Hustle, loyalty, respect, and now...
That's right, and John Cena should be ashamed of himself right now. His dishonesty has cost the WWE Universe, and it has cost us big-time.
I thought you never give up, never surrender?
Something like that.
Yet in the face of your most humiliating defeat, you laid there like a jobber and allowed an unqualified competitor walk away with your WWE title.
Where was your hustle?
Where was your willingness to pick yourself up and fight again, like you promised?
Where was your loyalty to the company that has done so much for you?
Yet you allow them to disgrace their own championship.
Where was your respect for the business?
You're John Cena, Vince McMahon's pride and joy, the poster-boy of all things WWE.
Don't you have a voice?
Didn’t you see a bad idea coming from a mile away?
Back in your heyday, you defeated the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Bobby Lashley—none of whom appeared qualified to take the WWE title away from you.
But Sheamus, yes Sheamus—whose career-high prior to last night was defeating Jamie Noble—is suddenly the man deemed qualified to take out our soldier.
If John Cena were to take Vince McMahon, Triple H, the creative team, or anyone who might have been responsible for last night's disgrace and say, "Hey, I'm not so sure that Sheamus is qualified to be the number one guy in the company", don't you think they would have at least listened?
God help us if you tried, because if you did, Cena, that means they spit in the face of their golden-child's opinion because they were so overwhelmed with the brilliance that was their new idea.
I'm not sure which is more disturbing: Cena's failure (in or out of character) to prevent this disaster or the WWE's embrace of what they felt to be a great idea.
You said Mr. Cena, that if you were put through a table that you would get up, use your rematch clause and take back what Sheamus doesn't deserve.
Cena, I've seen you beaten, whipped, and electrocuted over the past few months—which apparently wasn't enough to keep you down.
What, is Sheamus implanted with Kryptonite?
You fell through a wooden table.
You laid on the mat and watched an ECW-nobody take the most prestigious prize in sports entertainment from you.
You failed to honor your word; there was no re-match.
I've heard people speculate that Sheamus botched the finish.
You think someone as coordinated as Sheamus would make a mistake like that?
Clearly the WWE elected him to be one of the fastest people to win the WWE title in history because he was over-qualified to do so.
"If" the match was supposed to be a draw and Sheamus' lack of coordination ended up destroying the prestige of the industry's greatest prize, then Sheamus's character should be punished without mercy.
You get one chance you don't deserve to have a WWE title match and you screw it up so bad that you end up walking away with a title the WWE didn't plan to give you?
Again, I'm not sure which is worse: seeing an under-qualified Sheamus ruin the conclusion of a PPV championship match, or knowing that the WWE actually felt that he is the most qualified wrestler in the world to be champion.
