Cena was at the forefront of that movement, and for many young fans he caught on. His in-ring work never blew me ... Read More »

The WWE is Thriving Creatively. Deal With It.

John Cena Red Shirt

Wrestling fans hate wrestling. No, really. Don’t believe me? Google any combination of “John Cena/Brock Lesnar/Night of Champions” and mark all the negative adjectives wrestling fans use.

They hated the one-thousand-and-one german suplexes, or the fact that it wasn’t an ... Read More »

Raw Reaction 08/26/14: The John Cena Redemption Project

NikkiBrie

Raw was going up against the Emmy Awards so they stacked the opening segment with Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair.

Never in the history of this program has Raw felt more like an infomercial for something than last night’s edition. Ironically it was an infomercial for a product that legally I can not purchase being a Canadian and that is of course ... Read More »

The Authority was absent, Seth Rollins took center stage, and John Cena still managed his infamous “mixed reaction.” But was the show any good? Read on to find out… Read More »
