“Every time John would go out, John would have a good match,” Bruce began. “John would do everything that he could to have a different match every night and experiment, and not do the same thing every night. That’s who Cena was. That’s who Cena is. I would kill to have had, you know, five guys on the roster that are like John Cena,” Bruce said.
