John Cena was the face of WWE from 2006 to 2016 and has now adopted the role of a part-timer. He won numerous titles in WWE and managed to become a living legend already. That said, it seems Cena admitted that he was an outcast during his initial days in WWE.
While he was an active competitor in WWE, John Cena noticed a significant difference in the way wrestlers were treated. Reflecting on his time in the company during an interview with Andrew Santino on the Whiskey Ginger show, Cena revealed how he was initially an outcast due to his attitude.
However, Cena quickly learned from his mistakes and changed his behavior. This change would help him eventually become a locker room leader before the end of his stint with the company.
John Cena noted that was a strong sense of brotherhood among the wrestlers during that time. That said, it was also easy to get excluded if a wrestler was not careful. Being ostracized from the locker room was a real thing for those who did not follow the unspoken code of conduct that existed in the wrestling industry.
“I know today, I just try to pass on wisdom at the show because I don’t know the life anybody lives. Back then, there was a lot of camaraderie, a lot of brotherhood. If you weren’t in, you were out. Like when I started, I tried to keep to myself. And keeping to myself, I was out.”
John Cena is set to face off against Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39 for the United States Championship. It remains to be seen how WWE will continue to build the feud between Cena and Theory leading up to WrestleMania 39. However, fans are eagerly anticipating Cena’s return to the Grandest Stage Of Them All and are excited to see what’s in store for him.
