Sunday on Twitter, Gabe Tuft, who appeared as Tyler Reks in WWE, dished some dirt on his former employer including a story regarding his one-time finishing maneuver, the Burning Hammer, and how John Cena took issue with him over it.
“Anyone want to know what top guy forced me to stop using the burning hammer – even after it appeared on SD/RAW and PPV’s?,” Tuft wrote. “1st house show loop, Cena asks pulls me aside, degrades me like I’m 10 years & tells me if I use it again I’d me fired. He yelled at me & said, ‘Who gave u permission to use that’? Apparently he hadn’t been watching the product 4 the last 8 months… Or perhaps how he stole our idea to get fired, use social media to get over, & run in from the crowd (Given to Miz & Truth)… I still have the promo DVD our idea was burned onto when Cena supposedly helped us with the idea – then lied & said it wasn’t stolen later.”
When asked by a Twitter user on why he feels Cena did not want him using Burning Hammer, the former WWE Superstar said “it looks better than the [Attitude Adjustment]” and that Cena is “insecure.”
Former WWE wrestler Kenn Doane (a/k/a Kenny Dykstra), who has called the Cenation leader’s personal character into question numerous times in recent months over the micro-blogging outlet, concurred with Tuft’s remarks Monday.
“Uh oh! @GabeTuft spoke truth, now cenation gonna cry lol,” wrote Doane.
He continued, “@GabeTuft was a threat [to Cena], he looks impressive and has talent.”
