I'm fairly certain all of you saw Cena coming.
And he almost didn't even make this list at all. After all, Cena has the accomplishments to compare himself to any of the best wrestlers in wrestling history: 12 world championships, 10-time WWE champion and a litany of other titles and achievements rank him statistically as one of the most successful wrestlers ever.
And yet, he's overrated. He's a hard worker, no doubt. But he's definitely a "5 Moves of Doom" wrestler that is limited in what he can do. And had the PG era not taken hold, Cena may never have become the face of the WWE.
Unfortunately for Cena, he's known almost as much for his public appearances and childish routines both in and out of the ring as he is for his actual wrestling. And his appeal to mostly children over the better part of the past ten years allowed him to sell merchandise and tickets without having to be a great wrestler.
He'll be in the WWE Hall of Fame, and I certainly can't fault him for taking the path laid out for him by WWE. But he's an overrated wrestler who's loved and supported by children. He makes the WWE money, and that—not his in-ring talents—is why he's been at the top of the card for so long.
Cena is overrated.
