John Cena isn't back in WWE just to do his act, he wants to help the talent in the locker room and give back.
Cena is showing up to television tapings and, if he's not on TV, he is working dark matches. He is also working the live event schedule.
The 16-time WWE champion might be a ring veteran, but he was a rookie in Hollywood not too long ago and made sure he learned from those more experienced from him in different genres on different sets. He wants to do the same for younger wrestlers now that he's back.
"I watch WWE. I still watch when I'm there. I watch as much of the matches as I can and I put myself in their shoes. When they do something that I wouldn't necessarily do, it's not like, 'Fucking kids don't get it. Why did they do that?' I can learn just by watching," said Cena when speaking to Chris Hardwick on ID1OT.
Sami Zayn backed up Cena's claim, posting the following tweet after Saturday's live event:
John Cena watched my match with Finn Balor tonight in Fort Myers, FL and was raving about how great it was, and it made me feel good.— Sami Zayn (@SamiZayn) August 8, 2021
