John Cena Reveals Greatest Shame of His Career

John Cena spoke to Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones of ESPN’s Highly Questionable Show about the greatest shame of his career.

“Losing to the Rock at WrestleMania 28 in Miami. I spent a year telling everybody how important that match was to me, and how proud I am of all of this. The Rock was gracious enough to come back to the WWE and perform for one time and one time only, for WrestleMania 28 in his home town.”

Cena was asked why he was upset with the outcome of the match even though it was pre-determined.

“There is a giant underlying story that you may or may not know about. I really would have liked to be on top that night. It’s the good with the bad. The unique thing about the WWE is that it’s sport and that it’s entertainment, and it’s the best of both. Everybody wants to be the Super Bowl champion but there can only be one. And it was a bit of a disappointment that on that night I couldn’t be.”

“That’s one of those stories that years from they’re gonna put Dwayne Johnson on one seat at a table, and me at another seat at a table, and I’ll be smoking a cigar and we’ll both be drinking something out of a coffee cup. We’ll tell that story then … It’s an interesting story, and obviously it’s one that you want to hear about. So hopefully some day at the right time you will.”

    Eh. Cena won when it was most important, WM29 for the WWE Title so imo it kinda overrides the loss at WM28

    • Ya Boy J Black

      But it didn’t mean as much, in the Wrestlemania 28 match no one knews who exactly was going to win. Plus at 18, Hogan kinda of passed that torch to The Rock, but at 28 Rock didn’t give Cena the torch. If you really want to put it out there, The Rock is consiidered the greatest WWE superstar ever. Of course there is Austin, but he spent way too long in other promotions, while Hogan, Rock, and Cena are cut from the same cloth. I think thematch was really suppose to be Once in a Lifetime, but problem is, Rock didn’t want to lose

      • Rotnerd

        Cena should have lost. Rock wasn’t going looking like Hogan did He was in great age, little older than Cena and in as good of shape or better. (Just coming of fast five. You wouldn’t believe the Rock could lose. Fans didnt want it . You can tell by the reaction. When Cena won he was booed and the next night on Raw. Cena is WWE’s PR wizard but Rock is a wrestler who with Austin changed Wrestling as we knew it.

    • D.M.T

      Cena didn’t win when it mattered the most because everyone knew that Cena was gonna win the rematch so it was boring and predictable. Their match at WrestleMania 28 was unpredictable and it meant more because it was the first time that they would wrestle each other and it was The Rock’s first single match in 8 years. Their WM 29 match was just a rematch with the WWE Title on the line to make things a little bit more interesting but it wasn’t about the WWE Title. The Rock will be forever known as the one who beat Cena first in their rivalry.

    • Rotnerd

      nope. It was once in a lifetime. They had to do it second a life time because, how cena came off on here. He was bitter and wouldn’t let his ego go. So they had to bring the Rock back so Cena would stop his bitching.

      • Poppy’s Hammer

        No, Rock came back because he wanted to win the WWEC title, it also allowed them to have another Rock vs Cena rematch so Cena can claim the title from Rock, but allow rock to pass on the torch. No one wanted to see CM Punks streak beaten by John Cena as that feud was over and there wasn’t really anyone else to take on Undertaker and WM. The booking was screwed when The Rock and Cena was mentioned.

      • The_Fearless_Diva

        Cena was not b******* he was telling the truth.

  • Joseph Douglas

    What a whiner. He wins 95% of his matches and he really complains about that one?

    • The_Fearless_Diva

      How is John Cena a whiner? all he was saying that he wanted to win his match with The Rock at WM 28.

      • The Devourer of Dimensions

        Because it’s what John Cena wants and doesn’t stop to think maybe he has no god damn entitlement to it.

    • JH

      I’m pretty sure that was answering that question in character, I’m pretty sure he considers that match one of the best moments of his career.

  • Dirty J. Sanchez The 3rd

    I always thought the greatest shame in his career was him rapping.

    • The Devourer of Dimensions

      That’s what got him over in the first place.
