John Cena was drafted to Raw from SmackDown in 2005. Cena replaced Batista as the top star on the red brand after the Animal was sidelined with an injury. A year later, Cena entered into a rival with Triple H.
The Game took to Instagram and posted a video tribute to the Cenation leader ahead of his return to Raw. Triple H called Cena the hardest worker in the room and stated that he’s arguably the greatest superstar in the WWE.
“I’d like to take a second to congratulate John Cena on 20 unbelievable years in the WWE. You know it’s been an honor to watch John and his growth through that period of time; through determination, grit, hard work.
“Just constantly being the hardest worker made himself the success he was for those 20 years, arguably the greatest superstar in the history of the WWE. But not only that, through those 20 years, becoming the greatest ambassador and truly representing what it means to be a WWE superstar.
“John, I was honored to share the ring with you for all those years. I’m honored to call you a friend. Congratulations on the 20 years, and I look forward to what you bring to the world for the next 20.”
Randy Orton also posted video tribute for Cena ahead of his return to a sold-out Raw at the Sames Auto Arena in Laredo, Texas. Keep reading Ringside News for more from the world of pro wrestling!’
