John Cena was the face of WWE from 2006 to 2016 and carried the company on his back throughout the Ruthless Aggression as well as the PG era of WWE. During that time, he feuded with numerous top stars in WWE, especially The Rock. Now it appears Cena didn’t tell anyone about a huge shot he took at The Rock on live television.

Back in 2008 to 2009, John Cena called out The Rock for leaving WWE and going to Hollywood, while he still was actively competing in WWE. After Cena himself ventured into Hollywood, he realized just how wrong he was.

Even then, John Cena previously used that fact during his feud with The Rock. In 2012, the heated rivalry between John Cena and The Rock stemmed from actual animosity between the two professional wrestlers.

During a recent episode of the Masked Man Show, former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz talked about a segment on Monday Night RAW when Cena took a shot at The Rock by revealing a custom-made ‘I Bring It via Satellite’ t-shirt. Gewirtz revealed Cena didn’t inform anyone about the shirt beforehand.

“During the whole Rock-Cena deal where Cena came out and did not tell me or really anyone that he had made up a ‘I Bring It via Satellite’ t-shirt that he unveiled live on the air and then was nice enough to roll it into a ball and just fling it in my face as hard as he could when he got back through the curtain while I’m sitting there on headset. But that was kind of like the, hey, we’re in a war/shoot/whatever. You gotta do what you gotta do to stay alive.”

John Cena also recently revealed whether he will have third match with The Rock. John Cena also stated that he would not be who he is without The Rock. Regardless, Cena will always be glad for his feud with The Rock and that’s all that matters.
