Why Wrestling Fans Boo John Cena

by Brian Phelps

The question that a lot of wrestling fans ask is why do wrestling fans boo John Cena? In this blog post, I aim to outline exactly why fans dislike, despise, and ultimately boo John Cena.

John Cena is literally the "face" of the WWE. He is the biggest star of the current generation of professional wrestling, and one of the biggest baby faces of all-time. He has a chiseled physique, movie star good looks, loads of charisma, and has beaten the biggest stars in the sport. He is also an 11 time World Champion, 3 time United States Champion, 4 time Tag Team Champion, and the 2008 Royal Rumble Winner. He has made as much or more merchandise sales than Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin. His Rap Album debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200. He has starred in several feature films including The Marine, 12 Rounds, and Legendary. He is the the current face of the WWE, inheriting that torch from predecessors such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, and Hulk Hogan who came before him. So, why does arguably the biggest baby face of all-time walk into any arena in the country and get booed by half the fans? Why did fans boo him during his feud with Triple H and cheer for Triple H who was the villain? Why do fans chant "You Suck", "You Can't Wrestle" to John Cena but no one else. It's a question that WWE Executives have never really understood. This response has NEVER happened to any other "face of the company". So why hate John Cena? Here's a list of 10 reasons why.


1) Lack of Moves - People chant "You Can't Wrestle" to John Cena because he has only a handful of moves. Fishermen's Suplex, Five Knuckle Shuffle, Attitude Adjustment, STF, Top Rope Leg Drop are his only real maneuvers. Unless you count a basic clothesline, running shoulder block, or just punching someone... he really has 2 or 3 moves besides his 3 finishers.

2) Lackluster Finishing Moves - The Attitude Adjustment is nothing more than hoisting a guy on your shoulders and just dumping him off. It's not a believable finishing move in the modern era. The Five Knuckle Shuffle is nothing more than a falling punch with a taunt. Then the STF, Cena's submission move is just a poor man's Crippler Crossface.

3) Inability to Sell - His inability to sell moves and get as far as he has in the business astounds me. He never really even looks like he is in pain, he just squeezes his eyes shut... but looks like he is totally faking it. When you're a wrestler, you are supposed to sell beat downs. Cena shows no emotion when he gets beat down. He looks more like he's just tired and squeezing his eyes shut instead of a guy that is supposed to be writhing in pain from a devastating move he just received. Watch a Rock, Hogan, or Shawn Michaels match... and watch how they writhe in pain and sell injuries and moves. Then watch a John Cena match... and how he just squeezes his eyes shut and just looks sort of tired. It's just horrible acting on his part.

4) Ripped Off Character - What ticks fans off about Cena is that his entire persona is just a rip off/hybrid of two old school wrestlers, The Rock and Hulk Hogan and here's how. His take a beating the whole match, and then "magically come back" with 2-3 moves and win is a copy-and-paste of the old Hulkster Match formula. Hulk Hogan would come out and take a beating most of the match, and then "Hulk Up" (magically come back) and hit 2 or 3 moves and win the match. That worked in the '80s because wrestlers didn't have many moves back then, and matches would go 20-30 minutes so fans enjoyed that because it was different. Also, during the Cold War era it was inspiring to see an American beat down only to persevere and come back. Now, it's played out and predictable. It's stale and boring. Even Chavo Guerrero referred to it as "another BS Lazy Comeback".

Then, John Cena's Five Knuckle Shuffle to Attitude Adjustment sequence is a carbon copy of The Rock's People's Elbow to Rock Bottom sequence. So, it just seems like a cheap rehash.

John Cena's catch phrase "You Want Some, Come Get Some" is ripped off of Rick Steiner's "You Want Some, Come Get Some... You Don't Like Me, Bite Me" catch phrase. Also, "You Want Some, Come Get Some" also is essentially the same as saying The Rock's "Just Bring It" catch phrase. In other words, the running theme is that John Cena's persona from Mid 2005-Present is super lazy... and just feels like the WWE cherry picked a couple of things from the Rock and Hulk Hogan that worked  in the past and copy-and-pasted them onto John Cena. In other words, John Cena's persona was milked right out of the unoriginal "Corporate Machine".

