John Cena Comments On Vince McMahon Allegations, 'I'm Going To Love The Person I Love'

John Cena comments on Vince McMahon allegations.

Being the face of the company for over a decade, John Cena worked closely with Vince McMahon and maintained a relationship with him outside of the company. Cena has often praised McMahon for his contributions to wrestling, saying he would make Vince the lone person on the Mount Rushmore of Wrestling.

In January, former WWE employee Janel Grant filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon and WWE, accusing McMahon of sexual assault, emotional abuse, and sex trafficking.

Appearing on the Howard Stern Show, Cena was asked about the allegations against Vince and how Cena handles them. Stern called the allegations "hot water."

"I don't think it's complicated to talk about. It's complicated to listen to. That's why I don't necessarily put a lot of time and equity into it. There’s still a long way to go. I can say this, I’m a big advocate of love and friendship and honesty, and communication, in the same breath, I’m also a big advocate of accountability. If someone's behavior lies so far outside of your value system that the balance shifts of, 'I can't operate in a world where this works.' That's the end result of being accountable. Right now, I’m gonna love the person I love, be their friend. 'I love you, you have a hill to climb.' There is the saying of, 'You don’t know who your friends are until shit hits the fan or your back is against the wall.' That doesn't make any of what's going on any easier to swallow. Just telling someone you love them, it’s a hill to climb, and we’ll see what happens.' That's that. It sounds so cliche, but it has to be one day at a time. I've openly said, I love the guy, I have a great relationship with the guy, and that’s that. It's largely my construct of operating with honesty and communication. Those are strong leads to handling any problem or achievement. The whole thing is super unfortunate and it sucks. It deals with an individual I love and an entity I love. I want everyone to have the experience that I have," said Cena. "Not only do I tell a friend that I love them, but I switch to the entity and say, 'How can I help?'"

When allegations of hush money and sexual misconduct against McMahon came to light in June 2022, Cena said that when you love somebody, you take their imperfections. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
