In a recent interview with the London Free Press, John Cena compared his hate fans have towards him to NFL Quarterback Tim Tebow. Here is what was said.
“When Steve Austin was flipping everyone off, doing all of those things considered evil things, he became the ultimate cool guy,” said Cena. “On the flip side of things, although I can handle business when I need to, I really make conscious choices to do the right thing. There’s still a giant portion of the audience associated to the Attitude era that I believe thinks I am a bad guy.
But I’m not a bad guy. I generate so much hatred just because of the way I act. I look at Tim Tebow as a good example. People couldn’t stop saying his name. He’s such a standup guy. People don’t believe it because it’s almost too good to be true. And he generates that hatred.”
