HHH does have a good point. Why have a guy two weeks in the fed for no good reason go and slap Vince? We would permanently treat him like we treat Justin Credible: a punk. It would be great if there is backstory; Cena may be monster over if he would say to Vince, "Bret sends you a thank-you note for caring." HHH most likely didn't see any of that written in.
Now Chis Jericho all of a sudden has a hard time beating him. We would regard him as being worse than a punk for not chewing him up and spitting him out. It does no good for anyone. A better idea is to make it personal.
Let Cena get screwed by Vince once or twice before doing that scenario.

I am so glad to see that HHH is looking out for the well-being of the Vince/Hogan angle that's coming up down the road. His concern for something outside of his own personal struggles as a performer really goes to show that he really has the DESIRE and has made the SACRIFICES to make it to where he is today.
This is probably one of HHH's least offensive political moves backstage, but it's still a pretty calculated move on his part. He doesn't want someone getting too much heat off of Vince, because if a new guy comes in and does that right off the bat, it "disrespects" the other main eventers that rarely get the chance to do so. Especially if HHH wants to slap Vince at some point down the road.
But, yeah, I really wish HHH would just stay out of the creative end of WWE. He and Stephanie have really done nothing to help the company.
Cena's getting a pretty big push as it is and rightfully so. Already, the guy has come in and held his own in there with guys like Angle & Jericho and has shown a decent amount of charisma. Hopefully, they get him a character and less generic-looking ring attire shortly. Hell, they should just give him facepaint and lobster tights and call him "Stang." I know I'd cheer for the guy.
The other difference is Jim Ross is very good at his job and Mike Adamle has been very bad. The position he's been put in -- the literal position, out there in the crowd -- is probably the easiest one to get nervous in, though.
