WWE: John Cena accused of arrogance by ex-star Lance Storm

WWE's leading superstar John Cena is beloved by most of the WWE Universe, but every now and then even the most popular wrestler in the world comes under scrutiny and criticism.

John Cena's critics usually target the superstar wrestler's current style of character and the fact that some wrestling fans are becoming tired with a somewhat predictable Cena.

Many fans want John Cena to turn heel but that's not what former superstar Lance Storm particularly had in mind when he criticized him on Monday. Rather, Storm took offense to one of Cena's tweets.

Inspiration gone wrong 

The former WWE champion tweeted on Monday what he thought was an innocent tweet. Cena's attempt was clearly to inspire fans across the globe, but Storm didn't take it that way.

Rather than see the obvious pun in John Cena's tweet below, Lance Storm chose to criticize the superstar wrestler in a brutal take down that included Storm's accusation that Cena was being arrogant.

When some fans rushed to the defense of Cena on Twitter, Storm was still having none of it and continued his fierce criticism of the 15-time world champion.

In all fairness this does seem like a bizarre rant from Lance Storm. The former wrestler has obviously got an issue with Cena to respond to such an innocent tweet. Cena is hardly calling out the majority of the WWE Universe for being slackers.

Huge Cena mistake 

But Cena received criticism nonetheless and it's not the first time he has come under fire this year for his Twitter activity. The year may only be young but Cena is making it easier and easier for fans to criticize him. This time it was his inability to stay in character earlier this month which particularly got to a mass amount of WWE fans.

As many will know, Triple H was inducted into the International Hall of Fame earlier this month. But rather than not commenting on the induction, Cena made the rookie mistake of commenting on the breaking news by doing - of all things - congratulating Triple H.

The two superstars have a long running hatred and rivalry that is ongoing and the majority of WWE fans on social media subsequently attacked Cena for breaking character so spectacularly. In this case, Cena was definitely to blame.
