Three weeks ago, WWE celebrated the 20th anniversary of John Cena's debut in the company. The 16-time world champion stepped into the ring and thanked the WWE Universe for making the past two decades so special, making him one of the biggest superstars in the entire industry.
The Boston champion has helped spread wrestling to every corner of the planet, establishing himself as one of the most iconic Superstars of all time. The leader of the 'Cenation' has progressively moved away from the ring in recent years, thanks to the advancing age and the desire to make it into the cinema, which is currently going well.
Following the advice of the legendary The Rock, Cena has quickly become one of the most requested and appreciated actors in Hollywood, both in the world of cinema and in terms of TV series and television programs. During his long and illustrious career, Rey Mysterio has been part of countless memorable storylines.
After the huge celebration reserved for John Cena, WWE wanted to dedicate an entire month to the celebrations of another great and legendary athlete of the company: Rey Mysterio.

I hadn't done a big storyline with one of my partners or a tag team partner that I had held the belts with."
