Hey guys Knox here, hope everything is going ok with everyone. I'm blogging about Cena today. We all know about how Cena was just awarded the WWE Title for the 10th time and it caused an uproar.
Personally, I'm a huge Cena fan. I value the guy's work ethic. When he was a heel in 2003, he was my favorite ever, I mean he rised to quick and probably deserved the WWE Title back in 2003 with his feuds with then WWE champs Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle.
Anyway, I'm going to go through the many faces of Cena.
Face 1: Ruthless Aggression Rookie (2002)
This is when he first came in. This is the one time he looked like a typical/normal wrestler. Great build, wrestling tights and a fresh angry hero rookie gimmick. I hated this gimmick lol.
Face 2: Heel Freestyling Cena (2003)
This is his best freakin work. The guy was getting such a huge reaction good and bad I mean the crowd erupted for this guy and it was awesome. I can't begin to count the memorable segments he did with this gimmick. The freestlyles against The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, Rikishi, Kurt Angle, Stephanie McMahon and others. He was the man and this by far was my favorite Cena. I'll take you all down memory lane, check out this heat Cena receives after a very nice freestyle against Kurt.
Face 3: Doctor of Thuganomics (2004-2005)
This was when he finally turned face and the crowd was super behind him. He went on to capture his first singles championship by winning the United States Championship from The Big Show at Wrestlemania 20. This is where he was pretty much on his way to becoming the top dog. Check out all the grown man Cena chants in this one.
Face 4: Chain-Gang Cena/Hustle Loyalty Respect (2005-2006)
He finally had a name for us fans of his, we were apart of his chain gang. This was the best gimmick he had. He let go of the rapping gimmick but still kept that street demeanor with him. This is when he finally captured the WWE Title at Wrestlemania 21 from my boy JBL. This gimmick drew but then the politics started kicking in which ended this gimmick very quick. The WWE didn't want a guy portrayed as a babyface thug representing their company as WWE champ.
Face 5: The Marine (2006-2008)
This my friends is where everything began to go down hill and when many of his loyal fans turned on him. The fact that he was on a path of being a movie star being to bother us all. We loved John Cena because he wasn't all Hollywood and he was a real dude in the ring that people could relate to.
So he accepted the Marine movie role. I didn't think the movie was bad, I just thought it was very typical and predictable. All of Cena's movies pretty much have the same plot. I mean in both 12 Rounds and the Marine, he is trying to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend. But the fact that the Rock called Cena out was beyong seeing as he played in horrible films such as the Tooth Fairy, The Scorpion King, Be Cool and Walking Tall.
So the WWE made the Marine the new gimmick for Cena. This is where he lost his balls. He had to do the right thing and come to everyone's rescue. He began to deliver Hogan like promos. It was horrible. He was becoming a whole different Cena than we all fell in love with.
Face 6: Super-Cena (2008 - )
This is currently where we are at. The superhero that gets his ass kicked for 15 minutes and turns around in 3 minutes to capture the victory. This is the Cena that draws for the kids. We are stuck in this gimmick until creative makes a move but it seems as if they want to role with this Cena forever. IT WILL NEVER END lol.
Now we are reduced to this.
Thanks guys for checking this out. This was basically me running through the different Cena's. My favorite hands down would have to be the 2003 heel Cena. Leave me feedback as well as your favorite Cena. And PLEASE CHECK OUTMY SONG ON YOUTUBE BELOW. THANKS GUYS AND BE SAFE.
