Yesterday (Sun. April 23, 2017) was WWE Superstar John Cena’s birthday, and ‘The Chairman Of The Board’ Vince McMahon took to Twitter to send his best wishes to his longtime golden goose, but it didn’t come without a controversial comparison between Cena and one of the greatest baseball players of all time:
“Hustle Loyalty Respect” is not just an expression, it’s the measure of the man. Happy birthday to the Babe Ruth of WWE, @JohnCena.
— Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) April 23, 2017
The comparison really seemed to upset a lot of sports fans who replied to the Tweet, but it should be mentioned that this isn’t the first time McMahon has used the comparison, as he has stated before that Hulk Hogan is the Babe Ruth of WWE.
