John Cena is a superstar/wrestler that a lot of people either love or hate, but what is the truth? Is Cena a truly great wrestler or is he an overrated superstar that cannot wrestle?

First of all, we must all admit that Cena has won a variety of titles; in fact, he was WWE Champion, U.S Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Tag Team Champion, and he also won a Royal Rumble. So we can say clearly that Cena is a highly decorated superstar.

In addition, Cena has defeated a lot of great superstars such as The Big Show, Booker T, Edge, Kurt Angle, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Bobby Lashley (just to mention some names). Those guys are all great wrestlers, without a doubt. This is a positive for Cena. 

On the other hand, Cena usually uses only five to six moves in every match, so this means that he hasn't got a variety of moves, unlike most of the superstars.

I mean, if you look at the matches of wrestlers like Edge, Lashley, etc., you will see that they use at least 20 different moves.

Not to mention that Cena had a gigantic push from the WWE. I mean, let's face it, the WWE company gave some titles to Cena because they knew that it would make it easier to sell their products.

So, we can see that John Cena isn't what we can call a pure wrestler.
