So after feuding with CM Punk for months, John Laurinaitis randomly sets his attention on John Cena and lays him out? Then, he challenges Cena to a match at the next pay-per-view?
What's next? John Cena breaks every bone in his body but still manages to win the tag team championships himself?
This is not me “hating” on John Cena. The only thing I hate is when people use the word “hate” as a cop-out for writers on here being critical of Cena.
Just look at the last few feuds. First, Kane came back with his scary mask and was destroying Zack Ryder and John Cena only for Cena to ultimately win. Good triumphed over evil, and John Cena proved he would never, ever turn heel.
Then, he moved onto The Rock. He lost cleanly so I give him kudos, but he was made to look like he “needed” the win to validate himself. John Cena is one of the biggest names in history and should not need to “prove himself” to anyone.
Then, the unstoppable Brock Lesnar came back and destroyed Cena for weeks. Lesnar looked absolutely terrifying and unstoppable. Just when you thought Brock was going to be the “new face of the WWE,” John Cena ends up beating Lesnar in his first match back in the WWE.
After all of that, John Laurinaitis snaps for no reason and attacks Cena?
Can we just let CM Punk get the spotlight for one PPV? He's the WWE champion, yet he never main events a pay-per-view because the WWE is too busy creating “must-see” feuds for John Cena. Give Cena the title back then because if he is going to always to be in the main event, then I at least want to see the title get some prestige back.
I obviously understood why Cena was in the main event of WrestleMania 28 because it was a match between two of the biggest WWE stars of all time. However, it boggles my mind why we are STILL seeing Cena being put into the big feuds while CM Punk, Randy Orton and Sheamus wallow in midcard madness.
Laurinaitis and Punk have a history, so it would have made logical sense to see Lord Tensai begin a feud with CM Punk. Big Johnny could have used Tensai to try to put Punk down.
Again, I do not hate John Cena, I just want to see an alternative to Cena once in a while. I am not asking for heel turns, character changes or the return of the “Doctor of Thuganomics.” I am only asking to see someone else be the story for just one month. Is that really too much to ask?
