John Cena Sr. On Why “Woken” Matt Hardy Can’t Work In WWE

John Cena Sr., father of 16-time WWE World Champion John Cena, recently did an interview with Boston Wrestling Sports to talk about a variety of professional wrestling topics. Below are the highlights:

His thoughts on the “Woken” Matt character in WWE: “Been there. Done that. Let’s move on,” Cena said. “It might start a little bit of a fire in WWE, I give it 30 days, 45 days, before it gets watered on, and the ‘Woken’ becomes broken.”

Vince McMahon finally giving in to fans on the gimmick: “I think [WWE is] building that feud up. I feel so bad, because it’s just not the right time,” Cena said. “It’s not the thing to do. The gimmick- here’s the thing, everybody wanted more frosting on the cake. Finally, Vince [McMahon], WWE, the writers go ‘Okay, we’re gonna give you more frosting on the cake,’ and what’s the first thing that happens when you first bite the cake? ‘Too [much] sweetness, too much frosting on the cake. I don’t like it!’ And that’s exactly what’s gonna to happen. I make the prediction here and now, the ‘Woken’ is gonna be broken.”

Anthem’s legal battle with Matt over the gimmick possibly hurting the character: “I don’t think it’s going to help anybody, I really don’t,” Cena replied. “I think Matt has kind of made a mistake, because what worked before, might not necessarily work again. And the fans were so agitated by Impact Wrestling and what’s been done, it’s kind of like, they’ve heard so much about it now, it’s kind of sour. It’s more frosting on the cake, but it’s too sweet.”


How he’d book Bray Wyatt vs. “Woken” Matt Hardy: “I’d put Bray Wyatt over! He would break the ‘Woken,’ Cena said. “He’d break him in half, the worms would cover him and it’s over. Bury him out back next to Sister Abigail, it’s over, it’s done with. No, I’m sorry, that’s not even fair to Bray Wyatt.”
