Last year, John Cena made a comment that he didn’t think WWE would ever have a marquee star. Now, he has admitted that he was wrong.
Cena recently spoke with Forbes where he said that Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns and Sasha Banks are all marquee stars. Here is the quote:
“Forbes did an article on me back in 2020 where I had said that I don’t believe that WWE will ever have a marquee star. And here we are, less than a year later, and I can blatantly say I was wrong…
Now you have Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks can be in that conversation, but it’s not what I said it was in 2020. It’s not a scattered fragment of Super Friends. WWE has just refocused, re-shifted and now is consolidating on marquee stars. They have their marquee stars, and going forward they will have their big names. As far as those names being larger than life, the enormity of their impact is up to the individuals themselves.”
John Cena also mentioned to Forbes that he would not be able to make it to WrestleMania 37 because of the pandemic. You can read more about that here.