5) WWE Forces Him Down Our Throats- From April 2005 to the present (July 2011), John Cena has headlined a staggering 60 PPV Events! (And you could argue a couple more if you include some of the matches that he didn't fight for a title, but had the most hyped about match). People are tired of seeing him fight for the World Title. It's so over done, stale, boring, repetitive, and frustrating. Who wants to order a WWE PPV when the same guy fights for the belt every month? He actually probably would've headlined more had he not had a couple of injuries over the years. It's like listening to a great song every day for 6 years. You start to hate that song. (PPV Results Information gathered from prowrestling.about.com)

6) Promos Are Mind Numbingly Repetitive - He's reached a point now where all his promos sound the same.  It's usually the same "WWE is my life... I defend this belt night in and night out... and you want some, come get some". It usually doesn't vary much from that.

7) John Cena Has to Make Everything About John Cena - He will come out and get involved in things that don't even concern him. After CM Punk got suspended, John Cena came out the next week to "call out" Vince McMahon. He told Vince "What if I speak my mind are you going to suspend me too?" and told Vince if that's how Vince is doing things he wants no part and tried to walk out. Umm.... first, why do you even care? The situation had NOTHING to do with you. How did CM Punk getting suspended end with John Cena calling out Vince McMahon and nearly walking out? Shouldn't CM Punk have called out Vince and walked out? He's as bad as Hogan about taking the spot light from situations that have nothing to do with him.

8) Why do Women and Children Cheer John Cena? Women cheer for John Cena because he has movie star good looks, and a chiseled physique. They cheer for him because he is "hot". Children cheer for him because he is a cut and dry good guy who fights for what is right, and dresses colorful. Kids respond to that.

9) Why Do Men Hate John Cena? Other than all the reasons I have already given, men hate John Cena because he's the star quarterback from your high school who had everything handed to him. He's that guy from your job or your school that does absolutely nothing and gets all the girls because of his movie star good looks. He's that guy from your job that gets the employee of the month award every single month, even though you're better at your job than he is. He's that lazy jock from your school who never had to try to do his school work because his teachers just gave him an A because he's the star of the football team or everyone lets him copy off their work, while you bust your butt studying and get a C. He's that guy from your job that gets all the promotions and accolades even though his work ethic sucks, while you bust your butt and your boss couldn't give a crap less about you. That's what men see when they look at John Cena.

10) "Super Cena" - The Internet Wrestling Community has a term for John Cena. They call him "SuperCena" because he wins 99.9% of the time, and is rarely ever even challenged. Who wants to watch a guy that gets beat down and just comes back and wins every single flipping match? Hit the snooze and let me know when his matches are over because I already know who will win.

11) John Cena Sold Out - What happened to the take no prisoners, battle rapping John Cena? Everyone loved the Doctor of Thug-a-nomics.... but as soon as he became WWE Champion at Wrestlemania 21... he changed. He became a shell of his former self. He quit wearing his hat backwards, quit wearing jerseys, and became the corporate monkey. He turned his hat forward, ditched the jerseys, stopped rapping, and started giving boring cookie cutter promos, and delivering the same lazy BS comeback match every night. He totally sold out when he became the face of the company. Gone is the edgy, gutsy John Cena... and all we're left with is this boring Rock/Hogan hybrid.

    1. I have to agree as well. Although I just recently started watching wrestling again (January 2014 - current), I've only wondered why he gets mixed cheers & jeers from the universe. This really answered my question, and only watching and learning about John Cena, he is a ripoff from my 80's & 90's wrestlers I enjoyed watching. Additionally, I am not hating and how can anyone else when they are only stating facts?

    2. um number one he said he is for children, and being the edgy man who apeals to 18-45 year old generation put him in the position he is right now. Now he is just a freaking back stabbing piece of garbage. He stabbed us in the back and now he is profiting from this backstab.

