/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.
 
2012-06-23 07:27:52 AM  
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.

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.

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.

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.

/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.

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!

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

Merchandising and marketing like his character just fine. And appealing to kids is a two for one deal. For every kid you bring into the show you're bringing in one adult in the adjacent seat. Turn him heel and you risk exchanging those two butts for one smark (who was probably going to attend/not attend anyway).

Besides flipping him for the sake of flipping him, I don't see enough benefits that make sense for a few years yet. (Besides, you can only make that big turn once. What is the rush? See also: Make Ziggler champion NOW!)

They don't have to turn John Cena heel. That's stupid and fixes nothing. He just needs better writing. WWE doesn't book strong heels. It goes all the way back to Bruno. You always knew who was going to win, be it Bruno, Hulk or Cena. That's what's stale and boring. Bruno's best feud was when a young guy was whipping his ass and stealing his "living legend" moniker. That's what they need to do with Cena.

When your entertainment based TV show says BE A STAR! BULLYING IS BAD in one segment, and the next is "LET'S MOCK THE HANDICAPPED", you have to expect to get some shiat you crazy old stockholm syndrome suffering shill.

JR has really proven over time he's a detestable scumbag, hasn't he? I don't think anyone is going to be complaining over mocking him anymore. But, Vince's hypocrisy is always fun to biatch about. When you take money for an anti-bullying campaign, you don't go on TV and provide a bullying clinic.

also got a lot of griping from the Mrs. when we were watching Raw one night and they did a make a wish promo. don't get me wrong. It is wonderful that folks of all backgrounds not just Cena can do what they can to make a child happy. But I commented during the commercial, "so if a kid with make a wish has a disease that made them go 100% blind, they really can't see him can they?"

Why was it so offensive when Ed Ferrera was doing it, but it's A-OK when Vince does it?

Oh, right, Vince is signing the paychecks.

FirstNationalBastard: TheManofPA: Jim Ross on mockery of his affliction with Bell's palsy: "Amazing how some jerk-offs on Twitter are either making fun of me for having Bells palsy or blaming me for what appears regarding it on TV. If it doesn't bother me at this point in time in my life then why should it bother others? I have long since stepped away from my issues with Bells and refuse to allow it to dictate any phase of my life to me. It will not define me. When I'm told to "grow a set" I'd suggest to those tools that I grew "a set" long ago specifically when I walked to the ring to broadcast a Wrestlemania main event with half my face hanging and I had to hold it up to speak to where I could be understood. I can only surmise that those making these cowardly remarks are younger, defiant males and if that assumption is true I am truly worried about the future with those individuals as potential leaders in our world. However, perhaps I shouldn't be worried as people like this are rarely successful or viable contributors in any society. My life is too blessed to worry about what turds say on Twitter about me or what occurs on a satirical skit in an entertainment based, TV show. Lighten up, Francis!"

When your entertainment based TV show says BE A STAR! BULLYING IS BAD in one segment, and the next is "LET'S MOCK THE HANDICAPPED", you have to expect to get some shiat you crazy old stockholm syndrome suffering shill.

JR has really proven over time he's a detestable scumbag, hasn't he? I don't think anyone is going to be complaining over mocking him anymore. But, Vince's hypocrisy is always fun to biatch about. When you take money for an anti-bullying campaign, you don't go on TV and provide a bullying clinic.


My belief is that JR has at this point earned his "f*ck you" money, and he doesn't give a good god damn about calling matches on TV. If Vince wants him to scout 6'2" 240lb athletes in college - or "hosses" as JR likes to call them (See; Jack Swagger, one of JR's favorite recruits) and tweet about bbq sauce, then JR will do it and love it. He's cared more about what the OKC Thunder were doing in the last four weeks than anything wrestling-related. Folks need to realize JR is essentially semi-retired, just like the Fink and a few other, choice guys from WWE's better days whom Vince keeps around out of loyalty and the occasional cameo. Blassie and Gorilla would still be on the payroll today if either were still alive. That's just how Vince is. Eat your sh*t sandwiches and stick around, he'll pay you for life.

So ummm........this Cena thread could take a turn by Monday Night:
Cena's sexual escapades were not solely limited to WWE Divas as he was simultaneously involved with 'ring rats'. Doane details, "Got one diva who is married to a guy outside of the business but she sleeps with Cena, then we got Cena who sleeps with rats (groupies, girls not in the biz, girls in the lobby waiting for an invite upstairs) and this married diva, and now my girlfriend."

Following weeks of inactivity stemming from the affair, Doane was transferred to the SmackDown brand on June 17, 2007, as part of the WWE Supplemental Draft. Doane reveals that the married Diva was transferred from Raw to SmackDown as well after being dumped by Cena.

"Following weeks I'm off TV and off the road until I get sent to SmackDown. Ironically, John's former Diva got sent too," Doane recalls. "So now we're on complete separate schedules and when there is a joint pay-per-view I'm off the road that day too and get flown in on a Monday for a Tuesday Smackdown. Yeah complete B.S. I get jobbed out then they take me off the road more and fire me."

Two WWE Divas transferred from Raw to SmackDown in the 2007 WWE Supplemental Draft-and the entire year-Torrie Wilson and Victoria. Wilson was in the process of divorcing Billy Kidman. Victoria has been married to a man not affiliated with the professional wrestling industry since 1998, matching Doane's claim.

John Cena says he plans to make an historic announcement on tonight's WWE RAW Supershow. Cena tweeted on Monday afternoon:

"In Fort Wayne for #Raw tonight I have an announcement that will make history! Make sure to watch #Raw"

If by historic it will be no doubt mundane or he won't make an announcement because the show gets a rewrite, I will agree with this statement.

Agree that he could walk away, money wise, but WWE is really his only viable distribution (and marketing) vehicle for the BBQ sauce and jerky. Even if he just hangs around in the background like Howard Finkel, it's worth it to him. But I don't believe for a minute that JR wouldn't love to slip back behind the Raw desk, even if they made him work with Heyman again. He's just not willing to play along with the on-air hazing Vince and Kevin Dunn appear to get their rocks off on.

Last few times on air, Ross just decided to stop playing along. IIRC the last one was when he got fired after the #OccupyRaw angle played out - he just tipped his black hat, and calmly walked to the back. He took away the fun of the troll/bully by not reacting, so they've stopped using him on live shows. It took Taker, HHH and HBK's stroke combined to get JR approved to call one WrestleMania match.

I bet we'd like a wrestling program better that had JR as the final word rather than Vince. But since he's the employee, JR will do whatever he's assigned.
