Recently, during a recent episode of Cafe de René, a fan asked Dupree if Cena felt threatened by any superstars. In response to the following question, the former tag team champion smiled for a bit, then he answered, “Very much so. very much so. Yeah. The Americans with Americans with muscular physiques and tall and good-looking, yep. 100%,”
Later, he continues with the previous question: “The story goes that Cena was on the chopping block, right? But I didn’t see that at all. I think that might be bulls*it just to make his story like… ‘Coz I saw the interaction when I first got there with Cena and Vince. I don’t think he was going… But I know Hunter didn’t like him. Hunter was jealous of him. That’s what it was.”
According to the 39-year-old’s explanation, the former WWE champion felt most threatened by Triple H. The current chief content officer of WWE at the time was one of the biggest rivals of the 45-year-old.
The prototype debuted on the main roster when the game was already one of the top superstars in the company. During that time, they spent a lot of time as opponents inside the ring together. Which also includes a battle for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 22.
