The Champ is Here! Counting down the Top 25 Matches of John Cena's Career
So, while I've been posting list after list, I've managed to get a hefty amount of Wrestling watched over the past few months or so. The whole "WWE Championship" and "World Heavyweight Championship" lists were extremely fun, so I decided to kinda make it my thing, because well....I just really fucking love lists for some reason
This is going to be my first Superstar feature, and these lists will indeed feature both PPV AND TV bouts over the Superstar's career. Who am I going to start this off with ? None other than the current face of the WWE and one of the most polarizing figures in wrestling history ; John Cena. Yeah I know "Let's Go Cena/Cena Sucks" has certainly become a staple at practically every live event nowadays, but I'm going to take personal preference aside and just look at the quality of Cena's matches and not his gimmick/character in itself. I believe that Cena is one of the true "great" workers of our time, and his match catalogue is up there with some of the all time greats. Let's get this thing started..

"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
