Being a top guy in WWE means that you are always criticized by people online, and one of the main criticism for the chosen one of WWE is that they bury young talents.
John Cena who was in the company’s top spot for almost 15 years is no stranger to this criticisms, and things have apparently not changed even when he has taken a break from this responsibility.
During his recent interview on Jimmy Traina’s SI Media Podcast, John talked about his reputation of burying talent and said that people who criticized him for staying around for too long now criticize him for not being present:
“I don’t care about the reputation I have. What I care about is the performance I give. But the easiest way to just silence that problem is to take me out of the equation. Here’s the crazy thing, all the people that have chastised me for staying around too long, are now chastising me for not being around. (It’s) also a great exercise to know that you will never be able to please these people, because they always need something to be cynical about. I guess that’s why they are called critics.”
Apart from this, John Cena also talked about his early days in the company and how they were left with only younger talents because all older stars had left.
