Former WWE superstar Miroslav Barnyashev (Rusev) spoke about working with John Cena on his Youtube channel, where the Bulgarian Brute praised the Cenation leader for his work ethic and ring psychology, as well as admitting that he learned a lot from him. Highlights are below.
Cena knowing the business better than anyone:
Cena’s mentality, Cena’s psychology is so freaking good because he knows what the deal is and he just knows and he gets it… Cena knows so much, Cena knows more than anyone in the current business and in the past few years. He just knows. I was just so blessed to be with him for so many years. We worked so many matches in so many live events and everything. That’s where I think I excelled the most.
Learning a lot from him and other wrestling legends like Big Show:
I was very fortunate [in those first years]to work with so many legends like Mark Henry, Big Show, with [Jack] Swagger, all these guys, fantastic Hall of Famers, Zack [Ryder too]. I learned so much from everyone. I knew what I was doing but it was so great learning from them. You learn something from every single person you work with. With Show, it’s some maneuvers and now you know how to work with a big guy. Once you come to Cena, Cena is just, ‘See you out there’ and you go out there and you have a match with Cena in front of 10-15,000 people. You learn and you just listen to the people.
