A substantial part of the recent Evan Bourne push on Raw can be directly attributed to John Cena. He went to Vince McMahon and told him that WWE was dropping the ball by not pushing Bourne. McMahon evidently paid heed to Cena’s advice. Cena has a lot of pull with management but has not tended to take advantage of it very much at all, unlike Shawn Michaels in the 1990s. Another factor behind Bourne’s push is that WWE is trying to condition the audience to accept smaller guys as main-event stars. This new directive also covers Daniel Bryan being moved to the main roster and Kaval being presented as one of the main acts on season two of NXT.
