John Cena came out with over a dozen Make-A-Wish kids for his WWE United States Championship match at WrestleMania 39.
While Cena lost his title match against Austin Theory, he won the hearts of many through his special WrestleMania entrance.
Speaking on the TODAY Show about the special entrance, Cena said,
“The hope of fulfilling gratitude. Any good, warm thing that makes you feel great. This year, at WrestleMania, we got to give 15 or 20 Make-A-Wish kids a WrestleMania entrance in front of 80,000 people. Normally, the entrance is something you do by yourself, but WWE had the idea to give the Make-A-Wish kids the moment and the perspective that very few get to see. I was all on board, and it was great.”
In 2003, Brian Kendrick had a feud with John Cena that featured a rap battle, and he recently looked back at the rivalry during an appearance on the “Hitting The Turnbuckle” podcast.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his feud with Cena: “I was young, and he was young too… I think John is only a year or two older than I am. And people from that generation have a certain sense of humor, and I just knew he was the funniest guy there… I didn’t think about who’s the future [star]… But I knew he was super talented in everything he did.”
On his rap battle with Cena: “[Brian] Hebner was beatboxing before a house show… and everybody was blown away, I know I certainly was. I don’t know who pitched it… but it was a really fun skit.”
