Today, John Cena receives a lot of criticism for his wrestling style.

But there was a time when it was difficult to deny his wrestling ability.

Cena used to incorporate more wrestling moves in his matches in a way that wasn't so predictable.

These days, the usual Cena match involves the opponent delivering most of the offense early on. Cena then picks up momentum by delivering his combo of several flying shoulder blocks, the spinout "powerbomb," five-knuckle shuffle and finally the Attitude Adjustment.

When that fails, Cena goes for the STF submission hold.

In this series, I'll highlight some of Cena's wrestling moves that he rarely incorporates into his matches anymore, but if he did, it would provide more diversity for the so-called "Cena-haters."
