John Cena: Performances like that almost got me fired

Throughout our career; whether in sports, business, etc., we make many mistakes and things that we regret. There will always be things you regret no matter how successful you are. John Cena, one of the best in the WWE, recalled his debut, and attitude towards Undertaker after the match with Kurt Angle.

He is not happy about his approach to Undertaker at the moment. “It’s not a shame ’cause it was a good learning experience, and the story turned out okay,” Cena said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc. “But especially now, after I see the match and I see the audience with where they lose interest, you have to slow down, you have to tell a story and just doing what I was told in performances like that almost got me fired.

I could see why ’cause you look at the audience, nobody cares. “I guess looking back at it, I’m grateful for the moment, I’m grateful I debuted in such a historic arena with such an amazing performer [in Angle], but I’m also grateful it didn’t go well cause it taught me, especially when ‘The Doctor of Thuganomics’ character was introduced, I was neither ruthless nor aggressive."

John Cena: I was quite submissive

However, John Cena was inexperienced in that period, those were his beginnings, and now he is one of the best ever. We have to congratulate him on that. "I was quite submissive, and passive, and acted like a fan, and I was.

That’s okay, but you can’t do that there. You have to stand out. You have to have a personality where somebody can attach to, and everybody would have done the exact same thing in my interaction with the Undertaker, whether they were a paying customer or backstage.

Everybody would have done the same thing. So what does that make me different than anybody else? That stuff is nice, but it didn’t help at all”.
