A Balanced Story of the Ultimate Pariah:  John Cena

Last week, Dan Power wrote an article on this website asking the question, “why is there so much hate for John Cena.”  You can find it here:


While I consider his article to be well-written, one that I felt inspired to comment on a couple times, I felt that it was a bit defensive and didn’t capture enough of the timeline that we need to analyze to see exactly how Cena got to this point.  It provided great arguments against many of the IWC’s criticisms of John Cena The Character, but in order to fairly ask “why do we hate him,” we need to first ask “how did he get here.”

I was there to see Cena start in WWE, rise to meteoric heights, and fall out of respect, and often times, I’m a good person to give a balanced view of a situation.  Keep in mind, this is in no way a Cena rationalization, nor is it a condemnation.  It’s a statement of the facts with a pinch of my opinion thrown in.

Here’s how his career pans out for me.  Let me know if you agree or disagree.
