Austen took the reigns in 1998
Rock covered for Austens injury in 2000
Lesner beat Rock in 2002
Cena and Batista then went to the top in 2005
8 years have passed and in that time Batista has retired and we have been forced to endure Cena performing the same moves in the same storylines all the while using the same promos under the same gimmick.
when each of those former faces stood on top of the mountain, they developed a sense of credibility that is only obtained through losing cleanly and by putting someone over as a legit competitor
Cena wins almost constantly and when he does to lose, it is ALWAYS under some outside interference (Vs Dolph; AJ, vs Punk; McMahon and Laurinitis) i would continue but i'm struggling to think of Cena losing more
Superstars (especially the face of the company) have pull backstage on who should get promoted and who they lose to, cleanly; e.g Chris Jericho.
In his eight years on top, Cena has never done that.
in fact, anyone who draws sizable momentum, has it curtailed by Cena getting involved,
in the last year alone:
Brock Lesners Monumental Comeback
Big Show's latest mean streak
AJ's mental state and Relationships
Dolph Zigglers selling and top quality matches
The Shield and their presence and destruction over the roster (Pending)
Rather than breathing life into a new, original, prospective talent
he's killing anything that gets people talking
I don't dislike Cena, i want to like him but his matches are weak, his promos are are worse than stale, but simply time-consuming nothing and his character is so repetitive, he has become the "bathroom break" of RAW (which is hard because he usually closes it which i hard for a 3 hour show)
Also, when you mention "Worst year of his Career", how does that also factor his main eventing of any PPV he's involved in despite not being WWE champ at all or better matches featuring better performers on the card
I find Cena selfish and becoming almost a cancer of WWE since he is essentially the greatest heel in the business who is marketed as the face of the company
He loves the limelight, the main events, the title victories, the Wrestlemania billing, the TV spots, the interviews, the movies, etc.
he won't let anyone else take that shot, even if he has to sacrifice his own marriage, just to be the "Man"
someone else operated like that
and look at that fall from grace, we're looking at Hogan 2.0 right now
(although Hogan did put Warrior over cleanly at Wrestlemania, so in theory, he still trumpts Cena)
