John Cena is a big fan of 205 Live and is glad fans are starting to take notice of the show.
The stars of 205 Live are documenting their life on the road with a series of social media posts under the hashtag #205Life. In a recent clip posted by Jack Gallagher, John Cena was a special guest, giving his thoughts on the 205 Live brand.
“Ok. You have to remember, I’m a bit of a dinosaur, I’m a little bit long in the tooth, I’m a bit of veteran, I’m a bit seasoned, I’m a bit experienced - so I hope this isn’t taking away cool factor points from 205 Live, but I think it’s incredible," said Cena. "This is what I like the most about 205 Live. For the longest time it was always thought that you had to be a certain build, or a certain type of personality to make any sort of impact. What I love about 205 Live is, all you guys are given a chance. You’re given a chance to break that stereotype. And it’s working. It took a while for (fans) to start paying attention, so I want to say shame on you because these guys bust their butts every week. But now you guys have come around, so we’re all cool and once again, I’m like the old guy saying it’s cool, so by me saying it’s cool, does that make it not cool?"
Cena continued, "205 Live is excellent because it gives people a chance. People that actually care about sports entertainment. And I talk to these guys a lot when I’m here and I watch all the matches all the time when I’m here and I want it to succeed because I don’t feel this company or sports entertainment at all should be chained to a certain look, to a certain style - it should cater to what (fans) want. And the cool thing is, you guys want to see them. And you don’t want to see me...”

One superstar who has broken the 205 Live mold is Mustafa Ali, who was recently moved to the SmackDown main roster and scored a pinfall victory over WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.
