John Cena is a WWE legend and a shoo-in WWE Hall of Famer as well. That being said, even someone as professional as Cena isn’t immune to making mistakes in the ring.

WWE fans are excited to see John Cena return to the ring at WrestleMania 39. He will take on Austin Theory with the WWE United States Title on the line. Only time will tell if Cena will start another title run at the showcase of the immortals.

While speaking to the Cheap Heat Productions podcast, former WWE Superstar Gene Snitsky, discussed John Cena a bit. The two were able to work with each other in WWE, but the big man still had a complaint about wrestling the 16x World Champion.

“It doesn’t matter who he wrestles or what the scenario is or what the storyline is, he not only tries to make himself look good, but he’ll go above and beyond to make you or whoever he’s wrestling look good.”


“I only have one complaint with John. He broke my rib one time. I often have people at the shop, ‘Hey, how was Cena?’ And I’ll be like, ‘Well, other than breaking my rib, he’s pretty awesome.'”

John Cena used to wear Under Armour sneakers on WWE television. This was part of an endorsement contract with the sports clothing company. It turns out that Cena used that deal to give Snitsky a gift, a pair of sneakers that he still has to this day.

John Cena might not have paid a penny for that gift, but those sneakers still meant a lot to Gene Snitsky. So, Snitsky can’t say anything bad about Cena at this point.

“He made up for it [the injury], though, because he hooked me up with a pair of Under Armour sneakers back when he had his Under Armour contract, so I can’t say nothing bad about the guy. I still have them too. I still wear them once in a while.”

John Cena is still going strong, and he has a ton of sponsorship deals in place as well. Nowadays, Cena might offer someone a lot bigger gift for injuring them in the ring, but Snitsky really seemed to appreciate those free sneakers.