    3. Very well said cena works hard he is the one who has kept wwe afloat when the tooth-fairy left...
      He works his ass off and u guyz can't get over him simply bcoz u can't get tothe same position as him never ever

    4. ok here's the deal Cena is the only baby face i know that gets booed. he might work his ass off but so does every other person in the locker room there are so many people that are sooo much more talented then him that aren't going to get his push because it all has to be about him. the competition is getting hurt too. when he first debuted his was barely a blip on the radar screen why? because those were the golden years of wwe and he was clearly less talented then most of the guys there they didn't need him. but they all either left wwe, retired, or died so now he's the best they can do. If you ask me there are 4 performers who are good enough for heavy weight main event status CM Punk, Ryback, antonio cesaro, and dolph ziggler though i think he's at about intercontinental

  5. Of course John Cena works his butt off to entertain, but that doesn't mean he's good or fun to watch. Santino works his butt off to entertain too lol. He doesn't win almost every match because he's strong. He wins every match because he's written to win every match.

  8. The main reason people started to boo Cena is NOT because the Rock hates Cena. John Cena has been getting booed for 5 years now. He was getting booed looooong before the Rock came back. The crowd at Wrestlemania 22 booed Cena out of the building 5 years ago chanting "You can't wrestle".

    ReplyDelete
  9. People have right to say what they like and what they don't. Cena is still a frail wrestler no doubt. He was pushed beyond his level when he was not even mature enough in his skill of holding the wwe championship. And he reigned as champion for a year!!! Its really not his gimmick,or he being a poster guy of the PG era, or category of his fan or his looks that actually pisses off the men. I don't want to spend my time and money in a show where real talents are killed. Its fun to watch him but this wasn't what i expected 7 years ago.

  10. the reason people hate cena is because hes way too boring in this day and age. reason number 2 in particular is complete horse crap because i think the AA is a pretty good finisher. the rock bottom isnt very good by your standards and same with the choke slam or the F-5. i could think of tons of moves that probably hurt just as much. thats not the point to a finisher. the AA works just fine. and five knuckle shuffle isnt as bad as the peoples elbow. cena NEVER wins with that but rock wins with the peoples elbow fairly often. john cena is a sign that vince mcmahon is completely out of touch with what people want to see these days. hes not as much a copy of the rock as he is hulk hogan. hes way too much of a goody two shoes. the crowd cant relate to that now, wrestling fans in the 80s were...well naive to wrestling and everything was new to them so it wasnt that hard to get somebody over with them. and wrestling has been around for a long time and there were always plenty of moves even back then, just not in the wwf. john cena has no edge. his matches honestly are pretty good if hes with the right guy. lets be honest about that. hes been in awesome matches. cm punk at MITB HBK at wrestlemania and raw in london just to name some off the top of my head, although hes been in some really bad matches too. it all comes down to his weak character. rock attacked him at survivor series and he just comes out and doesnt seem to mind at all and talks about how he doesnt mind the crowd booing him when he clearly does. he sounds like a battered wife most of the time. theres nothing to him other than be a goody goody. a heel turn is the only thing that can save him but wwe doesnt have the balls to do it. they better because there wont be a wwe if they dont do SOMETHING with his boring character.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Interesting alternative thoughts, in addition to agreeing with some of the points in the post. I agree with the majority of your points. AA is a lousy move. What you have to realize is the F-5 and the choke slam were utilized by Kane and Big Show (Attitude Era stars), and then there's Brock Lesnar who debuted at the tail end of the Attitude Era in 2003. Either way, the F-5 is defendable because of the angle in which the body flies when he does it. The AA is just a poor man's F-5. The choke slam is actually a devastating maneuver for big men. I guarantee you a choke slam would hurt worse than an AA.

  12. what guarantee do we have that cena will not be hated or booed if none of the things in the above list apply to him.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Is the easy route for the WWE to turn him heel and just let the boo's sound better haha! I do kinda respect the guy as it must be hard to come out each week to the boo's!! I think the main problem is that the creative team are afraid to use other ppl in the title picture, either that or Vince doesnt seem to have enough faith in the other guys being able to do it? I look at the Talent coming through now and i do think we have alot coming! Dolph Ziggler i think would be an interesting thought about bringing into it!! I just think they need to show faith in the other wrestlers! We need to go in other Directions other then cena! 60 PPVs is a large number!!! my problem is tho, if we had cena change his ways...... Would they still boo???

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hard to tell. Some people may still boo, just because he's worn out his welcome. Others may cheer him, because evidence suggests we would. We all cheered him before he became all watered down. The main reason we boo him is because his character is so stale and repetitive.

