That's just blatantly untrue, and funily true on Cena's part.
/Cena was fantastic because how Cena sold that beating and how unstoppable Lesnar looked. Cena has to over come the odds and find a way to defeat Lesnar. It had a decent story, which most Angle matches don't even both to include and that's the point of pro-wrestling.
Oh it was absolutely fantastic and incredible on Cena's part. Lumbering around and doing absolutely nothing of any importance or significance to the match and then doing a fireman slam for the win. A true story of a hero overcoming the odds. Exquisite. YOu're right, Cena's role was played just wow.
Filled that in for yah.
Cena's body of work smokes that...
Cena vs Umaga RR.
Cena vs Lesnar ER.
Cena vs Punk MiTB, SS and NOC.
Cena vs HBK WM and Raw '07 & '09.
Cena vs Mysterio Raw '11.
Cena vs JBL JD '05.
Cena vs Edge UF '06.
Cena vs Batista WM and ER.
Cena vs HHH vs HBK SS.
Cena vs HHH NOC.
All carryjobs right?
Most of those matches are average wrestling matches at best with some of them being school examples of what a carry job is and some just being plain sad backyard quality garbage wrestling, i.e. vs Batista, JBL. Even something like Angle vs Wolfe from Turning Point or any of the matches vs AJ or Joe outclassess every one of those matches by a mile. I see matches of higher quality between JTG and Drew McIntyre on the usual Superstars episodes. Angle had matches twice the quality of those on random days against random workers like X-Pac and Crash Holly, matches that are because of his body of work being so huge, completely forgotten.
It is easy to remember something like Cena vs Mysterio Raw '11.
when your sample size of memorable performances is as small as Cena's. If you looked it up, you'd notice that Kurt had that kind of matches practically every week. Raw in, Raw out.
