John Cena comments on the anti-Cena t-shirts



There’s a new way for John Cena to make money off those people who actually hate him as WWE began selling the ‘Cena Sucks’ t-shirts at the
weekend live events. Cena is the top earner in the company when it comes to royalties from merchandise and his new t-shirt will certainly drive in more
revenue if the tons of Cena haters buy one to display their opinion. When a fan on Twitter asked the former champ if it’s true that the new ‘Cena Sucks’
t-shirts are on sale, Cena said that the company have wanted to do it since 2008 but he always said no. “Finally I just said I don’t care. I’m fine with
the way things are. Some like me. Some don’t,” he replied. “Ignore it no longer,” he added. “It’s out there so those that wanna be like that should
be able to voice their opinion.”

    for someone who’s always said he didn’t care if people loved him or hated him it shouldn’t have taken him this long to be ok with this….

    3 years in the making? Wow, that’s a lotta revenue lost, but since more people hate him now more than ever, and siding with everyone’s favorite wrestler-turned-actor, these shirts will go so fast, (insert cliche here)! Lol

    for those who really don’t like him its simple just don’t react then he’ll go away quicker

  4. Asterik says:

    Here’s an idea, when Cena enters the arena nobody cheers or boo him, then Vince will drop Cena as the top guy of the WWE and let the real performers like Dolph, Cody, Danielson, Punk, plus others to take up the mantle. If there is no reaction towards a Pro Wrestler, then there will be a chance that the wrestler would lose popularity and not hog up the spotlight that other performers of the WWE deserve.

    But I highly doubt that, Cena has connections and the Pro Wrestling biz is all politics, if you don’t know anybody in the business you won’t get the same push as the Cenas, Ortons, Hogans, or Triple H’s. I think the only reason why Cena got his major pushes is because of his connections like his father….Maybe Cena Sr. and Vince are in cahoots and that is why Cena enjoyed so much success in the WWE.

    In the end, Cena has the last laugh because he’s going to make something off the fans who really do hate him. Irony?

  6. Fisha695 says:

    @Doorman, adding onto what you said, for those that don’t really like him don’t buy the shirts. As the article says even if they are “Anti-Cena” shirts they’re still Cena shirts and the sales from them still count towards his sales totals.

    imagine that the haters get a way to show there opinion off and there still not happy!

  8. John says:

    It’s funny everyone hates Cena so much. Most say it’s because he cannot wrestle. It’s also funny because two of the biggest stars the WWF/WWE ever had could not wrestle either. Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant couldn’t wrestle their way out of a paper bag, but they carried the company for years. Cena can’t wrestle, but still many love him. No different than the previous two mentioned. Hell, even Austin wasn’t all that as a wrestler, but the fans loved him.

    One can hardly blame Cena for all that goes on in WWE. He does what Vince and his crew tell him to do. Just like it has always been. Vince keeps Cena in the spotlight because people cheer (one way or another). They buy his merchandise and fill seats. Vince could care less if he can wrestle or not. Vince is interested in what all promoters are interested in: Can he make money. It’s always been that way and always will. Cena shouldn’t be blamed for anything that his character does, as Creative are the people to yell and scream at because he is there all the time. If you don’t want Cena around anymore, do as several people here state: Don’t cheer, don’t boo, don’t buy his stuff. When that starts to happen, then, and only then will Vince decide it is time for Cena to go.

  9. McMahon says:

    If no one booed him then he’d still get huge reactions, just entirely full of cheers.

  10. -J- says:

    they hated rocky as well, recall the die rocky die chants so brutal…then look what happen, but its different in this case but its smart business to capitalize off the anti-cena fans…they are building the perfect storm to turn the guy into a super heel, but will they follow through?

  11. ThePreston says:

    @John totally agree. hey, i’m no ‘little jimmy’ but i do respect the guy and think he gets crapped on WAY too much. he is what he is, love him or hate him, Cena is getting the exact reactions WWE is looking for. Actually, this is kind of something I’m shocked we haven’t seen before. Why push someone to be a face or a heel when you can just push both, and sell merchandise for both sides of the fence? Which is why, trust me,we’re going to see a lot more of this.
    It’s like Team Edward vs. Team Jacob…no matter what, the a$$holes who made the Twilight movies are the true winners.

  12. ThePreston says:

    You could say he’s being force fed NOW, and this is their way of saying “Yeah, we know you hate him, and we dont care. Here’s another 5 years of him being shoved in your face”.. But try to think back to when Cena first debuted..with absolutely no hype,no Brodus Clay-type video announcing his impending MONSTROUS, EPIC debut..just as well,some dude. that has a lot of different colored trunks. pretty generic.. without a long, orchestrated push being built up as “THE NEXT BIG THING”..or even The next Hulk Hogan (e.g Lex Luger!)
    Not Cena, in fact he was SQUASHED by Brock Lesnar on Smackdown in one of his first televised matches.. Not exactly the making of a “SUPER CENA”, if you ask me… Then, seemingly out of nowhere, begins feuding with and gets a nice rub and subsequent endorsement from Chris Jericho,(who did the clean job to him in an impromptu ppv match).. at some point goes heel, and in a Halloween episode dresses as Vanilla Ice, and starts to rap. Stephanie McMahon loved it and told him he should do it more… so we end up with “John Cena, Rapping Wigger”, .. It actually gets over-so much that NOBODY wanted to BOO Cena(imagine that!) So he’s turned face again, pushed accordingly…and the rest is, as they say, history.

    …does any of this sound familiar?
    “woo woo woo! you know it” :)

    I also respect the guy. He busts his ass like no other. If I were running a business I’d take a worker like him anyday.

  14. J-Ro says:

    I wouldn’t want the WWE to promote hatred either, but its a great way to build for wrestlemania28

  15. Fisha695 says:

    @ Those who said they like/respect Cena and he’s just doing what he’s told to do, I fully agree. Yes he gets a lot of crap for “5 moves of doom”, but that’s the same amount so many of these “Legends” had and not like it’s his choice.

    I still remember a few years back on one of the UK RAW TV Tapings in I think 2007 Cena & HBK had an almost hour long match that was simply amazing. Cena showed that if allowed to work with a full moveset not only could he do it, but he could carry a match with a (let’s be honest here) less then 100% HBK.
