On a recent episode of WWE’s The Bump on Peacock, current WWE Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels reflected on his nearly hour-long bout with John Cena from 16 years ago.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On the most difficult aspect of this particular bout: “The hardest thing is, like, ‘Geez man, we just did 13 days over here.’ This is the end of the tour and John and I had to go an hour. No, look, there is no better guy to do it with than John, honestly, and I’ll say this — it sounds strange, but because, you know, it’s not a full hour and you feel like in your mind, even though you’re not dealing with commercial breaks, it’s not, it was really easy.”
On what makes Cena such a good counterpart in this sort of event: “John is, is such a dream to work with, John and I got along very well. It was a fantastic night and I had a chemistry with John that was darn near effortless … It was absolutely a piece of cake because you know, it was just a lot of fun.”
