The Irony of WWE's Concern Regarding John Cena (The RAW View)
Recently Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported the WWE is growing concerned about John Cena's future with the company... and I find it a bit ironic considering in 2014, the WWE sent the message 'they were moving on from Cena'.
- In hindsight, the decision to have Cena destroyed by Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam was the start of the latest decline of viewership for Monday Night RAW, after all no kids wants to see their heroes slaughtered
- While Cena has said he'd remain associated with the WWE long past when his days in the ring end, looking at outside projects is a wise move considering how the WWE has presented him in the past couple of years
- Prior to 2014, Cena was the 'safety blanket', for when the guys the WWE tried to push failed, the #1 spot would go back to him, since then the WWE has resisted doing that, but it's clear nothing they have done since then is working.
- Cena's popularity and demand has exploded in 2016, and since the WWE put him in the position to where he can easily pursue other projects, it's their own fault.
