John Cena was considered the most polarizing figure in the history of WWE, that was until WWE decided to make Roman Reigns their next face of the company.
However interestingly, during a recent interview on Jimmy Traina’s SI Media Podcast, the Cenation Leader actually took the responsibility for Roman’s negative fan reaction.
Cena said that the Shield member has it tough and that he kind of ruined this for everybody with the format change the company did while entering the ruthless aggression era:
Roman has it tough. I kind of ruined this for everybody; the content and the format change did. Attitude Era was male 18-35. And our program still draws males 18-35. But we’re a PG program. Which means your audience is a six year old. I don’t say don’t cater to the male 18-35, but your audience starts at six or younger. So you have to give them essentially Shrek or Cars, or the Lego movie. Sometimes 18-35 year old dudes don’t want to watch the Lego movie. Don’t think there’s not a second in my mind that our audience isn’t six. Our audience is so mixed that there’s never going to be a good guy that appeals to everyone.
