WrestleMania is without any doubt the biggest stage for a WWE Superstar to perform. As mentioned above, John Cena is a veteran at not just performing at the Grandest Stage of them All, but also main-eventing it on multiple occasions.

At WrestleMania 28, John Cena was scheduled to main-event the show with The Rock in their infamous "Once in a Lifetime Match". It was here when he showcased just how great of a lockerroom leader he is by intentionally taking a so-called bathroom break to give Brodus Clay his spot, which was almost cut at the last moment due to lack of time. Brodus revealed the following about that incidents with John Cena while talking to Brian Fritz of Between the Ropes radio at WrestleMania Axxess:


"I was actually in Gorilla ready to go out to do this dance that I had practiced so hard and we were extremely nervous and we ran out of time."
"John Cena suddenly came over to me and looked at me and said, 'I have to go to the bathroom.' So, here's a guy who's getting ready for his match with The Rock and he actually 'went to the bathroom.' He asked, 'How long do I need to go for?' I said, 'Like six minutes.' He's like, 'I'll be back in six minutes.' So, we were able to slide out there and get in. If it weren't for him, we probably wouldn't have even been out there last year."
