“It was so fun punching his face in” – Former World Champion recalls his dangerous match with John Cena
WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler is proud of his performances against franchise player John Cena.
Dolph Ziggler, Natalya, and Titus O’Neil joined in-studio hosts of WWE’s the Bump this week. Ziggler spoke about his long-drawn rivalry with John Cena back in the day and how it felt to be feuding with the biggest star in the business at the time.
The Showoff stated that he had a chip on his shoulder going into the matchup with John. Ziggler mentioned that the crowd was hot for him during the match because they hated John Cena and the two men were able to create an amazing story inside the ring.
Here’s what Dolph Ziggler had to say about his rivalry with John Cena:
“It was amazing. Whoever doesn’t like beating up John Cena is a liar because it’s one of the greatest things you can do. When you have someone at the top of their game and you’re across from them and you’re someone who doesn’t always win, gets snubbed, you’re just always fighting… It was so fun punching his face in. I believe he hit a Hurricanrana in that match, which is pretty amazing,” Ziggler said.
