John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company on his back throughout the PG era. From 2017 John Cena became a part-timer in WWE and has appeared sporadically due to his busy schedule in Hollywood. That could change after SummerSlam, but he is still booked for the SmackDown supershow at Madison Square Garden.
John Cena being the face of the company for so long, developed a solid relationship with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and the two have mutual respect for one another.
Many fans believe that John Cena gets preferential treatment from Vince McMahon and that he can do whatever Cena wants. While speaking to ID10T with Chris Hardwick, John Cena set the record straight for those who believe Vince McMahon lets Cena do whatever he wants.
“I heard it so much in WWE. ‘Well, Vince lets him do whatever he wants. That’s why he can consistently perform at a level that’s acceptable and entertaining to the audience. He gets to do whatever he wants. Nope, I ask and I execute and I invest and I’m meticulous with the detail and I’m consistent night in night out. I’m trustworthy, I’m giving of self. The perception everyone else has is, ‘He just has a better situation.’ And I’m not taking away from anybody’s struggle and I’ve learned to appreciate everyone’s struggle, and everyone has a different struggle. I can understand where those struggles come from.”
John Cena also made it clear he plans to stick around after the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view if he wins the WWE Universal Championship from Roman Reigns. We will have to wait and see how his match against Roman Reigns at WWE SummerSlam will be booked as we approach the pay-per-view and if he will end up winning the match or not.