    ReplyDelete
  15. do you think that it may have anything to do with the WWE Creative staff??? I mean the way he hulks up is just annoying... but as i said before, I do genuinely like the guy! and u can see he cares about the business!!! I would love to see him turn heel!! Do you think they could maybe reinvent him with a heel turn??

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like John Cena as a human being. He seems like a nice enough guy. I too agree that he does seem to care about the fans and the business. I think they will reinvent him with a heel turn, but more than likely not until his merchandise sales start to ease up (which may be slowly beginning to happen as CM Punk recently over took John as the top merchandise seller in WWE and younger fans start to grow up)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Once cm punk becomes the official face of the WWE, then it won't be long that we would find him in the same situation where currently Cena is. WWE will push him too. But if the PG era is gone for good, we can at least be hopeful that cm punk won't loose his popularity. Even cena's character may be redefined and he may get back his lost fans. This PG era sucks!!! We want blood because that is what the real wrestling is.

  18. Rock shouldnt have attacked cena at survivor series... Selfish rock. I liked rock but now i like cena.

  19. You shouldnt hate john cena hate the suits that turned him into this they write him in to win every match and they give him his script the make him go out there and steal the spotlight john cena is a big reason why im in OVW Training and i have sat down with him and he has said he doesn't like what they are doing to him but he loves his fans Cm punk said the same thing so dont blame him he is a good guy being put in a messed up situation

  20. they made john cena boring as hell. i still like john cena, i just dont roll wit him no more cuz his character is too much for the kids, what happened to the ruthlessness

  21. you make some good points. I beleive John Cena needs to leave the wwe for a few years to reboot himself but at the same time dont hate on him he's a pretty damn good superstar and by hating that just shows the world's jealousy for nothing.

  23. He doesn't bother me to the point of booing him personally, but I am able to see why people dislike his character. I have no problem with Cena as a human being, but his character stinks.

  24. He is a suck up to the fans and a Hogan wanna be. Not a badass like Steve Austin and Triple H.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cena is my fav character next to HBK. The only thing I don't like is that he has too many title shots. I would like to see a drop kick or two. I understand that the "aa" is a little soft move. He even said it himself that he kinda stole that move from brocks f5. That's when cena named his move the f u. Anyway, there was a lot more people booing him when the rock came back there is no question about that. I would really like to see the WWE be more pg 13 at least. I miss the bra and panties match. I miss the real hardcore matches. I miss the blood. I don't really have a problem with cena the man or character. I hate the writers and the storylines they make. It's too predictable and is need of a change. That is not to make cena heel just do a better job. Something like the triple h being the c o o or whatever. It was new and good. When the rock and cena finish their match they would shake hands and that would get the cheers back or it could be an opportunity for cena to turn heel. But haters are gonna hate.

  27. Cena I admit doesn't have to do much.But Ima antaginize you for a minute. You yall about Cena has certain moves basically 3.But look at the wrestler b4 him that we cheered for....ummm Logan he gets a few shots in gets his ass handed to him in the second half of the match and just b4 its over....he's on his knees and all the sudden hits don't effect him no more.He shakes, he points,the crowds yell youuuuuuuu!!! He throws you to the ropes does a lazy boot your face,lazy leg drop that he's only missed twice in his career.(The Ultimate Warrior,The Rock).He doesn't go off the top ropes.Nothing fancy.Who wants to see flying wrinkles come down on them from the top ropes.So Cena has a bit more then Ol' Yeller.You talk about his good looks.Who was voted sexist wrestler at one time b4 .Cody? The Rock.He probably can't sake movies like the The Rock.But The Marine 2 was horrible. His merchandise sales regardless if he promoted U C/ C Me Condoms.Let Cena have his fans.Guys hate him cuz he ain't him.Remember we cheered Hogan for yrs.And he always won.What the exception of Warrior.And Warrior barley lost either.He had 3 moves too.Run to the ring 1.clotheslined you.2.military press drop.3.jumped on your back and that's it.Cena don't suck.......You Suck.

  28. @ Nawtika

    I'm going disagree with your points and here's why...

