John Cena was asked why he changed out of his Dr. Of Thuganomics character and if he would return to this non-TV-PG persona during a Q&A at MegaCon. He relayed not only the reason for changing this character but also how special it still is to him.

“The rating of our television show changed and I didn’t want to lose my job. But I will say this Thuganomics was started before you were born and I still have my degree and I love that lime in my career. But I also know where we are. I know the company that I work for and it’s truly an honor seeing a young man like you wearing things that are close to me that I believe in. I liked it then but I really, really like it now”

Thug Life was one of the first sayings of Cena’s that made him a standout character. Maybe we will someday see a glimpse of his Thuganomics character again but it’s not likely to be anything that stays around as long as WWE is a family-friendly company.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
