WWE superstar John Cena is all set to return to the WWE and that news has the wrestling world buzzing. WWE declared that the month of June would be “Cena Month”, marking 20 years since The Champ made his debut. From winning all the major titles to having matches at WrestleMania with the likes of The Rock and The Undertaker, Cena has done it all. An all too familiar foe sang Cena’s praises and it was none other than Kurt Angle.

In an interview with TV Insider, Kurt recalled his first match with Cena and said that he was destined for stardom from the beginning. Angle revealed the conversation he had with Cena following the match. He said, “All I said was, ‘You stepped up tonight. It was a great match.’ He said ‘Thank you, Mr Angle, for working with me. I really do appreciate it.’ He was very respectful. I knew this kid was very special from the first time I got in the ring and after I got done wrestling him, I knew he would be a huge star down the road.”

Bully Ray thinks John Cena is the greatest of all time

Elsewhere, WWE Hall of Famer and legend Bubba Ray Dudley, also known as Bully Ray has stated that John Cena could be the greatest superstar of all time. John Cena made his WWE debut in 2002 and since then has gone on to establish himself as one of the top stars in the company. He has held numerous titles and has had many great matches, some of which can easily be classed as five-star matches. He has also held the WWE World Championship 16 times, a record that he shares with Ric Flair.

Bully Ray was on the Buster Open Podcast when he gave his reasons as to why he thinks Cena is the greatest of all time. He said, “There’s definitely an argument for Cena. Everything that encompasses being a WWE Superstar, not just in-ring work. If we go outside of the ring, Cena has granted more wishes to children on this earth through the Make a Wish Foundation than anybody else. That says a lot.” That in itself is a great thing considering the busy schedule that Cena was on during his time as a full-time wrestler on the main roster. John is now a full-time Hollywood actor and a part-time wrestler.
