To be fair, he HAD to win that. Rock/Cena would be shit if Cena went in looking anything other than unstoppable. Also he's not going to take any bumps really because it'd be an absolute disaster if he were to get injured. I'd not be surprised if he didn't wrestle until Mania now.

cena gets way too much shit considering how hard he works. only one man main eventing WM deserves it, and its not the one im a fan of. he's not even the worst wrestler in wwe right now. he wins because the fans love him, he sells merch, he sells PPVs, and at the level he's at it would be so easy to only wrestle 5 times a month but he's at all the live shows. and he's one of the best talkers they have as well. i dont see what you can hate about that, even though id rather not see him win constantly.

No I agree he has to go into Wrestlemania with a head of steam, and then hopefully get his candy ass handed to him (if he want in with grim prospects i'd be afraid of the fucker actually winning and i'd have to stop watching WWE for a while.)

But that's still 6 weeks away, they had plenty of time to almost knock him down and build him back up again before Wrestlemania. If he had've beaten Kane by choking him out with a cable, or lunging at him wildly knocking off the stage or something, cue closeup of Cena's face contorted etc it would've been much more satisfying. Cena goes into exile for a couple of weeks, some promos of him in mental torment... comes back, makes it up to Ryder as a sort of purification ritual and then bam he's the hero again. The night is darkest before the dawn and all that; WWE really missed a trick there by not doing that.

To be fair, the spot at the end was fucking terrible.

It wasn't really anything different from what I expected of them actually (I knew I was in for a disappointment), i'm just glad they didn't do a closeup of Cena posing and use a load of canned pop to make him look like Superman

So i'm an idiot for thinking Danielson will be headlining Mania am I :P

Good PPV I thought too , and I have said it a lot, Cena for all his faults, works his bollocks off

I'm one of the few who didn't doubt that, just my issue was Danielson wasn't being allowed to wrestle to his fullest. He did impress me in the chamber match though. Hopefully he wont try to weasel a victory at Wrestlemania and we'll actually see a quality match.


And as regards to Cena, as true as that may be, I still have barely ever seen him in a match that didn't bore or aggravate me

Well Cena isn't aimed at us wrestling fans, he's the face of the company and there to sell it to the masses, if it was the other way around, WWE would be in front of 500 people a week instead of 8000 plus :lol:

And watch his match at One Night Stand against RVD, freaking awesome :o

And he's getting to play tonsel hockey with Eve , i'm sure he is really hating the fact he's being booed at the moment :lol:

The lucky twat :x

Haven't seen that one, i'm still slowly working my way back through the years i've missed picking up good matches here and there. I don't always want to punch screen when he's in the ring (if he's nowhere near a microphone or doing one of his little gestures then it's usually a good sign) which i why i said I occasionally can appreciate him.

But sorry, hated that match at One Night Stand.

i'll grant you that his usual match where he gets beat down them comes back to win is annoying, but there are much worse people who get nowhere near the hate he does.

But are any of them main eventers and 10-time world champions?

also, you'll see when you watch raw, but that accident was as bad as it looked.
