John Cena Addresses Allegations Against “Imperfectly Perfect” Vince McMahon

John Cena Vince McMahon

Vince McMahon returned to Raw for the first time since he forced his way back into WWE recently and the person that drew him back to the show happened to be John Cena.

McMahon was believed to be primarily backstage at the show to visit Cena in Boston as the sixteen-time champion of the world appeared on the show to set up a huge WrestleMania match with Austin Theory. Although there have been suggestions that Vince McMahon’s presence could be more than just visiting a friend.

Speaking to AP News, John Cena gave his thoughts about a possible WWE sale and says that when he’s on shows these days, it’s all about Roman Reigns:

“That’s way above my pay grade. I just don’t know what’s going on with that. I love Vince McMahon. He’s everything you could want in a great friend, business partner, father, mentor. I love the man. But his business dealings are his business and what he shares with me, that’s between us.

“But I don’t know what’s going on with the corporate structure in the WWE or the creative direction of the WWE. But when I’m there as a performer, it’s Roman Reigns’ show. In my mind, he needs to be in the conversation, and in my mind, he’s the greatest of all time.”

Cena then was asked if he struggled to reconcile his feeling towards McMahon in light of the sexual misconduct allegations – including rape – that had been levelled at his long-time boss:

“No. I mean, everyone has the right to have their perspective. I have the right to have mine. When you love somebody, you take them as imperfectly perfect as they are. We all make mistakes, we all have poor decisions. Lord knows I’ve made my collection of poor choices. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to love somebody. There’s no way I can go on record and say I don’t love Vince McMahon.”

Vince McMahon had come to a multi-million dollar settlement with former WWE referee Rita Chatterton who accused McMahon of raping her back in the eighties.
