There were many rumors regarding John Cena’s issues with Alex Riley following the star’s departure back in 2016.
Riley himself even stated that the former World Champion had been the reason for his downfall in WWE, but Arn Anderson recently confirmed the issue on his ARN Podcast.
“I think Alex had a good look. I think his work was ok. He’s seemed to gel well when they put him with The Miz. But there’s a famous story that he was offered some help from John Cena and he seemed less than enthused or interested which would have immediately made it’s way back to the locker room and to the office.”
“I’m sure it was around that time that his water got cut off.”
Riley himself has hinted that there were some issues with Cena throughout his time in the company and when he tried to apologize to Cena it just seemed to cause more issues.
