When Bulgarian-American wrestler Miroslav Barnyashev aka Rusev debuted on the WWE main roster he found himself at odds with John Cena. What started with him being on the receiving end of a pretty decent push, eventually ended up as a feud. But now, he only has nice words for the 16-time world champion.
The former wrestler, Rusev, recently opened up about his experience working with John Cena and he had nothing but good things to say about him.
While on the Ryback Show, Rusev said, “I was blessed. To this day, I pray and I’m so thankful that I got to work with John Cena who taught me every single thing. Talking about the crowd, the timing, and it’s just an unbelievable experience, man.”
Rusev also noted that he and Cena have a good personal relationship. They still text to this day. He said, “[We had a] great relationship. I never had a bad experience with John. John taught me about cars because I love cars, and he taught me about cars. And I got a Mazarati because he recommended that it was a fantastic car. I’ve been in his house for dinner. I think it was a christening for me – we started working a program and he invited me into his house to kind of see who I am, and we hung out. It was fun, man.”
For those who do not know, Rusev faced John Cena at WrestleMania 31. Even though he didn’t pick up the victory in that match it was still a big night for his career.
John Cena doesn’t wrestle much anymore. Miro too has retired from the game.
