Yes, I’m bringing up the SuperCena bit. Believe me, Cena haters are as sick of bringing this up as Cena lovers are of hearing it. Mainly because nothing’s ever changed about it.
But before Cena was “fired”, he was actually starting to look good when it came to putting people over; he made Justin Gabriel look great. And he was even putting pay to all the nay-sayers that said he couldn’t wrestle. In the past couple of months Cena’s put a lot of effort into expanding his move set. He’s been mat wrestling a lot more (since Legendary came out ironically) but since he’s come back, the superman gimmick has been starting to break through again.
His first match after being re-hired was against David Otunga. He was blatantly going to win that. When’s the last time Otunga won a match? No I’m not counting the match he had on smackdown when he beat Edge because you can hardly call that a win. Was it the tag team titles match months ago? And even then it was Cena who did all the work and got the pin.
But then he had his chair match against Barrett. Wade destroyed Cena at the TLC pay-per-view, but Cena just came back, did a few flashy moves and then beat Barrett after an attitude adjustment onto a row of chairs. Cena took countless chair shots during the match but still kicked out of every pin.
The same thing happened with Dolph Ziggler. The man dominated during the match, cheated at times, but still lost. Even after the match when CM Punk hit him with the chair, he was back standing up within a few seconds just looking angry. Punk said he had beef with someone. I’d laugh if he was just attacked Cena because he knocked over Punk’s soda when slamming Heath Slater through the announce table.
