John Cena’s comments on Max Caster
John Cena is one of WWE’s biggest superstars in history. He carried WWE for more than a decade and sold out arenas worldwide before becoming a Hollywood megastar. He initially started his WWE career as a rapper and would call himself The Doctor of Thuganomics. John Cena is a former rapper in his own right. He incorporated his rapping skills into his WWE character and was successful with it. Cena also sang his WWE entrance theme songs.
The Leader of the Cenation has praised young AEW star Max Caster, who performs as a part of a tag team called The Acclaimed. Cena views Caster as a very skilled and gifted performer who, he believes, can beat him in a rap battle should they ever go for it. The wrestler-turned-actor added that he knew the AEW star personally. Cena commented that Hip-Hop is constantly evolving and that Caster is portraying a better version of what he tried to do in WWE. He also said that Max caster doesn’t need any advice because of his great work in AEW and sees great potential in the young star.
Max Caster responds to Cena’s comments
Platinum Max Caster has responded to the comments made by John Cena. He said that John Cena had a big influence on his career. Caster had modeled his gimmick to the one Cena portrayed earlier in his WWE career. He also said that the WWE legend is one of his favorite wrestlers and the reason Caster started watching wrestling again. Here’s what he had to say about John Cena.
“That’s a great question”, Caster said when asked if he could beat Cena in a rap battle. “John has been very, very nice to me and when he didn’t need to. He reached out and he made that public so I’m allowed to say it now so he reached out and then he said things publicly about me in Forbes and that means a lot to me. So, it’s never been about beating him in a rap battle. It’s about trying to get past the point of people saying I’m a Thuganomics rip-off.”
