Cena hailed Miz as one of the finest wrestlers of all time. Calling him a victim of ignorance, Cena pointed out that Miz is one of the most hardworking athletes and inspiration as well.

WATCH THIS NOW. The Miz IS the definition of both passion and perseverance,” Cena wrote. “Underrated only in the eyes of ignorance. THE hardest worker I know. An inspiration to me and proof that REAL success takes earning every inch. Awesome doesn’t NOT do you justice. Respect!”

The Miz earlier said that the WWE 24 documentary gives “an in-depth, honest look” into his entire career. The documentary is streaming on Peacock TV in the US and WWE Network worldwide.

John Cena recently spoke about his WrestleMania journey

The Miz and John Cena have headlined a couple of WrestleManias back in the day. Although Miz was a part of this years’ mania, John Cena was not there despite being an integral part of the showdown for almost two decades.

“I almost had the best transition you can possibly have,” Cena told Bleacher Report. “My last two WrestleManias were very interesting: an almost cinematic-type match, and before that, I was a fan. I got to sit in the crowd and see WrestleMania. I got to see the product, I got to see a stadium full of fans and it was beautiful, I felt at home.”

Cena is focusing on his Hollywood career for a while and has quite some heavyweight movies under his name. “It’s more reassuring to me to not only see that WWE has a life after me, which is inevitable for sure, but that life is thriving.”

He concludes that the wrestling and headlining part of his life is over. “There’s so many great storylines, so many great matches. It’s called WrestleMania, not CenaMania, you know? I’ve been a part [of it], and that part is over.”

Cena’s most recent venture, DC movie Suicide Squad would be out in the theatres on August 6, 2021. Cena has been busy promoting the movie and also working on other projects subsequently.
