And just like in the NFL the GOAT conversation is one that keeps cropping up in the WWE as well. While Tom Brady is one name that regularly features in the conversation of being the greatest NFL player of all time, WWE superstar John Cena has the same pleasure when it comes to the WWE.

“I kind of follow Tom Brady because he’s kind of following me. I’m from New England, he goes to New England and wins a bunch of championships. Then I moved to Tampa, it just so happens that he moves down to Tampa and now he’s trying to get his own thing started over there,” said Cena.

“So I follow him just because it’s like we’re both stalking each other. At least that’s the story I tell myself,” Cena jokingly added.

Cena though said that he admires Tom Brady for what he’s managed to achieve over the years. Pushing himself to the limit, Brady sure does live up to Cena’s motto of ‘Hustle, loyalty, respect.’ 

“I just I really admire his dedication to winning and to just push himself to the max and creating a good team environment. And I think I can only speculate that he’s bestowing that wisdom upon any team.”

Tom Brady and John Cena is definitely a bromance we didn’t see coming. But hey, it’s not one that we can’t help but stan either.
