"Happy 2012! My name is John Cena and I will never change whether you want me to or not! The WWE's product is what we want it to be, not you, the fans!"
The above statement sums up what I heard in the opening segment from John Cena.
I have been fairly consistent saying I would rather Cena take a break than have him turn heel, but there comes a point where SOMETHING just needs to happen. His character is so predictable that you could mute the TV and still know every sentence he is going to spew into the microphone.
The “face” of the WWE is coming out to hostile crowds and telling them that the WWE does not care what you think, because he will never change. When Cena does his speeches about fan reactions, he is letting them know that their voices are heard but will not be listened to.
In other words: this is the product, so love it or leave it.
I just cannot comprehend why Monday Night Raw continues to center around John Cena even when he does not have the title. How can anyone, especially the current champion, attempt to carry the company when the writers are still obsessed with Cena?
I do not hate John Cena but I do hate the fact that he is constantly booked to be in the spotlight regardless of what he is doing.
I am waiting for them to end the show on John Cena tying his shoes because right now everything that man does is booked to be more important than anything else going on. He is completely overshadowing everything to a fault.
The WWE left Cena off their last pay-per-view and I commend them for giving Cena a break but a few weeks later he is beginning and ending Raw and CM Punk, the WWE Champion, is wrestling in the middle of the card.
Is this “feud” with Kane really that much more important that the WWE title? If so, get rid of all of the titles and rename Raw to “The John Cena Variety Hour” because it is clear to me that everything else is secondary to John Cena.
The fans are not demanding that Cena be at the forefront of EVERY major storyline either. Cena is being booked this way because this is the direction the WWE wants to go.
What do you guys think? Are you still demanding John Cena be at the center of the WWE or is the WWE trying to keep Cena relevant?
