Who had more power, Hogan or Cena?
 
I was not really around in the Hogan era, but I'm smart enough to understand how popular he was and how he took WWF to heights it had never been before. At the peak of his years Vince would of done anything to keep hold off him.

As for Cena, well he is the big money machine weather you like him or not. They are so desperate to keep him active that he even appears on TV and too promote PPV when he is injured.

Cena really has Vince and the WWE by the balls if he wants. They can not afford to lose him and he could demand any kind of contract he wanted, all he would really have to do is threaten to leave...

In their respectful era's both had the popularity and power to get what they wanted when they wanted. They could turn big scary Vince into a scared little boy if they pleased...

But out of the two...which one has the most power?

I go for personally vote Cena. In those days many people thought wrestling was real and would go to watch grown men "fight". There was also a very well pushed roaster behind Hogan too so the attraction was there...Cena on the other hand has had a show pretty much built round him and him alone...everyone else has been made a prop to say the least...

The thing with wrestling is it doesn't matter how much popularity a performer has or how much money he brings in, if he needs to be replaced he can be at the drop of a hat. Look at Ryback being inserted into the main event. Boom hat some. If cena retired tomorrow, Vince would just make some one else. I think Cena doesn't have power over Vince maybe just over other wrestlers. I think the position he is in is because he is so loyal to Vince it is Vince with the power. Hogan though had mainstream appeal and wasn't so subservient to Vince, and there was always another promotion that was equal to WWF that he could jump to if Vince didn't cater to him. In the end Hogan left and WWF although didn't have the best years it went on. Cena deides to do a Rock or gets injured whatever Vince will make another guy

Hogan obviously. But Cena himself is pretty powerful guy backstage. He got Riley de-pushed in the middle of his hot babyface run just like that. Riley is now jobbing in Superstars.

I think the real question should be " Who has more power, hogan or punk?".

Hogan had all creative control of his character in WCW and wouldn't be surprised if he did in wwe.

How does Cena have power? Cena even said himself about wanting to play a diff character, but he couldn't. He has less power than people think,but because Cena is a main guy, and someone that many people on here hate, they just find more random reasons to not like him.

Winning matches and being a top guy, doesn't mean you have power....

Though having power, doesn't mean you're gonna abuse it too.

He has power. The show revolves around him and he is the most over guy on the roaster. And he is the main guy by quite some distance...

Also this is not a Cena hate thread so not sure why you think that? I like Cena...

And I agree it does not mean it you will abuse it, but the potential is there.
