/good for Cena. His character may be stale and annoying, but the guy behind it does some good stuff outside the ring. If only they would let his character change on TV, everyone would like him.

...except his soon-to-be ex-wife.

But he was stiff towards Colt Cabana in the back...

/I salute him for his work with sick kids. My station does a lot of work with Children's Hospital.
//Dustiness happens when you listen to the back to back interviews with the kids and their parents.
///Listening to the Punk/Cabana interview. If it means so much for these poor kids to meet their idol, and the guys go and meet these kids, that's awesome. Hospitals are not happy places. Let alone those that have to deal with young people.

Did he wish that Cena would explain what that stupid Showgirls thing he does with his hand in the commercials means?

Say what you want about his character being boring and too cartoonish, or that he has the 5 moves of doom.

The guy goes above and beyond for charities, especially the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Much respect for that.

Let's go cena, cena's great.

I can't see him.

These kids are real lucky that Cena has a lot of free time because if he had to sell it they would be shiat out of luck.

/respect, Cena
 
2012-06-23 10:54:53 AM  
Hard to dislike a guy when he does so much for charity. I wish they'd give him a break though. He puts a lot of time into the business.

FTFA: "Overall, I get 100-140 WWE wish requests a year," said Shaina Reeser, sports program manager at Make-A-Wish, "and the majority is for John Cena. He probably does two or three kids every week. It's crazy."


That's Sandusky territory right there

I heard some guy say that Cena wants to eventually do 1000 wishes. That means 700 more kids have to get sick and be near death. Shouldn't he want the kids to get better instead?

Raw keeps changing from Monday nights, to Monday Nights, then back to Monday nights. I can see how this gets confusing.

You're both sort of right.

RAW has always been on Monday nights, but was only an hour for its first four years, and there have been timeslot changes.

Before RAW, Prime Time Wrestling was the show that was moved all around the schedule... it was on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays... it ended up on Monday nights, in the spot RAW now inhabits, WWE has been on Monday Nights for nearly 20 straight years.

This. The only time it ever gets put on a different channel is during the Westminster Dog Show.

Ok, I don't have it in me, but NOBODY is going to rewrite the Cena lyrics to begin with "Their time is up....." to fit this situation? I expect more of you people.

//it is a great story with all the wishes granted

And it hasn't been switched because of that for years now. even taking that shiat into consideration it'd still beat the next closest show by a couple hundred.

Cena/Truth at Capital Punishment last year. The match finish sequence was kicked off by a Little Jimmy type tossing a cup of soda into Truth's face.

/As a wrestling fan, there are a number of reasons to dislike Cena, this isn't one of them.
//But man have they been ramping up the PR campaign since rumors of the divorce broke loose.

The fWc knocks Cena for what he does in the ring with WWE, for good reason. However, I think we all agree what he does outside the ring with the Make A Wish foundation is extraordinary. When other WWE Superstars take time off for exhaustion from the grueling work schedule, Cena still finds time to do 2 to 3 Make A Wish requests per week. He could easily say no as I am sure a lot of other celebrities do on a daily basis. However, he puts his personal time to the side to make a kids wish come true. For this I truly applaud the man.

Gotcha. Its been forever since I've watched wrestling. Grew out of it when I hit 17 or so.

Didn't realize Raw has almost 1,000 episodes. That's pretty damn amazing.

I don't know... I just kept hearing of it moving to different channels, some Thursday night show... splitting the WWE into a Monday champ and a Thursday champ, etc. Maybe I'm wrong on some of this. I just miss the heyday of the mid-1980's.

I see where you are coming from. Smackdown is taped on Tuesdays and used to be shown on Thursdays and now is on Friday with an occasional Live Smackdown on Tuesday. The core show Raw however has been on Monday nights since its debut.

So it makes the "YOUR TIME IS UP! MY TIME IS NOW! YOU CAN'T SEE ME! MY TIME IS NOW!" thing a little harsh does it.

/Also, I like Cena as a person don't get me wrong, I heard him in interviews and he's classy and cool, I just hate Cena as face of the company who needs to be shoved in the main event while others get farked over.

2012-06-23 02:07:00 PM  
Cena's the man. He was the only Superstar the day after Wrestlemania 19 who was cool enough to come to the front of the hotel to sign autographs and take pictures with the fans. Big Show, Lesnar...yeah right...didn't even make a step in the fans direction...just straight into their limos.

And this was when he was still a heel!

/Hulk Hogan was pretty cool when we tracked him down at Niketown

Damn you guys even follow your little gay tights parade in all the details of their real life. "If only they would let John Cena show his true stripes, all the wrestling losers would see what a shining star he really is. Yuk.

Said it before, saying it again: the IWC, especially the fWc, may be sick of Cena the character, but he genuinely is the best ambassador that Pro Wrestling could ever have. Even more than Hogan in his heyday. Hulk, Austin, and Rock may have gotten the mainstream attention, but Cena's work with charities, helping out the kids however ha can, that sh*t is admirable. He doesn't need to do this. He has a lot going on in his life, but he's giving up much of his extremely rare free time to help others.

TL;DR - character is stale, but the person is awesome

Easy way for Cena to get to 1,000 wishes granted:

Take 700 Make-a-Wish kids and put them in a Battle Royale with John Cena guest refereeing. Winner gets to enjoy a nice breakfast of Fruity Pebbles with John. All the losers get a commemorative 'Fruit Loop Troupe' T-shirt.