    1) Hulk Hogan came from a completely different time period. Hogan began wrestling in the late '70s. Hogan came from a time when wrestling was still considered a sport (before it was outed as being pre-determined in 1982). When Hogan came up no one ever went off the top rope. Wrestler's didn't do a lot of moves because it was still thought to be real back then. John Cena on the other hand, has no excuse. John Cena came up in the 2000s after wrestlers like Bret Hart, Jimmy Snuka, Mr. Perfect, and the WCW cruiserweights revolutionized the business. Hogan and Warrior came from a time when no one had that many moves. The game has changed since they came up. John Cena doesn't even do drop kicks for crying out loud. Cena came from the modern era where a few moves by themselves just don't hack it anymore. You're comparing two different era's entirely. That's like comparing Drew Brees passing numbers to Dan Marino's passing numbers. Drew Brees is about to break the single season passing record held by Dan Marino. The problem is Drew Brees breaking the record isn't as believable because Drew Brees did it in a different era where the rules have changed to make it to where any QB can pass for over 4,000 yards and the elite QB's can pass for over 5,000 on a dime. Marino came from an era where things were a lot different and it was a lot harder to throw for just 3,000 yards. You're comparing apples to oranges dude. You can't compare wrestlers from the '70s/'80s to a wrestler from the 2000s. Different eras. When Hogan came up there was no such thing as a head scissors take down. There was no 619 moves. Back then a DDT was a huge move. A superplex was a huge move. Get the point?

    And, Cody Rhodes getting voted sexiest wrestler was fake. First Cody was voted by the WWE Divas, not the WWE Universe. Second, Cody Rhodes getting voted sexiest wrestler was scripted and not real because that's how he became "Dashing" Cody Rhodes. So I just defeated your point there.

    3) Cena wasn't even in The Marine 2. Ted Dibiase Jr. was.

    4) Guys don't hate Cena because they're not him. Guys dislike Cena because his gimmick is totally fake. First, he claimed to be a thug... which is crap because he's from West Newbury, Massachusetts... not Compton lol. Then, he acts like he is a former Marine, which he never was. John Cena only played a Marine in a movie. Then any one knows that he is bothered by getting booed out of the arena even though he tries to act like he isn't. Is he a thug? Is he a Marine? Make up your mind.

    The fact of the matter is, John Cena's gimmick would've been really popular in the 80s and early 90s, but wrestling fans are too smart today and see right through his gimmick. So, you can't compare us cheering for Hogan's few moves with Cena. Hogan came from a time when no one had a bunch of moves. Hogan came from a time when a sleeper hold was a finishing move.

  30. I don't agree with any of you haters john cena is a good guy he is funny, he is not an "act" do you really think that he wants to do almost everything?..... probably not. WWE is amazing and entertaining and he doesn't make it boring, and he doesn't "suck up" to anyone. I think he is pretty good and so what if he doesn't have as many moves as other people on WWE so yea don't be a hater like really people get a life stop hating some wrestler who you don't even know like haven't you heard of the saying don't judge a book by it's cover?.... its the same damn thing don't judge someone by there job like seriously i will say it again 'GET A LIFE' and don't be haten on people you don't know its not cool and actually its pretty lame if you ask me or anyone.... so if you can't man up and say it to his face eye ta eye then maybe you know that you should just let it go and yes it's fine to think it in your head or tell people you dislike him but you can't say you 'hate' him when you don't even know him.... he could be a great guy so all i have to say is don't judge or say you hate him cause you can't hate him when YOU DON'T KNOW HIM

  32. I think the main reason that everyone hates John Cena ,is that people are jealous .Let's be real fans who would not want John cena life style .As far as his wrestling moves I agree they need work ,but then again who does,not need to improve.CM.Punk what the big deal about him a skinny Little punk that does not look like he can pick up anybody. Without John cena the ratings would go down remember when the rock left .The ratings when down John cena saved the day.Now people can realize that all the wrestlers bring something different to the table.Wrestling is for entertainment I hate to tell u this but the fans are mostly kids anyway .So u adults that are hateing on Cena,grow up change your wrestling underwear and let the kids pick out there own heros.My peace has been said ,but keep this in mind,I don't see punk,undertaker,or cane visiting are soldiers ,or giving back to the kids .

  33. Nobody hates Cena cause they are "jealous", "haters" or "cool". We're just fed up of his boring ass character. It's been the same since 2006 and people want a change.

    I respect Cena the person but I DESPISE his character. It's the same old shit every week. "I am who I am, if you like me, great, if you don't, okay. You have paid to be here so you have the right to cheer or boo me. I bust my ass every week for you people and without you, WWE wouldn't be what it is."

