16-time WWE World Champion John Cena recently spoke at BookCon ’19 to promote his book, “Elbow Grease.” Cena discussed several professional wrestling topics, including who he thinks will be the next John Cena, and how he thinks no one wrestler will ever lead the WWE again.
Here are the highlights:
Who will be the next John Cena: “For the longest time, if you considered WWE a band, there’s been one front person of the band,” Cena replied. “I think that dynamic is changing. It is because the audience is too diverse. I think older males are watching it, younger kids are watching it, females are watching it. The audience is so diverse, so with a diverse audience it’s tough to universally please someone.”
No one wrestler will ever lead the WWE again: “I don’t think there’s a universal figure that will lead the company forward,” Cena added. “I think as the company grows, and especially expands globally, you’re gonna have like a ‘Super Friends’ of the WWE. Which is like people who are essentially fighting for equal share of popularity. I think the band, essentially, will have ten lead singers of every different race, creed, color, sex, ethnicity.”
