Alberto El Patron, who is best known as Alberto Del Rio from his time in WWE, recently gave some high praise to John Cena.
El Patron did so during a recent interview with Super Luchas where he spoke about a wide range of topics. Both stars have had some good matches against each other under the WWE banner throughout the years.
For the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, he considers Cena one the greatest wrestlers of all time due to his ability to listen to the way the fans are reacting to a match or promo and adjusting on the fly.
“I became a better wrestler thanks to my matches with Edge, with Christian, with Rey Mysterio, with John Cena, who even though you the fans want to criticize him: John Cena is one of the best wrestlers of the universe. Wrestlers – yes, I said it well and I repeat it: wrestlers.”
El Patron continued, “But John Cena is the master of that, of being able to go out into the ring and wrestle with quality for 45 minutes against someone you have never seen him in your life, I learned that from many wrestlers, but especially from all the matches I had with John Cena and all that time I spent outside the arenas listening to him and learning from him. I swear, there is no one better listening to the fans and knowing what they wants and how to make them cheer other than John Cena”.
