Makes you respect guys like The Rock, Jericho, and Taker even more when you hear about the rest of the top stars being a bunch of jackasses. It's already been proven that you can be a top star without being a prick (ala the previously mentioned), I don't get why the rest of these guys won't realize that.
What evidence is there really out there that Cena really held down any of these people? Other then there word which is tainted with personal bias against him by a bitter ex-employee.
Those guys were never going to become stars anyway and you want to know why? Because they were all buy products of todays fucked up corporate era in the WWE. None of them really learned the business the right way and they paid the price for it.
Wade Barrett is one of the only guys the WWE has really fucked up on as far as pushes goes.I'll give you that.
How is he bitter? He left on his own terms. He was getting time on SmackDown and featured as a tag team with Hawkins. He left because he wanted to spend more time with his family. That's not called bitterness. That's called leaving on his own merit. He WANTED to be released. If he was bitter, he would've told this shit as soon as he was released from the WWE, because you wanna get that shit right out of you as soon as you possibly can if it was THAT important for him to tell the world to. Also, when 5 different people are saying Cena does this type of shit, then he probably does.
I'm not even going to answer the second paragraph, because I already have, and for whatever reason, you cannot get what I have told you several times through your head. What does them being "buy products of today's fucked up corporate era" have to do with anything? That's called changing the subject to move around ideas so much so that you can seem like you have the upper hand. And I've already told you, they could've become jobbers, or become huge stars. We'll never know. Still doesn't make it right for Cena to push them down.
Carlito - Garnered a reputation for being lazy and unmotivated. Seemed to be happy with remaining a midcarder for life instead of getting the push to the top that many thought he would have.
Dudley Boys - True, they have done fine as singles competitors in TNA [Especially Bubba]. However, they had always been tag teamers and, often times, many tag teamers that go single fail miserably so nothing new.
John Morrison - Achieved about all he was worth. Had little charisma and almost no mic skill abilities. Hardly dropped the bill.
Mark Jindrak - Can't remember him enough now to care or recall his potential.
Matt Morgan - In-Ring skills were not that great and his mic skills/charisma were also lacking.
Nick Dinsmore - True, he was definitely wasted.
WGTT - Both lacked charisma to be main eventers although they could have stayed as midcard talent and prospered.
Umaga - Come now, the reason he was depushed and eventually released in the first place is because he had a major drug dependence and refused to go to rehab. Hardly wasted, got a bigger push than almost any other talent not named Orton or Cena during the height of that gimmick.
Hey I'd gladly take these guys over today's FCW clones any day of the week.

Not really. Taker buried punk in 09 over a petty backstage dress code thing, buried DDP and Chris Kanyon in 01. Jericho was never a top star with political pull he's been a underdog himself all his career. While the Rock may not have "held down talent" per say, he had it easy from the start(much like the undertaker) when others had to scratch and claw to earn it. Rocky Maivia politicked his way into the company and a healthy early push due to his family ties. Not to mention the Rock rose to super-stardom in a short period and quickly left once the wrestling industry entered a down period. Maybe if he had stayed, things would have been different today.
