Shelton Benjamin talks about John Cena

John Cena has had a huge impact on the sports entertainment business. In addition to making WWE history, the Boston champion has contributed more than any other to the spread of wrestling in every corner of the planet. The leader of the 'Cenation' has gradually moved away from the ring in recent years, complicit in advancing age and the desire to make it into the cinema.

Following in the footsteps of the legendary The Rock, John quickly became one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. The 16-time world champion, who hasn't played an official match since SummerSlam 2021, recently appeared on Raw to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his debut with the company.

According to insiders, we will have to wait until WrestleMania 39 to see him in action again. Interviewed by 'Insider' a few days ago, Shelton Benjamin revealed some valuable advice that Cena gave him to break into people's hearts.

Shelton Benjamin on John Cena

“I remember meeting John Cena and asking him how he managed to get so good. John replied that he had worked hard to become a well-rounded performer and to entertain fans with his promos of him.

He confided to me that he was sitting at home all day and talking to himself in front of the mirror. This is a part of wrestling that many aspiring superstars don't understand. Many guys think wrestling is just a sequence of moves, but that's not the case.

This business has a million different facets” - said Shelton Benjamin. Shelton also spoke of his friend Brock Lesnar: "When it comes to the best superstars of the modern era, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, John Cena, The Undertaker and the Beast come to mind.

Brock cannot fail to be placed on the list of the greatest ever, having had an impact that has very few equals in wrestling history. From my point of view, 'The Beast Incarnate' is synonymous with professional wrestling. I know everyone doesn't like Lesnar, but his career speaks for itself”.

During the conversation, Benjamin revealed that his initial role in the group was going to be a Suge Knight-type character that was later given to MVP instead. "They didn't know what to do with me and what they were doing, you know," Shelton Benjamin said.

"I don't think anyone was on board with, myself included. So when you approached [me] with [the idea for The Hurt Business], I think you said I could be the Suge Knight character and everything."
