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.”

    I cant believe Cena even said that. O snap, I had to slap myself I forgot who were talking about. WTF

    It’s a valid comparison. As with Tebow, I think a lot of the “hate” is backlash. Tebow fans acted like he was the second coming of Steve Young, and real football fans got tired of it. There is only a certain amount you can hear about the guy before it starts to get on your nerves. The same with Cena. The WWE ran package after package, trying to brainwash everyone and their cat into thinking Cena is the best, hardest working human being on earth, and those that didn’t buy into it got sick of it.

    The only thing they have in common is that they both look like shit when performing but always win because of a “higher power” whether its hod or vince mcmahon

    Way to further polarize yourself.

    ^^ What he said. However, the reason why people started hating Cena was because they started hating the gimmick he was forced into by management because of the FARCE of the PG Era in order to get Linda McMahon elected in the Senate.

    I just call it like it is. Anytime Cena shows any semblance of the “Thuganomics” character the crowd eats it up. Quite frankly, a lot of people feel like Cena turned his back on them. I’m not saying that is true or false, I’m just saying that is the feeling at the foundation of Cena-Hate.

    Hey Ray ever watch ESPN or the NFL network? What WWE does with Cena ain’t shit in comparison to how Tenow is forced down peoples throat. Crmas right though. They are pretty similar. A couple of decent hard working guys who get vilified for being clean cut guys whose management has decided we need to be reminded of their “greatness” every waking moment.

    No, Cena, we dislike you because you’re crammed down our throats each and every week. We only have to see Tebow so many weeks out of the year where as we have to see you each and every week the whole year.
