|John Cena competing at Wrestlemania 29 with food poisoning|
We may get crap for this post, hell some people may unsubscribe, unfollow, unlike or just write us off in general. The people who do that after this article are going to be the know it alls who read the dirt sheets and listen to everything the online world of wrestling tells them too. I have prided myself as well as this website I have built on solely articles based on the wrestling shows and wrestlers we know and love. I will never post dirt and I will never endorse it. The closest I will come is the occasional retweet. I refuse to broadcast dirt to the world and look like the idiot when it is untrue.
Let's Go Cena! Cena Sucks!
How many times have you heard that chant? How many times has John Cena come out to the ring to an array of boo's from the WWE Universe? How many times have the fans given the man appreciation for ten plus years of hard work and dedication? Instead of praising him for what he has done for the company, the Universe nitpicks at little things and find ways to not like him because the internet says so. Well here is the internet saying something completely opposite for once.
Let's flash back to 2002 when some no name guy in vibrant wrestling trunks made his debut against Kurt Angle. The buzz was "Who is this guy!? He's good!" I remember the match perfectly. It was someone who could relatively match Kurt Angle in size and had wrestling skill to back it up. Who would have known that the guy in the ring with Angle would be the next big thing. He became the rapper we knew as the Doctor of Thuganomics and the fans ate it up. Feuds with Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Angle, Guerrero, Jericho and a ton more. He was crude and loud and didn't care what he was saying because his smashmouth style backed it up. Now lets flash back to 2013. Wrestlemania 29.
MKWB was in attendance for all the WWE Events in NYC and New Jersey last week for Wrestlemania 29. We decided to go forth with a little experiment. All it required was John Cena t-shirts. Now I have been a wrestling fan for 20 years, and the lack of respect I received just for wearing a John Cena shirt was ridiculous. The amount of times I was called a "Mark" or got "CENA SUCKS" yelled in my face made me rethink even wanting anything to do with writing for these ignorant "fans." The thing that got me the most was every single person I asked why Cena sucks, couldn't come up with a valid response. Let's go through the responses right now.
1. Cena was jammed down our throats - Was he now? So the birth of a new superstar is placed in the main spotlight of every show because the ratings are up because of him and so is merchandise. Yeah that would be a horrible thing to have a new star main event and be in the spot light. Keep in mind these are the same people that cheered on Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan or how about the little guy from the Nation of Domination we know as The Rock?
2. He has only five moves - The Cena five moves of doom. The Shoulder Block, The Scoop Slam, The Five Knuckle Shuffle, The Leg Drop, The Attitude Adjustment. Okay good set up moves. What about the Lou Thesz Press, The Mudhole Stomp, and The Stunner. That's only three. What about Old School, The Last Ride, The running DDT, Choke Slam and Tombstone. What about The Peoples Elbow, The Spine Buster, The Snap DDT and The Rock Bottom. Show me where John Cena's Five Moves of Doom is such a bad thing to have. It's an identity, get over it.
3. He just does - Yup got this response a lot. Why does Cena Suck? "He just does." When I got this response I couldn't help but just laugh in the persons face who said that.
So whether you are too cool to like John Cena because of one of the reasons above or you can actually think of a good reason, just remember YOU CHOSE HIM TO BE IN THIS SPOTLIGHT. You YOUUUUUUUU The fans made him the star that he is. So if you want to boo anyone boo yourself because you were the ones cheering him on. You will also be the ones that will miss him when he finally calls it quits and cheer him when he returns in the likes of HBK. You will clap when he gets inducted in to the Hall of Fame and will beg him for "One More Match."
The best part of the weekend was after Mania when we walked back to the IZOD Center from Metlife and asked a group of guys where the bus was coming to pick us up. Instead of answering we got "Not gonna tell some Cena fans." We were told that we listen to anything the WWE tells us to do and are spoon fed by Vince McMahon. Okay well i'm sorry guys but you came all the way from England to Wrestlemania, and we are the spoon fed ones. Gotcha. The best part was when they said "Ask your hero John Cena where the bus is." My Hero John Cena. That was a good one guys!
Now as far as calling me a "Mark," not sure what you mean by that. I know what a mark is because I have "Marked" before. Just remember you didn't create that word and you read it online, like heel and face and kayfabe. You aren't backstage you don't know what goes on there so stop pretending you do just because you read the dirt. I will say proudly that I support John Cena in everything he has done and continues to do. He deserves to be the WWE Champion. He did not hold that title for over a year and look who did, CM Punk. CM Punk's stardom grew even bigger and you cheer him on night after night. Punk is an amazing wrestler and has the mic skills of a saint, but you have to credit Cena somewhere in there for stepping back and letting him take the stage while he helped put over new comers. Unlike that guy "The Rock" you all cheer on that doesn't even show up when he's WWE Champion, John Cena has barely missed a show in his 10 plus years.Wwe John Cena Tee - Boys 8-20 (Google Affiliate Ad)
So before you boo Cena next time, the fact of the matter is you chose him and you made him. You continue to make him and you will continue to eat up every word he says. You are in the palm of his hand every time he speaks. Check the video out from After Raw on April 8th when he addressed the crowd. It was fun to see all the Cena haters around me quickly turn in to.... well "Marks." So go ahead, continue to boo him and be a wrestling Hipster, but just know that he won't turn heel and just because you boo him doesn't mean he's going anywhere. If you have a valid reason to hate John Cena or think that he sucks, the comment box is below. Please light it up.WWe Vintage Legends Tee (Google Affiliate Ad)
