Bray Wyatt and John Cena have a long and storied history against each other. Wyatt even won the WWE Championship from John Cena at Elimination Chamber 2017 (in a chamber match). Wyatt took to Twitter recently to say he forgives Cena for the “painful lessons” that Cena taught him.
Moments before posting the message to John Cena, however, Wyatt tweeted out the following [ominous] message:
“Bad people don’t start off bad, it’s the choices they make. They make these choices because they want to be remembered, envied, worshipped. Intentions always start off just, but then the journey happens…. and the CHOICES you make cement your legacy To be continued…”
He then addressed the following tweet to John Cena:
“I wanted to be brave and courageous , but I lost my way. I gave into desires and lost my meaning. Lessons painfully learned. I can be a hero. I will be a hero. Because you need me to be. I forgive you @JohnCena. Thank you for the painful lessons #DanceWithMeYouFool”
