• John Cena Reacts To The Undertaker Calling Current WWE Product “Soft”
During his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, The Undertaker called current WWE product “soft” and that his opinion will piss off a lot of people, but they need to hear it.
Multiple top WWE stars, including WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Universal Champion Roman Reigns, disagreed with Taker’s comments, but there are stars who agreed with what Taker said, including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
During a recent interview with Forbes, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena had the following to say about Taker’s comments:
“I guess I’ve viewed the WWE as a product outside of myself for a long time. I guess that’s why I was so interested in the business side of it from very early on in my career.
In that, I’ve seen it evolve, but I’ve also been called ‘everything that’s ruined sports entertainment.’ I could look at the economics of it and make an argument that between myself — and the large amount of folks that carried on the roster beyond the Attitude Era into the Ruthless Aggression Era and the Reality Era — the fans of the Attitude Era certainly looked at our product as not what they’re used to, and it wasn’t.
So I may have a bit of disagreement with Undertaker’s word choice because I don’t think it’s soft, I think it’s different.
I think it’s bold, it’s forcing people to take chances. Forbes did an article on me back in 2020 where I had said that I don’t believe that WWE will ever have a marquee star. And here we are, less than a year later, and I can blatantly say I was wrong.
You wanna talk about being too close to the product? I was just too close. Having seen it, having lived it myself, I should have just realized that the company is in transition. It takes a long time — I would say it’s three-and-a-half years or more — to build a certain talent because I’ve walked in those shoes.”
