Cena expects, wants anti-Cena crowd in Chicago

The Chicago Tribune is featuring an interview with WWE Champion John Cena who talks about expecting a very hostile crowd this Sunday in Chicago, Illinois at the Money in the Bank PPV where he will defend his title against CM Punk.

“Chicago fans greeted me with a ‘(Expletive) you, Cena’ chant. Chicago fans cheer and boo who they want. They’re great fans whether they like me or not. They show you how they feel. I don’t like crowds that sit on their hands. CM Punk is truly very proud of his city, and I think the city embraces him for it. He wears the Chicago flag on his trunks. Whether it will be more anti-Cena or more pro-CM Punk, I think it will really be great.”

Cena also discusses the frustration of how WWE operates in the storyline involving CM Punk and how others like MVP voice a similar opinion before moving on.

“Here’s a guy (Punk) who literally is a pure-bred wrestler, who loves the business and loves being able to go out and compete. I can understand his frustration. But you can’t ignore the attraction of The Rock being involved. I know he’s not going to leave wrestling. He’s leaving WWE. There’s a difference. CM Punk doesn’t feel he’s been treated properly in WWE. We’ve had this problem before. MVP was another one who felt he wasn’t treated well and has gone on to have a prolific career in Japan. Same with A-Train. I have more respect for a guy who leaves the company to better himself in another territory. But all roads lead back to Rome. If you’re successful, you’ll find your way back.”

    Well it’s easy for Cena to say that when there is zero chance that the crowd will cheer him Sunday. The crowd will be almost 100 percent behind CM Punk.

    I’m sure the crowd will be creative with their ‘Anti-Cena’ chants. “F*** 22” and “Colt Cabana” comes to mind.

    It aint about you Cena…nobody gives a sh*t about you, perfect time to turn him heel and that’s about it.

    Not really. Cena is one of the few faces.. that WWE seems to care about, at least. There isn’t any face who could really “replace” him right now, or anyone who could have a good face turn.

    Anyways.. If I were the parent of a Little Jimmy, I wouldn’t take my kids to MITB. Probably wouldn’t buy it on PPV, either. Everyone booing Cena sounds like learning Santa or Superman isn’t real..

    I really miss heel Cena. I think he should definitely turn heel again. One of the biggest problems a lot of people have with him is the over the top goodie goodie character he portrays. Even if that is who he really is (I have heard it is)it gets old as a wrestling character. There is nothing wrong with being a nice guy in a real life but it makes for a boring character to watch especially as a hero. I like my heroes flawed.

    what if cena comes out to word life and wears that chain to the ring? I would def mark out for him than!!! But i still see a bret hart screw job ending with the sfu or anaconda vice getting locked in and vince telling the ref to ring the bell..
