John Cena destroys Dean Ambrose on Talking Smack

SmackDown Live has done a good job of holding its own compared to the three-hour Monday Night Raw since the brand split last month.

Both shows do draw high praise some weeks, and criticism in other weeks, but one consistent compliment that comes SmackDown’s way is the importance ‘Talking Smack’ gets once the main show goes off the air.


With Renee Young hosting, it doesn’t seem like a scripted show, or that all of the stars appearing on it are in character 100% of the time, as we saw with The Miz not too long ago when he went ballistic at Daniel Bryan.

This week, it's John Cena in the spotlight as he responded to Dean Ambrose’s claims that he isn’t the main man in the company anymore.

Obviously, Cena didn’t take that sort of criticism laying down as he went in on The Lunatic Fringe, hitting out at his work-ethic and how he doesn’t even care about Ambrose.


Cena focused on a comment Ambrose made last week, regarding how he doesn’t get changed in the same locker room like everybody else, and didn’t take kindly to being called a lazy part-timer either.

He said: “Like I said, you are the sum of the five people you surround yourself with and I surround myself with people that just go. The Vince McMahon’s of the world, people who are the first to show up and the last to leave.

“No, I don’t stand and dress where Dean Ambrose dresses, but this is where someone has twisted reality.

“Dean Ambrose said ‘John Cena and Dean Ambrose don’t like each other.’ No. Dean Ambrose doesn’t like John Cena. John Cena doesn’t care about Dean Ambrose. And if Dean Ambrose wants me to care about him at No Mercy, he’ll either need to step up or step aside.”

The lines were blurred a little between what was in character and what wasn’t, it’s not clear whether Cena genuinely feels that way about Ambrose.

But then we also had Cena acknowledge his relationship with Nikki Bella, calling her by her real name and talking about travelling to promote various projects.

Cena also highlighted how when The Shield first debuted, Ambrose looked special but right now there are two bona fide WWE superstars from the group, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns while Ambrose is still trying to figure himself out.

He also mentioned while Ambrose had one good match tonight, somebody like Cesaro on Raw has had tonnes of great matches, and he’s still trying to figure it out.

He continued: “That’s not a knock on Dean Ambrose because I know that he’s going to hopefully put in the work to get better. But you have to be accountable for your words.”

Ouch. Over to you, Dean.
