’t see me taunt). Sure, so I feel you’ll be able to see the place that is going. I feel somebody advised Mr. Cena that I had gone on the market and I had performed this (You’ll be able to’t see me taunt) on Sunday Evening Warmth. So after I acquired to the again, on my very first match, John Cena was there to tell me that I shouldn’t be doing this (You’ll be able to’t see me) in any manner, form or kind. It was put to me not so properly. Which is humorous as a result of after I acquired to go (to WWE), after I went again to WWE, I by no means acquired to inform him that story which I wished to. I really actually loved seeing him after I went again.”

“He was a really down-to-earth and a really cool man. I actually loved interacting with him. He was tremendous useful with every thing. However I feel at the moment, I don’t blame him. Right here’s this, you recognize, in his eyes, right here’s in all probability this punk child copying him what he’s doing. That’s his cash maker. It’s his bread-and-butter. I’d in all probability be pissed too. I’d be like, yo, you don’t even work right here. What are you doing? It was a easy mistake. I assumed I used to be performed. I went again to my lodge that evening and I used to be like: ‘Properly, I’m by no means working in wrestling once more. John Cena hates my guts’. However now it simply sort of makes a shaggy dog story. However on the time I genuinely thought that: ‘I’m performed. By no means working once more. That’s it. John Cena is the highest of the sport and he thinks I simply copied him’. So it ended up being a shaggy dog story. However on the time, I used to be terrified.”

John Cena could be very straightforward to see now. He’s set to star in Quick 9 (at any time when it lastly comes out) and there are lots of extra tasks to come back. He’ll even be the Peacemaker within the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel, and he’s filming a HBO Max spin-off collection in Canada for the character. That’s the reason why followers actually gained’t see him at WrestleMania this yr.
