WWE News: John Cena reveals his story of almost getting axed
The 16-time World Champion recently sat down with Buzzfeed, where he revealed that if it wasn’t for his freestyle rapping in a WWE tour bus, he would have been shown the exit door by the company. Undoubtedly Cena’s first character was musty and unentertaining until the “Doctor of Thuganomics” happened. Cena said,
“So I debuted as John Cena, the most stale, unentertaining character you can imagine, and was just about to be fired after a year and a half of me trying to connect with the audience. On what was supposed to be one of my last tours – when we go overseas we all travel together – and in the back of the bus, people were freestyling. I remember I just went back and joined in, and in the front of the bus, the creative department was like ‘hey how did you remember all that?’”
John Cena further revealed that he explained to the creative team about his freestyle rapping, which paid heavy dividends. In his teenage, he used to be bullied for his freestyle wrestling, but with the “Doctor of Thuganomics” character, everything fell into place for the 16-time World Champion.
