John Cena’s Biggest Obstacle in His WWE Career
John Cena is easily one of the most successful wrestlers of his time and had trampled over many others to achieve victory. He was declared champion countless times on multiple occasions and gained enormous success with his huge build combined with speed and enormous power. But as all champions have to overcome many difficulties and crossroads, Cena also had one such obstacle in his life. In an interview when he was asked who his biggest match was, John Cena replied,
“Do you know a WWE superstar by the name of Brock Lesnar? Ok if you know Brock Lesnar, he is big, he is bad, and he is mean and he was easily my toughest match. Now I have had some moments where I have done ok against him, and I have moments where I have not done ok against him.
And the greatest thing about having a match with Brock Lesnar is you’re always nervous, always afraid cause he is stronger than everybody. But you are still brave enough to go in there, win or lose him, you try your best.”
