When asked about the most difficult aspect of the match, Michaels stated,
“The hardest thing is, like, ‘Geez man, we just did 13 days over here.’ This is the end of the tour and John and I had to go an hour. No, look, there is no better guy to do it with than John, honestly, and I’ll say this — it sounds strange, but because, you know, it’s not a full hour and you feel like in your mind, even though you’re not dealing with commercial breaks, it’s not, it was really easy.”
Despite the difficulties, Michaels noted that Cena was the perfect partner for the match, citing their effortless chemistry and easygoing nature. When asked about what makes Cena such a good opponent in this sort of situation, Michaels responded,
“John is, is such a dream to work with, John and I got along very well. It was a fantastic night and I had a chemistry with John that was darn near effortless … It was absolutely a piece of cake because you know, it was just a lot of fun.”
This match is widely considered one of the best matches in Monday Night Raw history, and the two wrestlers’ chemistry was praised by critics and fans alike. Michaels’ comments on Cena’s professionalism and proficiency in the ring further solidify Cena’s reputation as one of the all-time greats.
