Long-time WWE superstar John Cena has become one of the more lovable celebrities of his era. Cena has been known for having great working relationships with much of his fellow wrestlers, plus other WWE officials. Throw in all the charity works this guy does, and it’s hard to envision Cena being disrespectful to any of his coworkers.
Former WWE writer Tom Casiello recently appeared on The Agenda Podcast, and talked about how a number of wrestlers refused to “learn his name.” He then went into detail about his first encounter with Cena:
“He shook my hand and he said, ‘I’m not gonna learn your name. You’re not going to be here next week. I love John. He wasn’t saying it to be a di*k. He was saying it because it was probably true. I wasn’t cut from the same cloth as these guys. I came from a much more, calmer world than WWE.”
That certainly doesn’t sound like the Cena that we’ve come to love both on-screen and in the real world, but Casiello apparently had the misfortunes of seeing the 16-time World Champion’s bad side.
Casiello was hired by the WWE in 2011 as an Emmy-Award winner who worked on major shows like The Young and The Restless and Days of Our Lives. He was fired by the WWE in 2016, though reasons why weren’t specified.
Considering how many questionable storylines the creative team put together in 2017, it’s safe to say Casiello’s firing looks a lot worse for the company. He was credited by many for his work in bringing the women’s division to greater heights, though it apparently wasn’t enough to keep him safe.
WWE recently announced they were accepting applications for creative team writers, which means Vince McMahon and co. are really looking at more shake-ups. So if you think you can out-do Casiello and make the creative team great again, why not apply?
