• Possible Indication That John Cena Won’t Be Given The Utmost Importance In WWE
As we noted yesterday, Wrestling Observer reported that Arn Anderson was fired from WWE over an incident with Vince McMahon concerning an issue at a recent WWE Live Event.
It was noted that Arn was 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena’s agent in the WWE.
With that being said, Wrestling Observer noted that Cena’s agent being released could be a possible indication that Cena won’t be given the utmost importance in WWE as he isn’t viewed as “The Guy” anymore and that was the reason why Vince wasn’t hesitant in releasing Arn from the company.
It was also noted that if Cena was still a full-timer, then Arn wouldn’t have been released. However, since Cena isn’t around that much, WWE went ahead with the release of Arn Anderson.
