I know how much all of us are getting fed up with WWE over hyping John Cena so much, as if he was the next Hulk Hogan, but the WWE is not going to stop. They will keep giving him so much screen time. Hogging all the main events, and getting all the Wrestlemania spotlights, you get the deal. This is why the WWE will never bring back the Attitude Era. I know us longtime fans want the Attitude Era back, but the popularity of John Cena, the PG era will be around for a long time. Here’s why…
…simply put, John Cena is a powerhouse when it comes to helping marketing the WWE. The Make-A-Wish-Foundation, Fruity Pebbles, etc. Things like that. Even though the ratings are really bad for the PG era, the PG rating stays ’cause of Cena. Cena is only popular with women and children. Not too many men like Cena too much, as he gets a lot of boos at the live shows from the male fans and Cena has his share of haters online.
This is part of why I almost gave up watching WWE several times ’cause like most everyone, I too am sick of Cena. Cena is also never gonna turn heel even though a lot of us would want him to. Even though, I’m not much of a Cena fan, I want to see him turn heel ’cause that would make an interesting storyline. They wouldn’t turn Cena heel ’cause the WWE are afraid to lose their sponsors that he’s good at marketing for, and of course, they don’t want the children to get turned off by him. Cena started off as a heel earlier in his career when he was younger.
I’ll admit it, that Cena had quite a few amazing matches in his career, and you can’t deny that he’s a hard worker, I just think he’s very annoying. I think rap gimmicks in wrestling is awful to begin with. If Cena never had the rap gimmick that he has had for years, then he wouldn’t have gotten this big now. He’s not the next Hulk Hogan, guys. Yes, the Rock will probably keep the title and Cena will probably end up taking it from him at ‘Mania. I don’t even know if I want to watch Wrestlemania this year.
If the Undertaker doesn’t have a match at this year’s ‘Mania, then I wouldn’t even bother. I love Undertaker matches at ‘Mania ’cause they make it worth watching, his undefeated ‘Mania streak.
Back to John Cena, I don’t really hate the guy, honestly, but I just want the WWE to cut him some slack. There are plenty of other talented performers who deserve the same spotlight Cena is getting, like Ryback for example. I think Ryback is the best new performer we have today. Ryback is a great character and I think he’s going to be a big icon down the road, for sure.
John Cena is a pretty young guy, he’s just about my age, actually, lol. Cena will probably be around WWE for a long time. The only time if he’ll get forced to retire if he gets injured for real that prevents him from wrestling. Yes, wrestling maybe fake and scripted, but serious injuries do happen for real in wrestling. I’m not saying that I want Cena to get injured badly so he can be gone, just sayin’. Edge, was forced to retire at a young age ’cause of an injury and he can’t wrestle anymore ’cause of it.
I’m probably gonna watch RAW tonight, to see what’s gonna happen after the Rumble. I want to see Jericho ’cause he’ll be on tonight, I think. I also want to see CM Punk’s reaction now that he finally lost the belt. I’m sure Punk will deliver an amazing speech. I like CM Punk. He’s an amazing performer who I’ve admired for years. A lot of people hate Punk ’cause of his “Respect me, best in the world” stuff, but come on, it’s just a scripted wrestling show. I never take it seriously. On top of that, the bad guys (heels) are more interesting performers to begin with.
