John Cena is against WWE using former Superstars for ratings

WWE has a tendency of using former champions and Megastars to boost their ratings. Considering how 2020 went, the company needed the fans to come to the arena after it was allowed.

In order to ensure that the fans actually came to the arena for live shows, WWE brought back not one but two Megastars in 2021 – John Cena and Brock Lesnar.

Next, the company booked both of them against Roman Reigns and booked the matches for SummerSlam 2021 and Crown Jewel 2021.

However, The Champ believes that the company shouldn’t rely only on megastars for their ratings. It’s important to branch out and create new megastars who will pull the company forward.

Unfortunately, Vince McMahon is rather reluctant in creating new stars. Instead, he keeps bringing back former Superstars who truly connected with the audience. In fact, even now, there are rumours that Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock will make an appearance during Survivor Series.

This may be true, or could just be rumours. However, even then, WWE is using a former Champion’s name to ensure their ratings take flight.

It’s possible the company could truly benefit by investing in pro-wrestlers instead of releasing them from their contract.
