WWE Covering For Cena, Ryder’s Frustration, Owen To WWE HoF?, How Much WWE Net Is Worth

There’s some buzz online about John Cena’s involvement with an adult film star as to be the cause of his divorce. It is also said WWE tried to cover it up. Is this true?

Let me start by saying it’s ridiculous that people spend so much time trying to find out who is sleeping with who when it’s really none of their business. I’ll tell you that WWE worked closely with John Cena during his divorce proceedings with Elizabeth Huberdeau as they didn’t want any dirt getting out about the face of the company. There was even a certain Diva that was put on leave while a settlement was reached. The divorce is settled and Cena is a single man, I have no interest in analyzing/investigating infidelity in his failed marriage.

Is Zack Ryder committing career suicide? Complaining constantly on social media can’t be endearing him to WWE management or his fellow superstars…

Zack Ryder is clearly frustrated with his spot in WWE. I don’t know how much attention WWE pays to his disgruntled Tweets but if anything it’s causing a disconnect between Ryder and his fans. While not at the same level, this almost reminds me of Matt Hardy. Hardy built a social media empire but suffered near irrefutable damage with some of the stunts he played (including the bizarre suicide tease). No one is going to feel sorry for Ryder. He’s got to realize that and do whatever he can to get used. If his relationship with WWE ends, he’ll have other opportunities as long as he doesn’t alienate his fan base.

After the induction of Bruno Sammartino, will the induction of Owen Hart now be possible?

The induction of Bruno Sammartino into the WWE Hall of Fame is a further reminder that literally anything can happen in this business. The hang-up on Owen Hart has to do with his widow, Martha Hart, that has fought WWE tooth and nail in court since his death. The fact of the matter is WWE doesn’t want to pay Martha anymore money and it is keeping Owen out of the Hall of Fame. I know many of the boys (including Bret Hart) want Owen inducted.

What do you think WWE could charge per month for the WWE Network?

If WWE includes 11 out of 12 pay-per-views on the WWE Network, I don’t think the proposed $29.99/month fee is unattainable as that is still less than ordering the shows outright. However, it wouldn’t be wise to start there and WWE probably needs to look more in the $16.99 range and increase it over time.

    Hey Richard, would the proposed WWE Network be ppv, specialty programming etc and Raw/SD/etc would on remain on the score (im from Canada) usa network and so forth. Or do they want to put everything on this network?

    • Snap

      I believe there was a post a few days ago which stated WWE wants to maintain their current television deals, but with the network they would have a backup plan in the event they lost one of them like Syfy.

      Don’t worry about WWE on The Score, they have a great relationship and I doubt that would change unless it was WWE who wanted to end the relationship. That would be pretty stupid, however, as they would no longer have national exposure for their product and one of the big reasons they moved from TSN was because they didn’t want their programming to be pre-empted.

      • Frankie

        Awesome, thanks for all the info snap.

  • sir-rusty82

    Trust Loyalty Respect pppffffffffffftttttttttt Lies Cheating Disgrace should be Cenas new theme and I like how you didnt deny it but wouldnt say its true either

    • Chris

      Here’s the thing, nobody gives a damn. For one, if anyone wants someone other than themselves (especially a pro wrestler, who claims to have never touched PED’s, when the history of the business suggests otherwise) to be a role model for their child then that person has no business being a parent. If Cena is off banging $2 hookers while he’s married, it’s none of our business, it’s his life and his choice.

      • sir-rusty82

        I guess you cheat on you dont mind having a girlfriend or boyfriend screwing around behind your back. The fact is he is a house hold name and with that he has a responsibility to practice what he preaches. Hmmm around the sametime as this he was having a fued with Kane and told Eve he wouldnt touch her coz he was affraid he would catch something at the sametime as jumping in bed with a girl that makes a living in having sex with strangers coincidence much???

        • SRP

          They’re acting, you blasted mark.

          • Pluto

            That segment was real you idiot

        • SoulFool

          Money…That’s the Mentality of VKM and his minions !!! The More Powerful and Rich You are…The bigger a pass You get w/ doing whatever you want and making bs , lame excuses !!! It’s the same mentality all these marks have…which is fitting of WWE , cause it’s programming is a giant fantasyland !!! LMAO

        • Chris

          I don’t cheat, and never would, that’s MY morals and MY choice. If he did, that’s HIS morals and HIS choice. What, are you going to harass Morgan Freeman next because he once played the character of God but is a horny old man who hooks up with much younger (and possibly related) women?

