John Cena comments on recent releases

Over the past two years of the global pandemic, WWE has gone on to lay off dozens of main roster and NXT Superstars, with numerous other insiders having suffered the same demise, without them realizing that the worst was coming.

On balance, in just over two years, between released athletes and professionals and among as many athletes who have expressly requested their release, WWE has done without more than 350 employees, with the WWE's offices, backstage and the rosters of the company that have literally emptied.

The latest wave of layoffs has also hit the management and booking team of NXT, with everything passing into the hands of Bruce Prichard following his departure from Triple H due to ill health. Regarding these layoffs, WWE pure-world champion John Cena also wanted to have his say, who in his last interview tried to make fans understand how being fired from WWE could sometimes not be a bad thing to encourage everyone to give their best, trying to build a future in any company they are in.

To the microphones of the Rich Eisen Show, during the promotional phase of his latest work, The Peacemaker, John Cena said: "There's a lot of stuff to unroll. When I started WWE, the company had just absorbed WCW and ECW and so there was a ton of talent out and about on the rosters and development territories."

The thought of John Cena

John Cena also said, "WWE had started releasing twice a year and everyone who left was still trying to build a name of their own. Luckily for me and others, we were in the right place at the right time, with our 'Ruthless Aggression' style growing my characters, Brock, Randy and Dave.

I think it all comes from the passion you have for the business. I believe that the flow of passion that leads you to love the business, then leads people to make a name for themselves even outside of WWE, with the same company sometimes trying to do this with them.

In spite of everything, WWE always continues to hire new talent, to give them a chance, with the Performance Center always being at its maximum capacity. Always being full of talent is a little frustrating for both the company and the athletes themselves, but at the end of the day, it's still a business.

I remember when it started me, Steve Austin had just been released. In that moment, I quickly realized that if someone like Stone Cold could be fired, unless your name was Vince McMahon, everyone could be replaced."
