Canada and the Top 5 Anti-John Cena WWE Territories
WWE RAW emanates from Montreal, Canada, on Monday and our North American neighbors will prepare a fresh batch of hostility for WWE's love-him-or-hate-him superstar.
This is all old hat for John Cena, who at best receives mixed reactions. Cena's reception tomorrow will only be mixed between those who strongly dislike him and those who hate him, as Canada qualifies as what Jerry Lawler calls "bizarro world," where animosity toward John Cena thrives.
Canada is not alone in their dislike toward Cena, as a handful of territories aren't shy about showering the multiple-time WWE Champion with boos.
5. Miami, Florida
Florida has always been collectively against John Cena; however, their brand of animosity was officially stamped through Cena's rivalry against hometown favorite the Rock.
Despite the WWE's efforts to have a split crowd for Rock-Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII, the Miami crowd was heavily in favor of the Rock and even booed rapper MGK for making inflammatory remarks about the Rock after playing Cena out.
4. New York City, New York
New York City crowds have also been partial toward the heels, and John Cena's babyface heroics do nothing for them.
With New York City typically being an older crowd, Cena's kid-friendly antics only intensify their disdain. New York is also the state credited with popularizing the famed battlecry, "If Cena wins, we riot."
It also doesn't help that Cena is a proud product of West Newbury, Massachusetts. Red Sox territory.
3. Anywhere, Canada
Canada is one of the WWE's most passionate fanbases, as the "Let's Go, Cena" chants are few and far between.
Like many anti-Cena hotbeds, Canada represents more of an old school crowd who appreciates wrestling over the sports entertainment aspect of the WWE that Cena defines.
2. Chicago, Illinois
Chicago, Illinois, has a well-documented history with John Cena. Cena was public enemy no. 1 in the summer of 2011 as he took on CM Punk for the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank.
This wasn't the first time the windy city would be so harsh. Cena was booed heavily in his WrestleMania 22 main event match against Triple H despite Triple H being the clear-cut heel.
This would be one of the catalysts for the WWE to begin marketing Cena as a polarizing figure who evokes more emotion out of the WWE Universe than any superstar.
1. London, England
Every year following WrestleMania, the WWE goes on their annual WrestleMania Revenge tour of Europe.
The overseas tour features RAW in the O2 arena of London, and there is no mistake as to how London feels toward John Cena.
England's spirited reaction to John Cena is yet another reminder of Cena's unique ability to incite passion from all fans. For better or worse.