          • sir-rusty82

            How am I harassing Cena??? Well if they are your morals why are you sticking up for him let me guess you like liars aswell

          • Chris

            Yep, you nailed it, because I think that people have a right to privacy and should live their own lives and not be forced to live by the morals of another person means that I like liars. Wonderful logic there sir, almost on a Spock level, that REALLY showed me. The fact of the matter is, I can separate real from fantasy, do you think Michell McCool should be brought up on charges for necrophilia since she’s having sex with a “dead man?” That’s ok though, I get it, it’s still real to you dammit.

          • sir-rusty82

            If he wanted privacy in his life he shouldnt be the figure head of a multi billion dollar buisness and if he didnt want the public attention he would live upto the beliefs he preaches, he was screwing around for over a year with possably more than 1 person when he had a wife. I understand you love Cena but he is 100% fake theres not abit about him that is real you do know that right??? Oh and Im only referring to John Cena and this scenerio why are you getting so protective and trying to justify your hero with bringing in all other names

      • Davidh

        Not for nothing but it is a bit hypocritical to walk around preaching
        things like “loyalty and respect” and then go and bang some adult film
        star while married. Yeah, that’s all about loyalty and respect.
        Personally I don’t care what the man does (or who he does for that
        matter) but there is no denying that if Cena was cheating it goes
        against everything that he (and WWE) preaches. And yes, with all of the
        wishes he’s granted for make a wish I think it’s safe to say that there
        are many out there who view Cena as a role model.

  • Jrockk17

    @sirrusty82:disqus You sound like a real douche. Who is to say any of this is true and honestly who cares? Cena is a grown ass man living his life I highly doubt he cares what people of the IWC has to say about HIS personal life.

    • sir-rusty82

      Id rather be a douche than unfaithful to my wife…………. and who cares Id say Vince McMahon does as obviously he didnt want this getting out last year right before Rock vs Cena as Mania isnt it funny how Cenas Ex wife waited until now to say something. This could actually be a miracle in discuise and with this infidelity finally turn Cena heel as this isnt the kind of champion for little kids to look upto

      • sir-rusty82

        nothings worse than a womans scorn I bet Ceanas wife waited until amonth before Mania to get this info out there

      • sir-rusty82

        Dont worry Pluto maybe in 5 or 6 years you might know how to do this trolling thing,trolls are meant to upset people but if calling me a douche is the best you got go get some practise

  • Chris

    On the Ryder thing, you just reminded me of a storyline I would work to elevate Ryder as a heel. You either bring Matt back as a heel and have him turn Ryder against the fans saying how they will do nothing but bring you down, he’s been there and seen what happens. Another idea would be to get Matt to somehow get back in the good graces of the fans through social media and have him come in as a big babyface to team with Ryder and have Ryder turn on him saying how he isn’t going to be a loser like Hardy.

  • Dom

    How about put Zach back together with Curt Hawkins? They would be another team added to the tag team division and he would be somewhat relavent again

  • AntiDiva

    Certain Diva…just say a certain Bella. Because we all know Cena and Nikki are dating now, and were probably having an affair when he was still married…looks like she was taking after her good friend Smelly Kelly!

    • Snap

      He’s talking about Kelly Kelly. She disappeared from TV when the divorce was filed and released later in the fall.

  • John

    The WWE Network will not include any of the big 4 PPVS. That would be a stupid move on WWE’s part, albeit great for fans.

  • Winnipeg

    RISE ABOVE DIVORCE! LoL

    • Pluto

      Your the worst troll ever, Cena is God!

      • Winnipeg

        LoL. What, that was funny

      • Just saying

        WoW!!! You can’t spell worth a damn, & you blow cena!.. That means you’re either 12 or a fat loser of a virgin that still lives with mommy ..
        “TeacH” BITCH

  • Benjamin

    The whole frustrated tweets from Ryder just seems like its all part of an elaborate (or maybe not so elaborate) heel turn

    • David F.

