• John Cena Explains Why WWE Has Failed To Produce The Next Top Guy
During a recent interview with BookCon, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena explained why there’s no “top guy” in WWE anymore.
Below is what Cena said:
“For the longest time, if you considered WWE a band, there’s been one front person of the band. I think that dynamic is changing. It is because the audience is too diverse. I think older males are watching it, younger kids are watching it, females are watching it. The audience is so diverse, so with a diverse audience it’s tough to universally please someone.
I don’t think there’s a universal figure that will lead the company forward. I think as the company grows, and especially expands globally, you’re gonna have like a ‘Super Friends’ of the WWE. Which is like people who are essentially fighting for equal share of popularity. I think the band, essentially, will have ten lead singers of every different race, creed, color, ethnicity.”
