Whether you like him or not, you have to admit that John Cena has done a lot for WWE in the past decade and he has proved to be a loyal employee for the company.
Though you can also not neglect the fact that he has a reputation of ‘burying talents’. During his recent interview with the Warp, the Cenation leader addressed this reputation. Below is what Cena said:
First John said that he has never asked anyone to ‘pull a punch’ while performing in the ring and stated that he had to earn every inch of what he has been given:
“If you look at my existence in WWE, I have never asked anyone and will never ask anyone to pull any punches, I believe that it’s a ‘Strong Survive’ environment, and accept nothing less. I think people forget my [history] in WWE sometimes and the fact that I truly had to earn every inch. There is this overwhelming perception that I am protected and coddled — that couldn’t be father from the truth.”
Continuing on the topic, the former World Champion claimed that this is the reason why he has a reputation of burying talents because he lets the talent do whatever they want and then punches back:
“This is why I have the reputation of quote-unquote ‘burying younger talent,’ because I will let them do whatever they want with me — and then after they get done, they’re not as motivated, So, it’s not that I sink their ship, it’s that they fail to operate at an elite level. And I’m on to the next person, [to] whom I say, “Hey man, bring your best punch and I’m gonna punch back” — and they don’t take that attitude beyond me.”
Finally, the former 16-time world champion summed it up in a single line saying that it’s all about how much you are willing to invest:
“It’s all just about how much you’re willing to invest and how strongly you believe in what you want to do”
