John Cena’s epic feud with John Bradshaw Layfield back in the mid-2000s is likely to be still fresh in the minds of WWE fans. It was that time in the Ruthless Aggression Era when John Cena started to establish himself as a serious main eventer.
In the year 2005, Cena captured his first WWE Championship from John Bradshaw Layfield at WrestleMania 21. The two again clashed a few days later at Judgment Day in a brutal “I Quit” match which Cena won. Appearing on the June 6, 2005, episode of Off the Record the Cenation leader discussed the brutal Judgment Day encounter with JBL.
“If you’ve seen us go at it before, we’ve gone at it a bunch, he beat the hell out of me,” Cena said. “And it’s one of those things where he’s a traditionalist and I’m not. I take things the other way. It p****d off a lot of people, and JBL’s one of the people who protects wrestling and he just wants to make sure I’m not in it for a quick fix.”
Cena is currently reported to have a match at WrestleMania 39 against celebrity YouTuber and WWE superstar Logan Paul. However, there has been no confirmation by WWE about the same.