    He's an annoying suck up with lazy comebacks in his matches and predictability beyond words.

  34. Reason I'm not a fan of Cena anymore is the way they have his character set up these days. I was a huge fan of cena some 5 years ago. Like when he won the US championship for the first time and all that. I liked him when he won his first wwe title too, but just after a while like other people said, his gimmick just got stale.

  36. WWE has gone down hill & Cena is Overused! They had to create a storyline based on the boos Cena was gettin for being who was as the babyface, So they bring in Kane sayin embrace the hate with Cena sayin Haterz gonna Hate while the crowds are still booing & chuckin his shirts back in the ring cauz that bitch is CORNY lmao, Knowin the WWE as I do lol its probably gonna down lyk this !! Cena vs The Rock icon vs icon, Cena wins lyk the rock did against hogan earnin The Rocks respect (cauz the rock has been known for pushin carreers back on the map)!! Or cena wins by cheating beggining the New era with Cena as a Heel!!He has a real chance to become the most hated heel of all time, think about it!! Rocks heel was badass triple H went into his prime, Hogan shocked everyone when he joined the NWO, Undertakers Ministry, Austins Invasion, lol & 2 words vince mcmahon !! Haha Oi btw I lyk cena as the man, just not as his character ppl!!!!

  38. The WWE have created a character that the crowd is completely cut down the middle with. Why would they want to change it, its an incredible achievement. It's easy to make a crowd hate a character, it isn't much harder to make a crowd love a character, but to make the crowd do both at the same time??? I wouldn't have said it was possible if i hadn't witnessed it myself.

  39. WWE is desperate for a new face their trying wit punk but i dont think they gotten there yet. after orton got pop from crowds they immediately made him the face of smackdown which i think was really unfair to christian(smh) they shud have kept heel rko feuding wit fruity pebbles the top heel vs top face wud have bought more time to worry about other storylines no? rko vs cena wud have always made the main even like rock vs austin

  40. You are absolutely 100% correct in your analysis of john cena and why he is booed by the crowd.There is one more point i would like to add.If you look at the greatest wrestlers over the last two decades namely hhh,the undertakes,shawn michaels,bret hart,ric flair,mic foley,stone cold steve austin you will notice two things about them.They had excellent wrestling skills and they could take a hell of a beating.Cena can do neither of these things.He is not even 1/10th as good as they were in the ring.In addiotn to this the other wrestlers earned their place in the company.Cena was handed the top spot on a silver platter.
    The only reason people cheer for this idiot is because they have not seen the technical provace of bret hart or they have not witnessed foley getting thrown off a 15 foot steel cage.They have not seen matches like the hell in a cell match between the undertaker and shawn michaels.Can you imagine cena falling off a 15 foot cage.He could'nt do that in a million years.
    At the end of the day he is a wrestler,but sadly he does'nt know the fundamentals of wrestling.In addition he rarely every looses and its his opponents who get beaten up.In his match against kane he was not the one who got thrown off an ambulance.Kane took that bump.In his match against batista it was batista who got thrown through the stage.Cena would never agree to go through that.His opponents try their best to make his match look good.

    1. "Cena was handed the top spot on a silver platter"-best line. So he can stfu wit his i worked hard to get where i am bs. Too bad we can see it but the kids cant john cena is an embarrassment with no talent and 100% does not deserve the spot that hes in.

  41. I think all of you should get a life and stop judging John zena the rock does the same moves too and he does not get booed. Just because hes a movie star.big deal.

  42. so basically u want us to hate john cena just becoz he win all the matches(almost), he is wcw champion for record 11 times, kids like him, + he never have been thrown off a 15 foot steel cage. that's pretty impressive .guess what! u su**. u boo him only becoz u never in ur dream can be like him. u r just so jealous becoz it ur character which does't resembles him (hustle loyality respect).it may be true that he repetitive he is predictable but at least don't give credit of his match to his opponent.things were not plattered for cena in silver, he has worked hard,shown the courage to fight against any one and win it and if he loses,he atleast show respect to his opponent(if he was defeated fairly). Not chanting like other for a rematch and giving excuses.u anme any other wwe wrestler like him of this era. now it's ur time to rise above hate.

