Do you remember Wrestlemania 36 and the Firefly Funhouse Match between John Cena and Bray Wyatt aka The Fiend? John Cena hasn’t been on WWE television since a mandible claw by The Fiend sealed the deal for him.
In a recent interview, Cena has finally addressed the unforgettable match and what it all meant to the 43-year-old wrestler.
John Cena told Sports Illustrated, “I’ve had many experiences and many stories in WWE over my tenure there, and a lot of it has been embracing conflict and embracing the tale of good versus evil. This isn’t the first time I’ve done something like this. For the viewing audience, it was the first time they’d seen a cinematic depiction of this, but this isn’t the first time that we’ve seen a conflicted John Cena character. As with all the opportunities I get in WWE, I never try to be complacent and I always like to push the envelope. This was an instance where we could do just that, and I think we put forth a product that certainly got people’s attention and got people talking.”
John Cena also recreated his WWE debut, a classic late-90s episode of WCW Monday Nitro (where he played Hollywood Hogan) and his WrestleMania XXX match with Wyatt in some of the sequences in the match. He said, “It left a lot of questions.”
John Cena added, “It wasn’t just single-serving, it is something you can go back and watch and enjoy. Those are some of the best efforts.”
