Cena’s glittering career took off in 2002 with a stunning debut against Angle on Smackdown where he proved to be a promising talent even though he lost.
The two WWE legends faced each other many times after that on Smackdown and RAW as well as on Pay-Per-Views like Survivor Series, No Mercy and No Way Out.
Angle also took on Orton at WrestleMania 22 in a Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship, which also included Rey Mysterio.
The 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist continued his rivalry with The Viper during WWE’s rivalry with ECW in 2006 and faced him at ECW One Night Stand as well as Vengeance.
The six-time world champion is very happy with the way these two feuds panned out but doesn’t feel like the WWE universe sees them the same way as his rivalries with Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock or Brock Lesnar.
The ex-WWE Champion said during a Facebook Q&A after being asked which of his matches people underrate: “My matches with Orton and Cena.
“They seem to be overshadowed by my matches with Austin, Rock, [Under]Taker, Eddie [Guerrero], [Chris] Benoit, Mysterio, [Shawn] Michaels and Lesnar.
“I loved my matches with Orton and Cena.”
Angle is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time as he has beaten the best WWE ever had to offer.
He is also an ex-Intercontinental, European, Hardcore, United States and WWE Tag Team Champion as well as a former King of the Ring winner.
The ex-WWE Champion returned to Vince McMahon’s promotion last year after an 11-year absence and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Cena.
He was appointed as RAW’s General Manager immediately after WrestleMania 33 and quickly returned to the ring at TLC.
The wrestling legend teamed up with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose after their Shield partner Roman Reigns was sidelined due to an undisclosed illness.
The dream team beat The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman and Kane in a 5-on-3 Tables, Ladders and Chairs Handicap Match at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
He then captained Team RAW and led Triple H, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor and Strowman to victory over Team Smackdown’s Shane McMahon, Orton, Cena, Bobby Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura at Survivor Series.
But the best match of Angle’s second WWE run took place at WrestleMania 34 where he teamed up with fellow Olympian Ronda Rousey and beat McMahon as well as Triple H in a Mixed Tag Team Match.
His last in-ring appearance took place at the Greatest Royal Rumble last April in Saudi Arabia where he competed in the first ever 50-man over-the-top-rope battle royal.
