John Cena was one of the main people behind the “Ruthless Aggression” era on WWE, but he says “it sucked” for him.
Speaking on a recent edition of the “Notsam Wrestling” podcast, the 16-time WWE Champion commented on nearly being cut during the era that he built, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the Ruthless Aggression Era: “It sucked for me. I had no direction, I was asked to be a good guy when I’d gotten my experience as a bad guy, so I was asked to do something new. I lost my nickname, I had my real name, so what is a John Cena? I don’t know what that is. I was too stupid to realize that I could use the two words — ‘ruthless’ and ‘aggression’ — and create a personality. I wish I could get that opportunity now.”
On nearly being cut in that time: “The European tour in the fall saved me, so that’s my scariest moment. There have been so many performers that have been released from WWE and go onto really have wonderful careers elsewhere and then maybe, eventually come back, and that’s fine. I don’t think I would’ve come back. I don’t think I would’ve done anything else.”
