The WWE locker room is full of talented Superstars who go out of their way to entertain fans. It also has veteran Superstars who have been working in the pro wrestling world for a long time and remain a highlight of the main roster shows. It seems R-Truth had to make up a story about an altercation with John Cena in the past.
R-Truth is one such Superstar, who has seen a career resurgence over the past few years. He is currently on his second run with the company, having first joined WWE twenty years ago.
While speaking with Peter Rosenberg on Hot 97’s, R-Truth recalled the time he had to make up a story about an altercation with John Cena, around the time he was working in TNA.
So, Konnan was the first guy to take me to Mexico, to wrestle and when this all happened, Cena was connecting on a flight to Charlotte and I was coming home. I was at TNA, he was at WWE, we crossed paths, we spoke and kept it moving. People got pictures of it and going ‘oh R-Truth’s in the airport with John Cena,’ blah blah and when I got to work, everybody was asking me about it and Konnan was sitting beside me and was the second person who asked and asked what happened with me and Cena and I was like ‘bro, he passed me and I passed him and it was just like hey and bye.’
And people were walking away disappointed and Konnan said that this story was disappointing and we needed to add some more to it,” he added. “We needed to add extra sauce to it, look how people just walked away so disappointed and somebody else came up to me and went ‘hey, Truth what happened with you and Cena?’ and I said it was nothing but then Konnan said ‘yeah, but tell them about when you pushed him and he didn’t do nothing,’ and I said ‘bruh, I didn’t push him’ and Konnan said ‘oh, he doesn’t wanna tell you,’ and the guys was like ‘oh you pushed him?!’ and Konnan was like ‘exactly’ and then he said ‘see? He walked away happy.”
After his first WWE release, R-Truth had a short stint in TNA before signing with WWE again back in 2008. Since then he has had multiple title reigns, especially with the WWE 24/7 Championship as he has held the title over 50 times.
