Shinsuke Nakamura On Backstage Reaction After He Dropped John Cena On His Head

If you recall, Shinsuke Nakamura faced off against John Cena last year on an episode of Smackdown Live where Nakamura went for the inverted-exploder suplex on Cena and Cena landed right on his head. However, Cena was fine.

Nakamura was recently interviewed by Gorilla Position where he spoke about the backstage reaction to the incident. Here is what he had to say (transcript courtesy of (via Pro Wrestling):

“Someone was upset backstage, not John Cena. But someone. They got pissed off at me, ‘why did you do that?’. So I just thought, my career is finished, today. But everybody came to support me and help me, even John Cena. [Cena said] ‘not your fault, it was my fault’.”
