John Cena participated in a question-and-answer session in Australia , where fans approached the wrestler for all sorts of questions, one especially uncomfortable to WWE’s face, as he wanted to know more details about a sensitive topic in the promotion American.
What a particular fan asked John Cena why WWE does not recognize the fighting achievements of Chris Benoit , who since his suicide in 2007 as a result of his crime was no longer mentioned by the company.
“Question very difficult to answer, but I will do it this way. Sometimes, we hook a person for their athletic skills and demonstrations – and this transcends the WWE – which is a problem in the sport. It is also a problem for entertainment. People do bad things, but if they are good at what they do, those things are ignored.
I do not think that, I think you have to take responsibility for your actions. Absolutely all, not only those that are seen by an audience, I think our company took a stance that set a precedent both in sports and entertainment, to start taking charges for our actions.
