John Cena is well known for being loved and hated in the WWE Universe. People never seem to be on the fence about the guy, although I must confess I am a middle of the road type of fan where he is concerned. I am not a huge fan of his particular skill set in the ring, but I do love other things about John Cena. What I don't understand as a huge fan of professional wrestling, is why so many people despise John Cena so badly. You would think he had played one of the worst heels in professional wrestling history when you talk with some people. Here are three good reasons that the haters need to take a chill pill and give the guy his due:
John Cena helps a ton of people outside of wrestling
John Cena is tireless in his dedication to the WWE Universe, their fans and even those that are not involved at all. His work with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Make a Wish Foundation alone is so voluminous that his sincerity can never be questioned. A genuinely good guy behind the scenes, John Cena deserves our respect if only for this reason. Many people don't make time for such ventures, but John Cena manages it with less time on his schedule than virtually anyone.
John Cena earned his spot
Although Cena was not always a superstar, he refused to give in until he got there. Nobody can say that John Cena has not worked his tail off. John Cena paid his dues and put in the time to be called a champion. Nobody works any harder at backing the WWE Universe than John Cena. Many fault John Cena for his constant winning but that is just silly. His win/loss record is in direct relation to how WWE creative books him. You can't fault a man for accepting success. What was he supposed to do? Refuse to win?
John Cena always gets the biggest pop
When you see the WWE in person, you get a really good idea of just how big this guy is in the world of professional wrestling. John Cena comes out to the largest crowd reaction at every single show he is involved in. There are very few exceptions to this rule and it seems that this won't be changing soon. John Cena is the main event in every sense of the word.
Although John Cena is not at the top of every fan's love list, he certainly should be well respected. The guy does it all and donates his time and resources to make the world a better place. What more could you want from a WWE Superstar?
