John Cena Believes There’s Decades Worth Of Story Left In WWE Character WWE

John Cena has shared his thoughts on his WWE character, believing that there was a decades worth of story in exploring his flaws.

Speaking with GQ, Cena proved that he’s well aware of fan criticisms about his character. The 16-time World Champion pointed out that he doesn’t run WWE, but if he was in charge of decision-making, he would’ve explored his character’s flaws long ago.

Discussing his pitches for subtle storylines, Cena said:

“It takes a certain type of individual to go out there and play your hit song every night for two decades. There are decisions I can make, but I don’t make, ‘Okay, now John Cena’s gonna be a bad guy.’ I don’t make that choice.

“Then I can be like, ‘Okay, I’m never gonna be a bad guy. How can I nuance a virtuous character?’ Would it have been great to be able to mess with the ‘flaws’ of WWE John Cena? Oh my goodness, I think there’s another ten years worth of story in there. But it’s not my choice. I don’t run the company.”

Cena recently revealed that Vince McMahon almost turned him heel ahead of WrestleMania 28 in 2012, but decided against it.

The former WWE Champion last wrestled at SummerSlam 2021, unsuccessfully challenging for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship.

Reigns is set to defend the gold against Goldberg at Elimination Chamber. Check out the current line-up for the show at this link.