      I hope it leads to a heel turn. Ryder’s character has been stale for long time and a heel turn could be huge for him.

  • SoulFool

    IMHO…It’s not anyones business what someone does in their personnal life , no matter how stomach turning one may find their actions…But hey , There’s a bullseye on the back’s of all famous rock stars , actor’s/actresses , the like and they all know that going in !!! But as a Wrestling Fan myself , not to make excuses for what any of them do , I can stomach Cena more than I can Hogan !!!

  • http://twitter.com/JR_Texx JR Texx (Michael)

    I don’t get why they just don’t alter Ryder’s gimmick, its quite clear thats the thing that is keeping him back at this point

  • If you’re a fan, you’re a mark

    I sure hope parents out there tell their children that John Cena isn’t the person he portrays on TV for sure now. I told my kids that a while back when they asked why John Cena was promoting an anti-bullying campaign but making fun of Vickie Guerrero for being fat.

  • jdl

    $30 for a tv channel? I would hope that’s part of a bundle, as for that price I could add dozens of channels to my cable subscription.

    • Snap

      Maybe it will be a multiplex type of thing, with one channel dedicated to classic programs, another for the current ideas floating around for the network and another for PPV (classic and current) events..Then add in HD feeds and an on demand service and it comes across as a good deal.

      If anything, it HAS to be cheaper per month than ordering the PPVs on their own otherwise there is no incentive for the less than hardcore WWE audience.

  • WrestlingFan4Life

    How much is WWE going to charge per month for the WWE Network? IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH THEY CHARGE!!!!! I, for one, will not pay extra to obtain the channel. I don’t order PPVs now because of the outrageous prices. I am completely satisfied with simply reading the highlights online and watching the clips on MNR and Smackdown. If SyFy channel loses Smackdown, and it moves to the WWE Network, so be it. I’ll just miss Smackdown; it won’t cause me to purchase the WWE Network.

  • WrestlingFan4Life

    As for Cena’s divorce, cudos to you, Richard, for taking the high road and refusing to discuss it. That is part of Cena’s private life, and should remain so. I’ve never understood why “the machine” has to take its stars private lives and make them a story line. Look at what’s happened over the years. The divorce of Randy Savage and Ms. Elizabeth is but one example. I think a star’s private life should remain private. WWE did the right think this time by not allowing Cena’s divorce to become a storyline.

    • sir-rusty82

      Say that to Matt Hardy, Edge and Lita. The fact is that if this wouldnt damage the WWE they would be making money from this instead of covering it up

      • WrestlingFan4Life

        My sincerest apologies for not responding to you sooner, sir-rusty. I just found out that you had posted a response to me. Upon further reflection after having read your response, I must concur with your conclusion: the WWE was not being kind-hearted by keeping the details of Mr. Cena’s divorce as quiet as possible. They were merely performing CYA duties for their own company. If Cena had not been the face of the WWE, his divorce would most likely have been center-stage material.

  • SoulFool

    Who was Cena Tapping ?? Chyna ??

  • SoulFool

    Maybe Hogan/Cena/and X-Pac could make a video together ?!?

  • matthew

    Richard you are right to an extent. It may not be our business what Cena does but as a Christian I know adultery isnt right. Also remember that it could be a PR nightmare for WWE. Some may say any publicity is good publicity but being dragged through the mud cause of a situation like this is anything but ideal.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonmgill2493 Jon Gill

      As a Christian, you know that Christ himself, when a group of people were about to stone an adulteress, said”If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone.” (John 8:7 NIV).

      Judge not, lest ye be judged.

  • Bianca

    The thing is that someone who decides to become a ‘star’ has got to live with everything that comes with it and that includes publicity. If Cena hadn’t wanted for all his affairs to come out, he shouldn’t have screwed around or he shouldn’t have become a ‘star’. Why WNW wouldn’t discuss it is beyond my knowledge since you were also pretty much the first posting pics of him and Nikki. Let’s face it, WWE superstars have no private life and if they wanted one, they should go back to Indy Wrestling.

  • B County

    Will Cena turn heel tomorrow at Elimination Chamber??? I can picture him turning on Ryback and Sheamus and having The Shield win. It may happen and him and Rock at Wrestlemania 29 for the championship!!!

    Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
