"There's never been a performer like him" - John Cena Praises Roman Reigns

The WWE Universe has had a love-hate relationship with many polarizing superstars over the years, including John Cena and Roman Reigns. The veteran champions have battled and teamed up numerous times, and they have not been shy about publicly praising each other.

The Tribal Chief’s historic championship reign came to an end at WrestleMania XL, where he was dethroned by Cody Rhodes in a main event match that also featured interference from Cena and other top names. This was fitting, as ‘The Face That Runs The Place’ had also worked his last big program against Reigns and The Bloodline, leading to a massive loss to Solo Sikoa at Crown Jewel 2023.

John Cena was interviewed for A&E’s recent Biography documentary on Roman Reigns. Paul Heyman shared a clip from the episode, reminding the WWE Universe that legendary names in the business also hold The Head of The Table in high regard. The Cenation leader declared the 14-year veteran to be The G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time). Check out the clip here.

“We only recognize something when we romanticize about it, when we look back on it. I hope there’s a few more folks out out there there that can realize that Roman Reigns is a very unique individual. There’s never been a performer like him. Roman Reigns, as The Tribal Chief is the greatest of all time,” John Cena said.

The 47-year-old Bostonian and the 39-year-old Floridian have teamed up and faced off in dozens of multi-man matches in WWE since 2013.

Their first-ever Cena vs. Reigns match occurred at No Mercy 2017, where Roman emerged victorious in just over 22 minutes. Roman secured wins at two non-televised live events later that year. Their second TV singles bout, which took place at SummerSlam 2021, also marked their last encounter, with Reigns retaining the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a 23-minute match.
