It doesn’t really matter if he is working a full-time schedule or if he is just there at times, there is no doubt that John Cena is still the most popular superstar on the roster. This wrestler has been a huge spokesperson for the company in the past, he is the one that is representing them in the mainstream media. It is truly amazing to see just for how long he has been able to say at the top.
WWE is now trying to make new stars, but that is easier said than done. With the 50-50 booking that they are usually doing, it is extremely hard for the superstars to get over with the fans. That is one of the main reasons for John Cena still being the man in the company.
When you put part-timers in the main event, it just shows that you don’t have faith in your current talent on the roster, you don’t want to take any risks, and that might be costly in the long run. At this moment, it seems that WWE is doing just fine even though the ratings might tell you otherwise. Cena was recently asked about his feelings on the state of the company, to whom he is going to pass the torch as the top guy and here is what he had to say.
“I think it’s been passed without me. There’s a lot of folks who are currently doing a lot of damage on the roster. The show is thriving in my absence. I think it’s extremely competitive. I did win the 16th Championship at the Rumble but I was unfortunate in my first defense at Elimination Chamber and before that, I hadn’t really been in the Championship picture for a while. I think the company is moving on quite well. I don’t know if there needs to be a formal anointment but they’re really doing well without me.”
