WWE fans are still livid after Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view show.

People in attendance booed mercilessly as Roman Reigns won the event and a spot in the WrestleMania main event match on March 29 against Brock Lesnar, despite the appearance of The Rock, who came out and helped Reigns fend off some heels.

However, that wasn’t in the WWE’s plans, so fans began to cancel their WWE Network subscriptions. As of this writing, #CancelWWENetwork was still trending on Twitter.

In a pretty surprising turn of events Monday morning, the company’s biggest star, John Cena, appeared to acknowledge the fans’ unhappiness via Twitter.

It’s highly unusual that a wrestler would respond about a weak event to unhappy fans. There are a lot of ways this tweet can be interpreted. Was Cena’s tweet a shot at the WWE creative team for their terrible booking? Was it an indirect shot at Roman Reigns, who doesn’t seem to be ready for the big time? Or was Cena just trying to be a fan-friendly guy?
