Hey guys, StratZ- here, I've posted a few blogs before, but I want to start getting more into it, so I'm gonna start a series called the "What If"
For debut series, I'm going to be focusing on John Cena. What if he wasn't in WWE? What if he was in TNA?
I believe that Cena is a HUGE part of the WWE. From the attitude era-pg era.
Currency: Nobody can deny that Cena helps the WWE make a ton of money for the WWE. He's the #1 selling merch in the WWE. Without him, the WWE would not have as much money as they do now. Even with Ryder, Punk, etc
Championships: I think back in the day where Cena was in his rapper gimmick, he increased the prestige, in my opinion, for the United States & the WWE championships. What Cena did to the US title was brilliant. Now I'm not saying that it didn't have prestige before, but it just gained more! The spinner belt was sick! It was unique and creative. He was something new in the WWE that had never done before. Same for the WWE championship! I was young when I saw him debut that title, but it was such an awesome moment for me, because for me, it looked sicked when I 1st saw it, but now I don't enjoy the looks of the title as much. Obviously now, the US Title as lost a ton of prestige! As for the WWE championship, its been up and down.
Gimmicks: Nobody can deny that Cena was 1 of the main men that made "different" gimmicks work. I mean, who in the hell thought that some white kid from a small town in Mass could pull off being a rapper? And ALSO being GOOD at it! He was hilarious at it and was also serious when needed. An awesome heel/face. I think by him being able to pull that off, it opened more doors for unique and creative gimmicks. I honestly wouldn't mind him in that gimmick again! Even though I am a Cean fan, his whole gimmick at the moment, isn't great. WWE needs to repackage him and make him worth wild like he was when he 1st started.
Currency: Man... Just thinking about this already makes it a big landscape.. Would Cena sell merch? Yes. Will he get TNA a lot more profit? Yes. Will he be the #1 selling merch? Debatable. TNA fans are older than WWE fans, so to have him as the #1 selling merch... Its hard to say. But TNA would profit a lot more because it's simple, Cena draws in money. Hands down.
Championships: Of course, I don't think Cena could pull of a TNA spinner belt, but for him to hold a belt, could add prestige to it. especially the Tevelsion Title. It's all based on how TNA play out his story line and character.
Gimmick: Would Cena's rapper gimmick be able too work in TNA? Quite possibly. His superman gimmick? No way in hell. I could 100% see Cena as a heel over there. His wrestling style would be different also. Most likely more aggressive and a bigger moveset.
Overall, Cena loves the WWE and he isn't going anywhere! Whether he like him or not, you have to respect him as a person and as a businessman. He's a huge part in the E. I hope you guys liked this blog, if you did be sure to give me some feedback! Let me know if I should keep doing these series. Also, i would love to work with someone who has experience in blogging about Wrestling. It's on my bucket list too do a double blog! Thanks!
