John Cena reacts to Max Caster referring to Vince McMahon
Caster has been quite impressive with his rapping ability and solid in-ring skills. John Cena also came from a similar rapping gimmick, and he reacted to Caster mentioning Vince McMahon’s retirement on AEW Dynamite this week. The Acclaimed squared off against The Gunn Club in a tag team dumpster match. Prior to the match, Max Caster did his usual pre-match rap and mentioned Vince McMahon retiring.
“No filter, I ain’t Instagram,
We’ll make the Ass Boys retire like Vince McMahon.”
It did not take long for John Cena to react to the bar, as he took to Instagram and uploaded a photo of Max Caster. Earlier this year, John Cena stated that he does not think he could beat Max Caster in a rap battle. In an interview with Forbes’ Alfred Konuwa, Cena had answered the wild question that who would win in a rap battle between the Dr. of Thuganomics and Platinum Max. When asked if he could beat Caster in a rap battle, Cena simply said, “No.”
“He’s extremely gifted. I remember hearing him for the first time, and asking a good friend of mine to please pass his information on to me. I immediately checked out his raps, out of the blue, and I saw what he was doing was spectacular.
“I wish him all the best of luck, but I can’t give him any advice because he’s punching far above my weight class. He is very gifted. He’s gifted enough to rhyme to the beat live, where I kind of did my stuff a cappella to let the punchlines sink in.
“Hip-hop constantly evolves, and it constantly moves forward, and he is the better version of what I did. He’s really, really spectacular. As long as he keeps everything in realistic perspective, he shows great potential.”
