Sean Waltman Says John Cena 'Insisted' On Putting Bray Wyatt Over

Not a lot of guys have pinned John Cena clean twice in the span of 48 hours.

Bray Wyatt did it a couple days ago.

But to hear Sean Waltman tell it, Cena had a lot to do with that. 

"I'm not sure what the finish was supposed to be for the match last night," Waltman began, during an episode of his podcast. "But I know this for a fact, that John Cena insisted on putting Bray Wyatt over again last night, insisted on it. That's not just a rumor."

So the finish to the match at the top of the page, the triple threat for the WWE Title on SmackDown this past Tuesday, the pinfall that once and for all gave Bray Wyatt some measure of bragging rights over his old nemesis John Cena, that was all Big Match John's idea.

According to Sean Waltman. 

And also according to Sean Waltman, AJ Styles has been really impressed by the kind of guy Cena is, behind the scenes and in the ring.

"He [AJ Styles] came up and he went, 'I was watching your show' and he goes, 'I just wanted to tell you what you said about John Cena being the man and the best going, you're a hundred percent correct.' He goes, 'anyone that doesn't agree with you, it's because they don't really know John Cena and have never been in the ring with him.'"

2017 is weird, man.
