John Cena has teared up talking about fellow WWE star Edge 'giving so much'.
The 46-year-old, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, has released an extremely emotional statement about Adam Joseph Copeland, 49, better known by the ring name, Edge.
When discussing the former 4-time WWE champ, Cena couldn't help but fight back tears. Have a look:
It's no secret that, over his 20-year career in WWE, Cena has been no stranger to a whole bunch of ringside rivalries.
Cena had a whole bunch of tussles with a WWE Hall of Famer Edge first dating back to 2006 when they locked horns in their first-ever singles match.
Edge went on to emerge as victor from the fight and, throughout the years, the two stars fought on a whole host of other occasions.
Given their colourful history together, Cena has not been shy to open up on exactly how he feels about his feuding partner.
The latest comes this week when WWE posted Cena's heartfelt statement about Edge to Twitter earlier this week on Tuesday (6 June).
It showed the star tearing up as he said: "I really hope everyone watching knows just how gifted, and caring, and amazing Adam is.
"He's just a... he's a good human being, he's a great human being, he loves sports entertainment."
Brought to tears, Cena then concluded: "He's given so much to you guys, and I also think he's aware of what you've given him."
The WWE clip has since clocked up hundreds of thousands of views with many fans eager to share their reactions to the latest instalment between the two, now retired, superstars.
One Twitter user commented: "Great. Now I am crying."
A second penned: "Such an amazing rivalry in 2006. Oh god, now I'm in tears too."
Many others were clearly hit with a powerful injection of nostalgia as they reminisced about the two wrestling icons and their decade-spanning history together.
One fan wrote: "These two were made for each other."
"My childhood," posted another.
Others wanted to see Cena and Edge - who are now both at the tail-end of their colossal careers - go at it one last time for all time's sake.
A final Twitter user wrote: "Cena vs Edge. Retirement match for both of them."
Now that would be a match for the ages.
