Are There Really Any Reasons To Hate John Cena Anymore?

Sometimes it seems John Cena just can't catch a break.

As we all know, for every kid that cheers John Cena religiously, there will be an older wrestling fan ready to bash him. The so called "Superman" of the WWE may be the most despised wrestler of today when it comes to the smarter wrestling fans.

Whether they hate his moveset, whether they hate his title runs, whether they hate dominant babyfaces or whether it's just a 13 year old kid just trying to fit in, someone always seems to be on the former 8 time world champion's case.

Same old, same old.

In case you didn't know this, John Cena doesn't have a lot of power up in creative. He doesn't have friends in creative. He is certainly not a backstage bitcher and whiner. John Cena has virtually no control on whether he's in line for a title reign or not.

He didn't ask the Triple H's of the world to make him a star. He got to the top simply because he had everything that the top guy needed and more.

One of the age old arguments against John Cena is his long title reigns, or the fact that he holds or is challanging for the title.

Remember that 13 month title reign that Cena had in 2006-2007? The very same title reign that gives most of the fuel to this argument?

That was over 2 years ago, and since then John Cena has never had a world title reign that has lasted even 90 days. There's no way that three months can be called a long title reign.   

But of course, John Cena is always the champion anyway, right? When in 2008 he lost 4 of 6 PPV title matches, when in 2009 he won less then 50%, and when his upcoming Wrestlemania match is his first one on one title shot this year?

John Cena did get a lot of title shots last year, so for once there was validity to the argument.

Or there would have been, had people not been bringing it up all throughout his feud with Big Show and the Miz, and even throughout his feud with JBL in 2008. It's a shame they couldn't find a new tune to sing during this time.

As for Cena's inability to wrestle, people need to realise that WWE is still a wrestling company. Charisma is vital nowadays, but so is the ability to actually wrestle a match.

John Cena can do that. If he was as bad in the ring as people say he is, there's no way that he would be the biggest star in the company.

The reason why people think he can't wrestle is because he sticks to the same moves. WWE limits what he can do in the ring, but they also limit guys like Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker. With John Cena however, it is far more evident.

And finally, people like to label Cena the Hogan of this generation. While sometimes this is something that is pretty much impossible to deny, the haters let themselves down once again by firing it aimlessly.

Lets look at 2010. Has John Cena really acted like Superman this year? Unless you count the Elimination Chamber, I can't think of a single occasion.

I know that there are a lot of Cena haters out there who are mature enough to use their arguments when nessecery, and I respect them for it. It's sad to see this doesn't count the majority.

Now on to why Cena got to the top in the first place. Like I said, he did it with little help. Vince McMahon gave him a chance, and John Cena made the most of it.

Without doing into details, John Cena has the look, the charisma, good mic skills and is accepted by the key demographic, and we all know who that is nowadays.

He is also one of the hardest workers you'll ever come across and a top notch guy. He is one of the people who is just as likely to tear a muscle signing autographs then he is in the ring.

Because of all the reasons listed above, John Cena brings in a lot of money.

If that right there doesn't tell you why the Chairman loves John Cena, theres nothing I can do to explain it further.

So in conclusion, I hope a lot of the more immature Cena-haters out there take a good long look about why they hate him. I'm not particually a Cena-fan, but please have a valid reason to hate on him.
