In 2023, WWE has witnessed an unprecedented surge in the career of LA Knight, marking a resurgence of fan support not seen in quite some time. The fervor for this wrestling sensation began to build around the time of WrestleMania and has been steadily gaining momentum week after week, with no signs of slowing down.
John Cena, a name synonymous with the WWE and no stranger to the passionate wrestling fanbase, has himself experienced the extremes of adoration and dissent, earning him the title of "The most polarizing figure in all of WWE" by commentators.
During a recent appearance on "The Bump," Cena expressed his delight at the company's decision to align LA Knight with the rising tide of fan enthusiasm. Cena remarked, "I could spend hours discussing why I love WWE, and moments like this are a big part of it.
The unpredictability, the organic reactions of the audience, and the freedom to let the WWE Universe guide the narrative – it's truly wonderful. As performers, we get to listen to the most important superstar out there, and that's the WWE Universe."
