Tommy Dreamer is best known for his time with ECW in the 1990s and early 2000s. He made his way to WWE after ECW closed its door. During that period, he got to work with the likes of John Cena. Dreamer revealed some interesting piece of information from Cena’s early days in WWE.
On this week’s Busted Open Radio, Dreamer spoke about his interactions with John Cena. He called it a blessed opportunity to have been able to work with the WWE Superstar.
I was blessed to work with John. It kind of was my deal when I worked with WWE. I worked with everyone when they first started on the road. John was always a professional.
Dreamer revealed that Cena asked him whether it was acceptable to perform Dream’s finisher. This was back when Cena was just starting to get pushed in WWE.
I’ll tell you what stood out because this business is all about respect. It really is. Early on when they (WWE) first wanted to push John, he came to me and said, ‘They suggested in the meeting to use your finish as my finish. I wanted to come to you. If you don’t want me to do it, I won’t do it.’ I was like, ‘I appreciate you so much for coming to me. I’m not winning with it and obviously they want you to do it, so run with it.’ Just to come to another person and say that, was super cool because he cared when he didn’t have to care.
John Cena has always received compliments from almost everyone he has worked with. Dreamer seems to be no exception to that. Cena’s legacy continues to live on, and it’s because he is one of the best.
