In a recent interview on the "Insight" podcast, WWE Superstar Baron Corbin offered high praise for John Cena, declaring that Cena's wrestling acumen is "unparalleled, surpassing 99% of industry professionals." Corbin's endorsement lends credence to WWE's own branding of Cena as the "greatest of all time," elevating it from mere marketing hyperbole to an informed opinion from within the ranks.
Corbin, who has had the privilege of sharing the ring with Cena during a memorable 2017 SummerSlam feud, maintains a close relationship with the 16-time world champion. "The wealth of knowledge I've gleaned from John is immeasurable," Corbin said.
"We cross paths regularly, whether it's at his gym or during a casual dinner, and the insight he offers is invaluable."
John Cena's WWE Comeback
Cena recently returned to WWE after the SAG-AFTRA strike put Hollywood productions on hold.
While he has ventured into acting, Cena makes it abundantly clear that WWE remains his primary allegiance. Notably, he's been actively involved with grooming WWE's next generation of stars, a move applauded by Corbin. Corbin went on to say, "Many speculated that if Cena returned, he'd only square off against big names like Roman Reigns or Seth Rollins.
However, John is passionately committed to nurturing this industry he so deeply loves." Cena's recent matches with rising talents such as Grayson Waller and Solo validate Corbin's observation, underscoring Cena's willingness to "pass the torch." "Being in the ring with Cena is more than just an opportunity; it's essentially a masterclass in wrestling," Corbin concluded.
"His generosity in sharing his expertise is shaping the future of WWE, offering newcomers a chance to refine their craft under the tutelage of a true legend." This glowing endorsement from Baron Corbin not only substantiates WWE's lofty claims about Cena but also illustrates Cena's pivotal role in shaping the future of professional wrestling. With this blend of talent and mentorship, Cena's influence seems poised to resonate within WWE for years to come.
