John Cena is one of the few WWE superstars to have made a significant impact in the world of professional wrestling. Cena remains a highly divisive figure in pro wrestling no matter what. In fact, Cena has now been accused of stepping on toes in order to get over in WWE.
The Leader of Cenation did not initially harbor ambitions of becoming a professional wrestler. In fact, he faced a lengthy and challenging journey before he could ultimately achieve his full potential in the world of professional wrestling.
During his prime, no WWE Superstar was as heavily promoted as John Cena, and he was known to be quite protective of his character. In a recent interview, Heath Slater shared his experiences of working with the 16-time world champion.
Slater expressed that he had no negative experiences with Cena outside of the ring, as the Hollywood actor was always pleasant and cordial during their interactions.
However, when it came to his on-screen persona, Cena was known for being very particular and often portrayed as an unbeatable force. Slater revealed in a Wrestling Shoot Interviews discussion that while he personally preferred to work collaboratively with his fellow wrestlers, Cena would not hesitate to assert himself and prioritize his character’s reputation, even if it meant “stepping on other people’s toes.”
“Okay, Cena was always cool with me. He was. Like, I don’t have a bad thing to say about John. But the one thing I know about John Cena is that he is all about John Cena. You know what I mean? Which any person would be if you were in this environment, but I’ve never been that ‘Me, me, me,’ guy; I’ve been more like, ‘Hey, let’s spread the love.’ You know what I mean? Let’s spread it out a little bit, man. I can help you; you can help me, this and that. But you can honestly say, like, with John, it’s like, I’m doing this, this is what I’ve got to do, you know, ‘I’m sorry if I step on your toes.'”
In conclusion, while John Cena has undoubtedly left a significant impact on the world of professional wrestling, his reputation is not without its flaws. As a heavily promoted WWE superstar, Cena was known for being protective of his character and was willing to prioritize his reputation even if it meant stepping on the toes of his fellow wrestlers.
Regardless, his fans continue to admire his charisma, work ethic, and dedication to his craft. What are your thoughts on Cena’s approach to his character and his impact on the wrestling industry? Sound off in the comments!
