On the most recent edition of ‘Something To Wrestle With’, host Bruce Prichard revealed the initial reason for Vince McMahon not wanting John Cena in the WWE

“Cena comes back, signs his contract, his tests come back, he’s clean as a whistle and Vince walks up to me and says ‘get that walking, talking steroid billboard out of our backstage.’ I’m like ‘who?’, ‘That guy!’ and he’s pointing out Cena. I’m like: ‘Vince, we just signed him. Vince made the initial assumption that I think everybody made when they saw John, especially back in those days. (Cena) was doing commercials for Gold’s Gym and he was ripped to shreds, but that was Vince’s first impression of John Cena: a walking, talking steroid billboard.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
