the best are okay, but I don’t think I like the worst of lists in general

I’m a little sad that I’m the only guy who voted for Robbie E as worst wrestler. C’mon, that guy’s terrible!

Gotta love John Cena getting match of the year (adding to his insanely large pile of all time classic matches) yet we still get comments about him doing nothing compelling. Christ he’s the most absurdly underrated worker ever.

never have so many people actively tried to hold a wrong opinion as with John Cena

John Cena is an interesting case. He clearly has as much passion for wrestling as anyone else I’ve seen, even including CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. He works his ass off to put on good programs, and he loves it. I’m sure that when he’s been injured and unable to compete, it’s just eaten him up inside not being able to contribute. As long as the other person cares, he can put on a good match and a good feud. And he tries t o do a lot of good with the high profile he has. Between his work with Make a Wish and shows for soldiers overseas, he’s wrestling’s Bob Hope, in a way.

Not that this is news, but I think Cena’s success is the primary reason for the backlash against him. WWE relies on him so much as a top draw and merchandise seller that turning him heel would probably be a big financial hit in the short term. And Cena doesn’t make the best underdog. I mean, have you seen the guy? So to make him an underdog, WWE has to ramp things up with biased guest referees, 3-on-1 handicap matches, etc. That eventually gets old; it’s just that “eventually” for Cena was several years ago. I think a good run as a heel, not even necessarily a year long, would do wonders to subdue that backlash.

It’s the eternal split between John Cena the worker, who is not only good but has actually been on a very good streak as of late (his match with Cesaro recently was astounding), and John Cena as he is booked, someone who overcomes the odds so often that it’s hard to really build up anyone against him.

I think that Cena is overbooked and underrated (with the latter stemming largely from the former). I would like to see less of him on television, but the notion that there are people who could watch him in a match like the one that he had with Cesaro on Monday and still say that he doesn’t pull his weight is absurd.

Or any of the 5 classics with Punk. Or the MOTY with Bryan. Or the Match of the Decade candidate with Brock. Or Dolph Ziggler’s best match ever. Or way back the match I personally ranked as the second best WWE match of the 00′s Last Man Standing with Umaga. Or getting an actual good match out of Bobby Lashley. Or getting a decent match out of Khali. Or…

Thanks to the people who agreed about a certain “local” Worst Promotional Move. We need more people to Join the 15 and tell the truth about PWS.