  43. Even though others may hate Cena, I don't. He's the best one to me, not because of looks or colors, but because he "Rises Above Hate". He also has had a challenge, duh it's called The Rock. The Rock even won, Cena doesn't win all the time, and he has had many other challenges. He's different from everyone else, and he rapped at the Rock! Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect. He simply does what the shirt says. Stop hating Cena, Rise Above Hate.

  47. Yes...Really John Cena is purely just taking other peoples spotlit just because some kids like him, there really are more talented wrestlers out there like Low Ki(a.k.a Kaval if anyone's not sure), Tyson Kidd, John Morrison, Dolph Ziggler and etc. ,-sigh-... WWE should really just get him off the maincards for abit and let some of the newer talents to have a chance to shine in the spotlit instead of John Cena...

  51. John Cena is very good at what he is the Baby Face. He is a very good wrestler with the strength to pull his finisher off against the biggest opponents ie Big Show. Not many superstars have that kind of strength. CM Punk although is a good superstar however there are several superstars that he cant even do his finishing move too, that to me is kind of sad. Cena is easily in the top 3 on the mic of the current stars. What I think the WWE lacks now is true characters. There are too many wrestlers who are just guys, John Cena, Dolph Ziigler, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan, the list goes on and on. What made wrestling great in the 90's was the characters The Rock, The Undertaker, Kane, The game, they all had gimmicks and stories now it just seems like they are all just guys who wrestle. Wrestling was the best during the attitude era in my opinion but until the WWE decides to get away from the PG era it will be a watered down form of what it once was.

  52. In some ways this article is very true, saying that he only has a few moves under his belt and they are all plain and simple, but the truth is he does win the majority of his matches. One he probably does work his butt off just to be that good. Okay so I am not too bothered on Cena being the face of the WWE, but now CM PUNK is getting a lot better, i'm not sure how many matches he has lost but he promotes himself to be the best, like most of the WWE stars. Just because he is a bit of 'jerk' shows thats he brings attention to himself, this is basically what increases his popularity. Whereas Cena already has the popularity.

  55. Pro wrestling is about entertainment, and that....Cena is not. I do respect Cena but being a nice guy shouldn't be what gives me accolades for my career.

  56. Professional Wrestling in general is just a shell of it's former self. The fans themselves do not even seem as enthused to be at an event. I remember watching the Rock, Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan growing up. All of their personas were over the top and now there is no over the top personas because the management can't get them there.

  58. Hater john cena is awesome kids sell but above all that he fights for what he believes in forget the fact about rapping i hated that shit he has so much passion for the armed forces and also the wwe its sad how sum of the fans turned there back on him. What wrestler can any of you haters name that haven't had a persona and changed it how many were hated because of lack of moves or there good looks miss me with that John Cena is a good wrestler and a great face to use for wwe what people fail to realize is change comes with the era watch some old wrestling tapes and check yaself LETS GO CENA

  59. I like Cena as a Person, However I don't like the character/gimmick/wrestler WWE has him portraying since Post WM 21

  60. Cena sucks because he beats EVERYBODY!!! His win-loss record has to be the best of all time. The only time you see him down on the mat is during a post-match or random attack. He's beaten guys like Great Khali before WWE gave up on him, The Big Show, Ryback and most recently, making Mark Henry TAP OUT! If he beats these guys, how will he have any credibility dropping the belt to a Daniel Bryan? He's hated because it's a random opponent to challenge him, there's no storyline just a 4-week build-up for him to win at the PPV and bury the other guy. What they did with him and Mark Henry is the perfect example about why Cena sucks. And it doesn't help that the guys at ringside treat the fact that he's getting booed to the fact that he's "polarizing" and that he's so smug about it. Add those to the list.

    1. And Cena does NOT fight for what believes in, he sells that to people as if we're supposed to think he's not completely into his own celebrity. I made the mistake of watching 10 minutes of Total Divas only to find out that Cena is a bigger tool in real life than I imagined.

  61. Its all staged . Not his fault that's the part they gave him. Unlike other wrestlers they switch from bad to good to when fans. When they get the belt they go back bad. Next thing you know they trying to be good again. At least John Cena stay true to the WWE universe and not 2 faced. Ahaa. Y'all haters
