So first and foremost,this being my first article here on Bleacher Report, I Guess you can say I wanted to start this off with a bang. Second yes I know "Cena Can't Wrestle" and "Cena Sucks". Third of all, no I am not a eleven year old kid sitting in his painted orange and green bedroom wearing a Hustle Loyalty and Respect shirt. Now that we got that out of the way let's begin with this.
I am an 18 year old who has been watching wrestling since I was about 6 or 7. With my first memory being a commercial advertising Raw and having something to do with the Original Degeneration X. Ever since then I've been absolutely captivated,amazed and inspired by what happens in that ring.
So when you develop such a love for something you obviously want to know where this great thing came from. So reading every wrestling book I could find, watching all the old DVD's and learning basically everything about wrestling from before I was even thought about being conceived and therefore unable to watch wrestling I stand here and say to you all this.
"Is John Cena your savior?"
Now I can see the hate mail and death threats already but before you contemplate how your going to hunt me down and torture me hear me out. I despise the man just as much as the next guy who was around to see the "Attitude Era".
Believe me watching this guy use his five moves of doom to climb his way to the WWE Title killed me. But you cannot deny the fact that this guy breaks his back for us night in and night out.He has the work ethic of an absolute machine, it's as if Vince Mcmahon went to a team of scientists and had this guy built to be the poster boy for his new vision of his company.
He has been the leader and face of the company for quite a while now. Following under Vince's orders like a puppy dog. But just today I read something that made me really reconsider my anger towards this guy. It's being reported that John Cena is the reason that Evan Bourne's stock is on the rise.
John Cena reportedly has gone up to Vince Mcmahon and told him he's dropping the ball with not getting behind him. Incredible, the guy I love to bash no matter which way he turns, no matter what he says, no matter what new moves he tries to attempt, is going and basically telling Vince you may got balls the size of grapefruits but IN THIS BUSINESS "SIZE DOESN'T MATTER!"
I know it sounds like another one of Cena's inspirational speeches but the Internet Wrestling Community absolutely drools over Daniel Bryan,and they have fantasies about Kaval. They would go nuts if either men got a push, because these two can go in the ring despite their size.
And sadly many times before plenty of you were let down because a small guy who could really hold a match wasn't ever given a push because of his size. Well guess what the man we all LOVE TO HATE, Cena is backstage speaking on your behalf.
Now listen I know we have just all become so used to bashing this guy but here are the facts.
No Cena is not Kurt Angle or Shawn Micheals. Yes Cena can however put on an excellent match when the pressure is on.No Cena is not the Second Coming of The Rock. Yes Cena is extremely gifted on the microphone and has tons of charisma.
Yes Cena is a wrestler geared towards the younger audience and has absolutely no shade of gray to him at all. But Cena is the face of the company and it's starting to look like Cena knows what he's doing. He's the man going to Vince Mcmahon and saying look these smaller guys, they need to look like legitimate contenders because they can go.
I challenge you all to for once think with an open mind, Cena may not be the best wrestler, he may not be the character that you want to see as the face of the company but at this point he is the best for the job. Randy Orton has done nothing but get talent either depushed or fired while Cena has been doing nothing but the opposite.
