Wrestling Shorts: John Cena with Downtown Bruno

John Cena is a fantastic guy. Period. Ok, I will elaborate or this would be a very short boring column; huh?? Ladies and gentlemen, I know I’ve been accused of toeing the company line and going out of my way to NOT be controversial, but hey – the truth is the truth. John Cena is a super guy from A to Z. He looks great, he is highly intelligent, he is well-spoken, his in ring performance is great. Yes!! GREAT!! And he is box office - PERIOD!!

Those of you who disagree with me about his in-ring abilities are either A: Jealous, B: not knowledgeable or C: full of shit. You can’t consistently be in the main event and sell umpteen million dollars worth of tickets, pay per view buys and huge amounts of merchandise if you are not good at what you do. The match is the thing and if you can’t wrestle, then you can’t draw. Screw all of what you might think you know. All the flipping and diving and Japanese bullshit. It doesn’t mean anything.

Who drew more money than Hulk Hogan?? I will tell you right now – NOBODY!! Hogan is, was and will always be the Elvis Presley of our business and NOBODY is in second place. The Rock – not enough longevity. Austin?? If he was still the ring – yes definitely. Cena?? On his way. He is the Avatar to Hulk’s Titanic. Think about that one.
