John Cena is one of WWE’s biggest success stories and there’s no arguing that. Cena carried the company on his back for nearly a decade and successfully crossed over into Hollywood. That being said, he might have racked up a few opps along the way.
One of Cena’s earlier gimmicks in the WWE was inspired by freestyle rap acts. Cena played a heel rapper who would diss his opponent before the match with freestyle rap.
Cena retired the Thuganomics gimmick several months into his first WWE title win against John Bradshaw Layfield in 2005. As the Dr. of Thuganomics, Cena came up with different rap verses to belittle his opponents. Now he is being called out for jacking a few of those lines.
According to Copywrite, Cena stole his lyrics for his performances on WWE television. The legendary underground rapper claims Cena took lyrics from Copywrite without permission for his rapper persona.
Copywrite took shots at Cena in a new diss track called “Spoiler Alert / Have U Cena?” The track is part of Copywrite’s new album, “The High Exaulted II,” a sequel to his 2002 album “High Exhaulted.”
In said diss track, Copywrite takes major shots at Cena and dissects the situation in detail, exposing the WWE superstar’s habit of stealing lyrics from him and a few other rappers. He also included a couple of references to back up his claim.
