John Cena recently opened up big time on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness. He started by discussing how some people on WWE’s roster don’t show the gumption to expand their character.
Christian brought up the fact how a pro wrestling character is just a template to expand on and Cena agreed with him wholeheartedly. Super Cena also went on to elaborate on how he felt about the current mood in the WWE locker room.
“The amount of complacency is staggering I mean these guys are all so gifted and there’s never been a better time ever to make a name for yourself in WWE. With all of the platforms that we have. With Raw, with SmackDown, with NXT we’re increasing our amount of pay-per-views. We’re throwing so much content at the network it’s insane.”
“We have so many guys with so many chances I just don’t get it. [Edge and Christian] certainly knows better than I do because I came in at the tail-end of like ‘hey man everybody’s just gonna have to quit to even get a chance.’ And I got my chance by mistake and I knew that.”
“So it’s not like ‘he’s sitting on his high hill and not practicing what he preaches’ — I’m every single day I go out there and take those chances and that’s the reason why I got to where I was at.”
“Here’s the great thing about Vince is that he will explain everything” Cena continued. “A lot of guys go into the creative process and they get upset and they just put their head down and they X, Y, and Z and that’s that. If you’re really that upset go to the person you work for and simply ask a question why. ‘Why are we doing this?’ because 99 times out of 100 Vince will tell you, ‘hey this is the creative ethos behind this thought’ — you want aways going: ‘okay that helps me out I can do it.'”
