This week’s Dark Side of the Ring episode covers the life of former WWE and WCW star Chris Kanyon. During the episode, a clip was shown from a John Cena interview with Howard Stern where Cena said that Kanyon “wasn’t any good” as a wrestler.
Cena’s name ended up trending on Twitter with some fans making an attempt to “cancel” him. The effort seemingly backfired with many of the top tweets being in support of Cena…
Reminder: For years, McMahon family and #WWE used John Cena as their mouthpiece against any outside "enemies." But Cena has supported #LGBTQ rights and talked about his older brother's homosexuality. #Kanyon pic.twitter.com/LloGy7rKy7

If y’all gonna cancel John Cena for that and try to flip into “he said he’s a bad wrestler because he’s gay!” at least look into him and how much he supports the LGBTQ+ community. pic.twitter.com/fmoZE07Fpf

So correct me if I’m mistaken, but John Cena is getting “cancelled” for saying someone isn’t good at wrestling ?
Please tell me how that’s cancel worthy when y’all call wrestlers mid 24/7 ? Should y’all be cancelled too ?

WWE fans have shouted “I hope you burn in hell!” to John Cena at live wrestling shows to his face and those same fans are the ones trying to cancel him for saying Chris Kanyon “Wasn’t good.” You guys have tagged wrestlers in tweets saying worse than what John did. Sit down. pic.twitter.com/8DioaeZ6OD
