I said a long time ago that I will never say a bad word about John Cena. While others are wishing harm on the man or begging for the 56,397th time for him to turn heel, I am doing none of that.
The man can do whatever he wants, as far as I am concerned. When he retires, a lot of fans are going to truly realize what he meant to this business. If Cena wants/needs time off, he has more than earned it.
As for his main event match against Brock Lesnar, it went just as most expected. The former UFC Champion dominated Cena for 95 percent of the match and looked like a monster.
In their 17-minute match, Lesnar was on the offense for about 16 of those minutes. The crowd was all over him, and some actually (gasp!) cheered for Cena! Shocking, right?
The big talking point will be the ending. In my mind, I really didn't mind it. The "winners" and "losers" often mean very little. Lesnar is still a beast, and Cena gets a big win.
Chael Sonnen destroyed Anderson Silva for 24 minutes in UFC, yet he lost the next minute and tapped out. Who really won there? The Rock pinned Hulk Hogan at Wrestle Mania XVIII, yet the Hulkster was the star. A month later, he won the WWE Undisputed title, and Rock was gone.
Lesnar crushed the biggest star of this industry, yet he took a loss. He also lost his last two UFC matches and nobody really cared. He is still Brock Lesnar! Nothing can hurt his credibility in WWE...
