John Cena Sat Down With WWE NXT Tag Team To Dissect Their Characters’ Potential

John Cena has inspired many pro wrestlers, and his advice is treasured. Some in NXT had the pleasure to sit directly under his learning tree, and that is an experience that Stacks won’t soon forget.

The Family has been a fixture on NXT programming since their debut, led by Tony D’Angelo, with various members joining and departing during their time in the brand. The pair just picked up their second run with the NXT Tag Team Titles.

In April of 2022, Stacks and Two Dimes were introduced as associates of the then-heel D’Angelo, and ‘Stacks’ has remained Tony D’Angelo’s trusted partner since then. Together, they have captured the NXT Tag Team Championships twice. Most recently, they regained the titles on the November 14th episode of NXT by defeating Chase U.

On October 10th, John Cena made a guest appearance on NXT and, while in Orlando for the show, generously shared his wealth of knowledge with the aspiring WWE superstars.



During an interview with Niko Knows Best, Stacks reminisced about Cena’s NXT visit and highlighted how the 16-time world champion engaged with The Family to analyze the potential evolution of their stable.

“There’s been a lot of people that have come through, Cena sat us down and dissected what we’re doing and what he thinks NXT can become and what the D’Angelo family can become. There’s so many opportunities for everybody to pick brains because everybody is always coming through.”

We’ll have to see if John Cena ever makes a return to NXT. He has an incredibly busy schedule, and his career is still going at full force in Hollywood. Odds are, if it ever happens again, those NXT Superstars will be long out of the developmental brand by that point.

Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story and many more in the pro wrestling world. You never know what will get booked next, and that is especially true when John Cena is a part of the mix.
