The reason people don't like is wrestling is a) they're haters and b) he's unorthodox. He doesn't have 50 suplexes but he's still a damn fine worker. My only problem is he has a bit of Angle in him in that his selling is kinda bad. He's been having this trend more recently, but part of me thinks that's cause he wants a break and doesn't give a fuck right now. I mean after he "won" that Punk match his celebration was ridiculous.

I would take an average quality Cena main event over pretty much anything Davey Richard has ever done in singles competition.

At times Cena can sell poorly but most of the time he's spot on.

I was on a Shoot phase the past 3 days so here's what I've gotten to

Timeline 97- Great stuff, surprised they skipped over some things though (Bret vs the Patriot).

Cornette Youshoot- Fucking great, amazing how he and Russo could be on "speaking terms" after this one. I couldn't stop laughing at some of the shit he said, watched all I think 6 hours of it including the lost questions. Worst part of it was the offthemarkshow.com guys, what a bunch of fucking jabronis. at Cornette getting pissed off at them, can't blame him

Gabe guest booker- Yawn, turned it off after about 20 minutes

Raven guest booker- Started off slow, but then he picked it up. Didn't have notes (like Russo), so I can cut him some slack

Sheik ring roast- Jimmy Graham and Bundy fucking flopped, lol at Muraco going up there and just praising everyone. Highlights were Backland, the comedians besides Graham, Volkoff, Blair getting bitchslapped, and Hall's drunken rage (even though it was for a good reason he did that)

Cena's selling is a weird one. On one hand, I think he can act too tired when he hasn't been worked over that much. On the other hand, he can pop out of nowhere and have a pretty annoying version of the Hulk Up. Still, he's definitely at his best working from the bottom and has pretty great short-term selling.

Can't say I'm a big fan of Cena on offense; he has a lot of stuff that doesn't look that good. Hate his suplex. If he had 50 suplex variations he'd probably suck at throwing all of them, so I'm glad he works within his limitations. Punches aren't too good (to the face, anyway, I like it when he fires away at a mid-section). He should never work a hold unless it's a headlock. To bad he's got an STF for a submission.

He has gotten better at countering stuff since mid last year. I don't think countering stuff is really all that necessary in a match, but sometimes he'd try it anyway like at WrestleMania 26 where I remember a really shitty sunset flip Batista Bomb counter or something like that. Overall the guy's a really good worker.

The Great American Bash 2004:

John Cena vs RVD vs Booker T vs René Duprée - ***
- A decent opener with some nice back-and-forth between four solid midcard talents at this point and Cena retains the US title.

Luther Reigns vs Charlie Haas - **
- Filler. I mean the reason this match happened was because Charlie spoke to Cena backstage after his match. This match is just one-notch above a squash match for up and comer, Reigns.

Rey Mysterio vs Chavo Guerrero - ***1/2
- A high speed cruiserweight match and the type that makes this division so entertaining. Great back and forth and they are given plenty of time to work with and both deliver as usual!

Kenzo Suzuki vs Billy Gunn - *1/2
- Filler once again.

Sable vs Torrie Wilson - *1/2
- They get far too much time for such a meaningless match and what's up with Sable flip-flopping between face and heel status?

Mordecai vs Hardcore Holly - **
- Mordecai's character is pretty interesting and his theme is pretty cool but this is the third filler on the PPV card and fourth if you count Sable/Torrie. The entire 'story' for this is some random backstage fight they had the Smackdown before. Just a squash match of sorts for Mordecai to establish himself, that's all.

Eddie Guerrero vs JBL - ***3/4
- Weird stipulation with the Texas Bullrope thing but it ended up being very entertaining. I had no idea how this match worked coming into it but I can say I enjoyed this match although the stipulation should just remain a rarity. Screwjob finish of sorts when Eddie looks like he has won it until "Mr. Angle" bursts his bubble and announces JBL as the new WWE Champion because his shoulder his the turnbuckle first.

The Undertaker vs Dudley Boyz - **1/2
- The match itself is pretty uninteresting. There's more focus on Heyman/Bearer/Taker and what will take place by the cement truck than in the ring. Also it was stupid having Taker go through all of that to save Bearer if he was going to bury him within the cement anyways.

Overall: ** out of ***** (Two good matches and a decent opener then the rest of the card just sucks. Roster seems so thin that they had to get in three unannounced matches! That speaks for itself, this is much like a modern PPV card with only a couple of storylines and the rest just being completely random and time killers. Shit PPV although the cruiserweight and bullrope matches are recommended.)

:/ at Taker/Dudleyz main eventing that show over JBL/Eddie. Could have put that in the middle of the show and gave it the same impact.

I like the bullrope match though. Don't remember Chavo/Mysterio but I've heard good things. That US title match has intrigued me but I've never caught it.

Undertaker vs Dudley Boys is a fuckin DUD. Eddie/JBL deserved better than being jipped just to have Undertaker kill off Paul Bearer.

(that's legit as some people know Taker is my guy)

I'd advise skipping the 4 Way United States title, Brye. Nothing special at all. In fact, it kind of sucks considering who is involved. Mysterio vs Chavo is a must. OWNS.

I think they wanted the Taker/Dudley's match to close the show because of the climatic finish with him burying his manager, Paul Bearer. I dont think it would have seemed as impactful if it were in the middle/begining half of the show but that's just my opinion.

Always wondered why Taker/Dudleys main evented. Made no sense to me, and honestly still doesn't because the WWE Title match was built up as a main event and should've been the main event.

Trying to murder Paul Bearer wouldn't seem right to have been in the middle of the show, only real reason that makes any kind of sense for that match to main event .

Original plans for Undertaker after he returned as the Dead Man in 04 was to feud with Lesnar, but he left. So... Booker T and The Dudley Boys were the next in line?
