Vic Joseph Discusses John Cena’s Advice About WWE Commentary

WWE commentator Vic Joseph has recalled John Cena giving him advice and showing him the ropes when he was new to the company.

On WWE After The Bell, Vic Joseph pointed out that John Cena has given a lot to the wrestling industry, both on and off screen. Joseph then told a story about how Cena helped him when he had just started with WWE.

Stating that Cena took him aside to talk for an hour, Joseph said:

“When John Cena came back on Raw, the WWE Universe didn’t hate him. They were appreciating him because we all know time is of the essence here. There is one person who is undefeated and it’s father time. We all better enjoy who John Cena is and what he’s done for this industry,”

“This isn’t me gushing on it. I’ve never told this story publicly. The first day I did 205 Live, I was told there is two guys where if you see them, you say hi to them. JBL, because he will remember if you walk by and don’t say hi, and John Cena because he sees everything. I happen to see Cena and I went up and said, ‘Mr. Cena, I’m Vic Joseph, I’m new and I’m doing 205 Live tonight and I wanted to introduce myself.’ He goes, ‘You’re new? I’m going to watch the show.’ I’m thinking he’s not going to watch the show. We do the show and I’m leaving, he’s still in the locker room area or wherever and I walk by and I said, ‘John, nice to meet you.’

“He says, ‘Vic, come here.’ He walked me over and sat and talked with me about what I did for that hour. ‘Know the stories, know the transitions, you had this, don’t say this, lay out here.’ He ran through it all. A man who is a bonafide movie star and a multiple time world champion, easily on the Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling and WWE, (he) took the time to not leave the arena and (instead) listen to what I had to say on 205 Live. I’ll never forget that. That’s a story about who the man John Cena is, not what you see on TV.”

In another interview, Rey Mysterio noted that Cena has been coaching Dominik at house shows. According to Mysterio, Cena’s presence backstage in recent weeks has had a positive effect on the WWE locker room.
