I am not sure I can be inpartial writing about this stuff so I will just let Jim Ross do the talking:
"It is said that WWE Superstar and reigning WWE World Champion John Cena is the most polarizing pro wrestler ... ever. One would have a hard time disputing this description based purely on what is heard when Cena appears on one of the WWE's television broadcasts such as "Monday Night RAW." The opposing chants of "Let's go Cena!" and "Cena Sucks!" resonate loudly and passionately throughout every arena in which the future Hall of Famer performs. Why is it the man who has stood for right and has fought and defeated every "villain" in WWE for the past decade has so many detractors?
Why is it that that the Ironman of WWE, who has likely sold more merchandise than the entire roster combined in recent years, not to mention his amazing and heartfelt work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is vilified primarily by those in the defiant male, 18-34 demographic?
I signed John Cena to a developmental contract to WWE in 2001 and he debuted on the WWE's primary roster in 2002. Upon arriving in Connecticut from California, where I signed Cena, I reported to WWE headquarters fresh off a red-eye flight, I met with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and boldly told him that I'd signed a talent who would be a WrestleMania main eventer within the next five years."
"Is Cena the culprit why WWE can't develop a viable hero or, more importantly, heroes to supplant the 15-time champion who has pulled the wagon for more than a decade? Obviously not, as that burden belongs to the promotion and to a lesser degree to the talents who are put into the position to hopefully become "The Man."
Ironically, Cena is not booed as fervently at non-televised live events as he is on TV, which might indicate that those in the male demo who jeer John on television are doing so because they feel that it's what is expected of them. In other words, some fans seemingly feel that it's become "cool" to boo Cena on TV.
Another point to consider is that many fans still long for the TV-14 Attitude Era of WWE programming instead of today's PG product that WWE produces and that John Cena represents more than any talent on the roster."
