John Cena is a great friend to have backstage, but he didn’t see eye to eye with Matt Riddle at first. The Original Bro was eventually able to turn the 16x World Champion around.
Ever since Matt Riddle signed with WWE, he has been one of the mainstays of WWE television, be it in NXT or the main roster. His in-ring skills are one of the best in the company and he already has a good fan following. He still had to win John Cena over.
Matt Riddle’s character has certainly gotten over with fans thanks to his comedic timing and generally cool attitude while still being that of a stoner character. However, not everyone understood Matt Riddle’s character at first and that included John Cena. While speaking to Riju Dasgupta, Matt Riddle talked about his relationship with John Cena. Riddle revealed that he and John Cena didn’t see eye to eye at first but eventually Cena came to understand him.
“John Cena’s pretty cool, you know. Originally, when we first met we didn’t see eye to eye. He didn’t really understand what a bro was, but now he gets it. We’re bros.”
John Cena also got Matt Riddle and Randy Orton to hug it out after this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW went off the air. We will have to see if John Cena and Matt Riddle will team up in the future as well. They still had a pretty great moment on Raw where they “bro’ed” out a little bit on camera.
