Future WWE Hall of Famer and WWE Champion on several occasions, John Cena took to social media via Instagram to highlight the drawings of WWE’s main fellow R-Truth, dressed as the Latest character from ‘his childhood hero’: The Peacemaker, who attempts to bring the character to WWE. Cena will play The Peacemaker in an upcoming DC television show and the highly anticipated “Suicide Squad 2.” John Cena recently said that returning to WrestleMania 37 would be very selfish.
Although, a member of the WWE Universe made the decision to point out a very critical fact: that Cena did not give credit to the artist who originally created the representations of R-Truth. However, in a follow-up post, Cena took things to a whole new level by dedicating an entire Instagram post to the artist. As the WWE Universe member posted on Twitter: “John Cena was bullied on IG to give credit to the artist who stole from him, so in the style of John Cena, he dedicated a full post with the artist’s name.”
In other John Cena news, during a recent edition of ‘The ARN Podcast,’ former WWE agent and wrestling legend Arn Anderson spoke about John Cena originally strangling talent when he began rolling out the STF across his set of movements. Anderson told Conrad Thompson the following.
“I gave him the play because I saw it in Japan,” Anderson said. “I thought it was a tremendous ending. You catch the guy’s leg, his knee bends uncomfortably, and then you reach out and hook it around the jaw. Apparently he set it up when he started wearing it and some guys said ‘Hey, you’re drowning me, you need to relax. This “lie” by John Cena about WrestleMania 37 was revealed not long ago.

Roman Reigns’ ‘creative control’ revealed in WWE
Roman Reigns could be the new Hulk Hogan! On the latest episode of the “Nitty Gritty Dirt Show” on RussosBrand.com, host Billi Bhatti and former WWE writer Vince Russo discussed how much creative control and saying ‘The Tribal Chief’ and current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has had during his last run with the company. Brock Lesnar is rumored to be added to a WrestleMania world title match. Wrestling-Edge transcribed Bhatti’s comments below.
Bhatti: Here’s the thing, the only reason it happened was because Roman is on his own terms. As if the part of his comeback was to have Paul Heyman, a part of his return to work with whoever he wanted to work with, that’s why you saw the Uso situation and why we were heading to Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns and why we also saw to Kevin Owens raised to why we’re seeing Cesaro’s push. Roman Reigns works with whoever Roman Reigns wants to work with.
In other Roman Reigns news, “Tribal Chief” General Counsel Paul Heyman recently delivered this message about the hit WWE show “Talking Smack” ahead of the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view last Sunday. Seth Rollins recently responded to Roman Reigns’ heel twist.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it is the week of the fight; it’s weekend of fight. You have the rare opportunity to see a legend in action, a once-in-a-lifetime champion, the WWE standard-bearer, Roman Reigns, ”Heyman began. “The Tribal Chief himself will defend the Universal Championship tomorrow at Elimination Chamber against the winner of that same chamber. The winner of that same chamber, a man who can display such violence, a politically incorrect word, that he not only survives but thrives within the chamber, strikes whoever survives and emerges as the victor. What happens then?
So that man steps into the ring for the Universal Championship less than two months away from WrestleMania against Roman Reigns. The whole complexion of WWE may change this weekend… There is no WWE without Roman Reigns. There is no SmackDown without Roman Reigns. There is no RAW without Roman Reigns. There is no NXT without Roman Reigns. We all exist thanks to Roman Reigns. He is the sun around which we all orbit. We have the juice [and] we got the hit. We have the power and influence around here. ” This WWE icon also talked about wanting Roman Reigns as an opponent when he retired.

In other Ric Flair news, the WWE Hall of Famer recently sat down with Nick Hausman, editor of Wrestling Inc, to discuss the heartwarming gift Triple H gave him after the passing of Flair’s son, Reid. Reid Flair tragically passed away on March 29, 2013 due to a drug overdose. He told Hausman the following quote.
“I’ve moved on. Trust me, I’ve had words with Hunter and I’ve had words with Stephanie,” Ric said. “I have argued with them and we have also had difficult moments. He drank a lot and Steph and I had a bad argument. I said something terrible, but I’ve been forgiven and Hunter has forgiven me, and Vince has never left my side since the day I met him. And they couldn’t have done more for my son.
Flair continued, “I can remember that after I buried Reid, I put one of my Hall of Fame rings on Reid. Once on NXT, Hunter said, “I need to talk to you,” and maybe I thought I had done something wrong. And he called me into his office, and he had a duplicate ring with Reid’s name engraved on it. That’s someone who cares. I spent half the time with Hunter than those guys (the Horsemen). ” Ric Flair also revealed last week if he doesn’t like Matt Riddle.

Undertaker called Big WWE when he retired
The text message of Undertaker’s phone call to Ric Flair after the “Final Farewell” retirement ceremony at Survivor Series was revealed on the Wrestling Inc. podcast today. New Day ‘surprising’ Undertaker in WWE locker room just revealed.
Taker said, “Happy Thanksgiving, champ! Thank you for running this business and setting the bar for greatness! The bar that we all strive to reach and that very few have approached! So, now and forever, you are “The Champion” !! I am very proud to call you my friend. “
Flair recalled wrestling with Undertaker at WrestleMania 18 in 2002, “That’s when Mark carried me off, but we had an amazing fight. In 2002, I was 54 years old, but we had an incredible match, which was great. After The Last Ride, talk about [how] he also had some insecurities. His were related to health problems, back problems and the like, which made him feel insecure. Mine was all mental, but we shared it in common.
Self-confidence, it doesn’t matter if your body is holding on or your mind and being able to do it and perform at the level that everyone thinks it can, no matter how many times Hunter (Triple H) tells me, ‘Damn! You are Ric Flair! Get out there and relax. Be yourself ”. It goes in one ear and out the other.
You shake your head and say “yes,” and then you walk through the curtain and it’s just not there. And I think that’s because they’re beating me up for so long. I still really enjoyed that time and such good guys, Randy [Orton], Dave [Batista and] Hunter. How cool is that? Correct?!”
Flair also commented that Eric Bischoff reached out to him after the death of his son Reid: “When my son died… I don’t think we were best friends, but when something like this happens, or when I get sick like I did or something that really upsets his life, those are the people who appear, “said Ric. “And I can remember driving around town about three days after his death. Eric called on the phone because he was devastated. I was absolutely devastated.
I can remember the people who called and the people who didn’t. If they couldn’t come, they would call or text me. Those are the people who count, or in the same way, when I was sick, you really find out who your friends are. It took me six months to get them all back, but I had over 170 text messages on my phone, and Wendy counted every one of them. You wake up and you don’t know where you are.
That’s what you know who your friends are because there are people I was very close with who didn’t show up to his (Reid’s) funeral and didn’t text me. As simple as that, but there are people I spent a lot of time with and in whom I put a lot of faith, and we are very close. I didn’t hear a word from them, and those are the things that are more painful than anything I’ve ever experienced in wrestling. It’s just a very personal feeling. “You can see more in Wrestling inc.
