John Cena Allegedly Not Impressed with Dolph Ziggler’s Work

While appearing on Wade Keller’s podcast, former WWE writer Kevin Eck recalled his time in WWE and discussed how talents are judged based on their performances with Cena. Eck would reveal that Cena wasn’t impressed with Dolph’s work.

“Cena will be very honest to his assessment of you. Dolph Ziggler’s the first guy that comes to mind, when they had a singles program together, in the beginning, John was all for it. John wanted to work with Dolph. And they did the house show loop together and as the heel, the heel traditionally calls the matches and John was letting Dolph call the matches and he wasn’t impressed.”

“And apparently John gave his assessment to Vince of Dolph and I think that sort of played into Vince’s thoughts already about Dolph and once that program ended it ended rather abruptly because Vince told us in a booking meeting one day: ‘God, I think we’re doing a disservice to John, this is bringing John down’ and so Dolph was moved out of that program.”

    WELL WELL WELL, Johnny sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong. I brought this up a couple of days ago how Johnny was holding Dolph back and I’m just a guy who has been watching wrestling since it was broadcast in black and white. Johnny is jealous because his hoe used to hook up with Dolph and knows Dolph is far superior in the ring than Roid Boy, his new “super hero name”, and RB can’t handle that. Mirror of Hogan’s career of holding people back because they were better than him.

      All Dolph is is Shawn Michaels 2.0. But actually he’s more like 1.5. Everybody knows that.
