Before making a name for himself in the film industry, John Cena was popular as a full-time professional wrestler and for winning several championships. And as his career transitioned from wrestling to acting, his rivalry also followed him into the limelight of Hollywood, where one of his popular rivals had already established himself. Cena and The Rock’s infamous feud has not only been a hot topic for WWE fans but also for those who joined the fandom after their big-screen appearances.
However, he might feel the same not for every other wrestler. During his recent appearance on Notsam Wrestling, he recalled the time Brock Lesnar beat him in WWE SummerSlam, as he shared the story behind the match.
John Cena Talks About WWE SummerSlam 2014
John Cena and Brock Lesnar have faced each other several times in the WWE ring and have put on a great match for the audience. However, the two became the highlight of the WWE SummerSlam 2014 after Lesnar took control of the match as he repeatedly suplexed the former world champion.
The wrestler-turned-actor was asked about his match during his appearance on Notsam Wrestling. While talking about the UFC champion, Cena said, “Brock is one of the giving performers when it’s his time, and he will make anyone look great.”
He also shared how Lesnar told him about his meeting with Steve Austin, where they came up with the idea that he would repeatedly suplex the Fast X actor to beat Undertaker’s streak. Cena claimed that he told him that they would ruin this opportunity if they had a “50-50” match.
As the actor shared the story behind Lesnar squashing him, fans started pointing out how Cena has been “one of the best wrestling minds,” not only in WWE but also in all of wrestling.

This was always my understanding of why they did this. Glad to hear it confirmed by someone involved. Brock HAD to go on a tear after beating Undertaker.
