John Cena is one of the most popular WWE superstars in the industry. Over the years, he has crafted himself as one of the best talents on the roster. After a failed bodybuilding career, Cena chose professional wrestling as his alternative and pursued a career in it. Cena made his debut for WWE in 2002 and quickly climbed the ladder of success. Since then there has been no looking back for him, and he has achieved multiple records and championships. Throughout his career, he came face to face with multiple opponents, but none were like the one he faced in 2012.
In 2012, The Beast Incarnate made his comeback to WWE and attacked John Cena. It ignited the long rivalry between them. Cena and Lesnar became fierce rivals and were always at each other’s throats.
Although Cena won against Lesnar at Extreme Rules 2012, he left the match, a changed man. During a 9-year-old video from Paul Heyman’s YouTube channel, Heyman was found fuming in anger when a John Cena fan approached him to shake his hand.
What did Paul Heyman do when a John Cena fan approached him?
Back then, Paul Heyman served as Brock Lesnar’s special advocate. This prompted Heyman to fume with anger and irritation when a Cena fan approached him for a handshake.
The entire segment was gold and Heyman stayed completely in character, and generated heat from fans with his antics. Heyman said, “A John Cena shirt? With a John Cena shirt? John Cena shirt. I am itching.” Heyman’s reaction was hilarious, and showed how good of an actor Heyman is, and how he is an expert on generating heat from the fans.
