John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company on his back throughout the PG era. Since 2017, John Cena became a part-timer in WWE and has appeared sporadically due to his busy schedule in Hollywood. It seems Cena opened up about his character evolution in WWE.
However, John Cena was not always interested in becoming a professional wrestler and certainly had a long journey ahead of him before he could realize his potential as a professional wrestler.
When Cena started his career in WWE back in 2002, his character was viewed as a very uninspiring babyface with no personality. While speaking with The Pat McAfee Show, John Cena talked about the evolution of his character in WWE. Cena admitted his character started off as generic.
“I’m playing a character that, you know, like I said, a character of virtue, a character that started as a generic wrestler, and then morphed into this hip-hop persona, then morphed into this character of virtue.”
We will have to wait and see when John Cena will return to the company as fans will always be glad to see the Leader of Cenation back in any capacity.
