On the most recent episode of his podcast, Something to Wrestle, Bruce discusses the 2006 Unforgiven pay-per-view, which was headlined by John Cena and Edge in a TLC Match for the WWE Championship. speaking about the work ethic of John Cena, Bruce Prichard would say that he absolutely loves them and would kill to have five guys on the roster like John Cena at any point in time.
“Every time John would go out, John would have a good match,” Bruce began. “John would do everything that he could to have a different match every night and experiment, and not do the same thing every night. That's who Cena was. That's who Cena is. I would kill to have had, you know, five guys on the roster that are like John Cena.”
When asked if John Cena would be on the Mount Rushmore of talent that He has worked with over the years, Bruce wouldn't hesitate to put him on that fictitious landmark and put three legendary names beside him.
“Absolutely. Love the guy to death,” Bruce said of John Cena. “Undertaker [would awesome go on Bruce’s Mount Rushmore]. I'd put Austin and rock on there [also].”
Unfortunately for Bruce, John Cena is firmly in a part-time position in present-day WWE. Most recently, his Summer of Cena came to an end at SummerSlam. The Summer of Cena also featured a limited NFT release which John Cena now calls a failure. Learn more here.
