The John Cena, Darren Young Conspiracy

RockJohnsonContributor IApril 16, 2010

Hey guys! I'll try to make this one quick.

There's something that's been on my mind lately and that's Darren Young's strong and uncanny resemblance to John Cena.

I was watching Smackdown last Friday and during the CM Punk segment, I just couldn't believe how much Young resembles Cena in literally every way (body, height, facial expressions etc.) And, this leads me to one question: Will his resemblance to Cena alone jeopardize his career?

I believe that Young has a lot of potential and the WWE sees that (despite his ranking) which is why I believe he gets a good amount of airtime on both NXT and Smackdown.

However, every time I see him, it's impossible to not be reminded of Cena especially since his facial expressions are the same too. In order for him to make it, I believe he's going to have to truly stand out as character which he already is, and to improve his mic work and carry himself as someone polar opposite of Cena. That's why Goldberg was successful because he was nothing like Stone Cold despite the strong resemblance.

Thanks for reading guys! Let me know what you guys think.
