John Cena Sr. spoke about WWE’s biggest mistake with Roman Reigns

The audience never liked Roman Reigns before his makeover in 2020. According to Cena Sr., WWE’s biggest mistake was to make Reigns the next “John Cena,” especially when the viewers resisted Reigns for so many years.

“The mistake they made with Roman was, ‘You don’t like roast beef, but I’m gonna shove it down your throat anyway.’ What they should have done is kept him in a tweener role, where he could be either a nice guy or SOB depending on the day.”

However, Cena Sr. believes that even though Roman Reigns is one of the top wrestlers, he will never be the “face” of the company. The sports entertainment business grew a lot and won’t allow the “face culture” anymore.

“It’s not going to happen because of the way the business has evolved. I repeat, nobody will ever carry that company again for the length of time that some of these past Superstars did,” he said while adding that his son, John Cena, was the last true face of the WWE.
