  • The most overrated wrestler ever. This is a review of his wrestling character, not himself personally.

    What can I say about John Cena? He's the most overrated wrestler in WWE. The reasons why Vince overuses him is because of the following: He makes money, his fanbase is the biggest in WWE, the kids love him so Vince wants WWE to be more kid-friendly and his merchandise. Every week, John Cena has to appear on RAW and Vince fixes the matches so John wins them all of the time to try the crowd happy. Of course we all know that WWE is fake, it's not real wrestling. If it were real wrestling, John Cena would get thrashed in the ring. John can never compare to great wrestlers such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Undertaker, Triple H, Owen Hart and many more. When John wrestles, he uses the same old moves over and over again. It gets boring once you know all of them. I admit that I am Anti-Cena, but I'm not trying to be offensive to him or anything of that matter. For more details, read my rant on John Cena. So whatever happens, If you get upset at John Cena, just turn off the TV.moreless

    One of the most overrated pieces of garbage that is on my television, every Monday Night. Let's look at the facts about John Cena...

    - He can't wrestle

    - He's getting a push he doesn't deserve

    - He's average on the mic

    - He's held the title for the majority of the past two years

    - His head looks like a cereal box

    - His so called Chain Gang fans are a bunch of sheep who don't know good wrestling if it hit them in the rear

    - He's repetitive

    - His STFU subsmission is by far one of the worst subsmissions I have ever seen

    - His Superman Marine gimmick is far beyong stale

    So while great talent like Shelton Benjamin, Shawn Michales, and even Triple H are forced to job to a piece of crap like Cena, Cena gets all the limelight because sheep are attracted to him. PATHETIC!moreless
