John Cena Talks Dropping the ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’ Character, Comittment to WWE

WWE Superstar John Cena was recently interviewed by ESPN. You can check out some highlights here:

On his commitment to WWE:

“I’ll answer it like this: Every single day that I don’t have an outside obligation, I will fulfill any commitment that I have to WWE. And I will attach this quote with it that every outside obligation I have is to expand the brand of WWE and there has never been a superstar to say that before.”

On dropping ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’:

“To me, there was definitely some method behind it. Hip-hop certainly is in sync with the youth and every day that passes I grow less youthful, as much as I have tried to hold onto it. I knew that the platform really wouldn’t be indicative of success. I knew [the PG format] would just drastically change the style and almost cripple the character so I was the one proactively who said ‘no’ and said ‘I would like to take everything another way.'”

    Well on this one he actually makes sense. He could have rode the gimmick out longer but eventually he would have had to change. No one is going to believe a 40 year old white wrestling rapper let’s be honest here and I loved the gimmick. Also he’s correct about it not being able to thrive in a PG era some of his promos were vicious back in the day.

    I wonder if cena is hiding his guilt for implementing the PG idea to Vince, cena is so overrated and overexposed

    Remember when he thought he was a Marine?
