“It’s OK to hate. Deep down, everybody hates. Why rise above it when the natural impulse is to embrace it?”
For years John Cena has been plagued by the mix reaction from the fans. The women and children of the WWE Universe chant “Let’s Go, Cena!” while the teen-to-adult male portion of the audience chant “Cena, Sucks!” And it didn’t help matters when Cena’s WrestleMania opponent, The Rock, pointed out the fan’s hatred while inside a WWE ring, via satellite, and on social media outlets. We’ve seen Roddy Piper attempt to help Cena see this through, but the Rowdy One in turn slapped Cena’s face for not wanting to be helped. And now for the past three RAWs, we have witnessed Masked Kane dominate John Cena.
Though John Cena has been known to wear his feelings on his sleeve, and slogans on his t-shirts, he doesn’t want to admit his own hatred for the WWE Universe. Sure, John Cena claims that the fans have a right to cheer and boo for whoever they want. But when things get a little too heated for “The CeNation” leader, he immediately brushes it off with a few jokes and ribs on a WWE Superstar with more heat than him (if that’s possible). Piper tried to warn Cena to confront the fans of his feelings towards them. And we get it, John Cena is WWE’s vanilla poster boy: granting wishes at Make-a-Wish Foundation, acting as a spokesperson for Be a Star Anti-Bullying campaign, movies, magazines, etc. It’s hard for him to really let loose in fear of winding up on TMZ and besmirch the company name, but if dominating your opponents in the ring isn’t working, then sounding off could. — Just look at how well it worked for CM Punk.
Enter Kane. The Devil’s Favorite Son talked about how embracing hatred can free you from the facades of this world. Such as it was when The Emperor tried to turn Luke Skywalker over to the Dark Side, Kane attempted the same feat with John Cena. Imagine, instead of being plagued with the cries of “Cena Sucks,” he would embrace it.
Come April 1, 2012, in Miami, Florida, John Cena is heading into the fight of his life with “The Most Electrifying Man in all of Entertainment.” If he doesn’t rectify his feelings, and gain back his concentration, he’s not going to last against The Rock. We’ve already seen how much the audience crippled his confidence at the Survivor Series, will it happen again at WrestleMania?
