Wrestling legend reveals John Cena asked permission to use his finisher during Cena's early career

On this week's "Busted Open" Tommy Dreamer said John Cena asked him if it was okay to use the Dreamer’s finisher when he first started getting pushed in WWE.

“I was blessed to work with John. It kind of was my deal when I worked with WWE. I worked with everyone when they first started on the road. John was always a professional," Dreamer said.

"I’ll tell you what stood out because this business is all about respect. It really is. Early on when they (WWE) first wanted to push John, he came to me and said, ‘They suggested in the meeting to use your finish as my finish. I wanted to come to you. If you don’t want me to do it, I won’t do it.’ I was like, ‘I appreciate you so much for coming to me. I’m not winning with it and obviously they want you to do it, so run with it.’ Just to come to another person and say that, was super cool because he cared when he didn’t have to care.”
