John Cena: First Ballot Hall of Famer

From the latest Wrestling Observer newsletter:

Quote:
Cena easily became a rare first ballot Hall of Famer. Cena, eligible because he turned 35 this year, pulled strong numbers among every group other than retired wrestlers. The last first ballot Hall of Famer was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in 2007. Cena was voted in during the year that he and The Rock headlined the biggest money pro wrestling event in history at WrestleMania.
This is not the WWE Hall of Fame, this is the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame, one that I (as well as so many others) recognize as the official Hall of Fame for the industry.

This speaks volumes in that it wasn't the WWE machine that forced Cena in, he was VOTED in by an uncount number of his most successful colleagues from various parts of the industry. This is not only rare in terms of getting voted in on the first ballot, but speaks volumes of him as a box-office draw and in-ring performer despite what keyboard warriors and hypocrites who end up watching and paying to see him perform say about him.

This ine speaks volumes to me -

"...pulled strong numbers among every group other than retired wrestlers."

Cena can't lace the boots of the real HoFers. He makes money off little kids, he's a joke.

He couldn't get the votes from out-of-touch carnies. What a loser.

And when Cena is retired, we can call him an out-of-touch carnie?

...or legends of the business

Cena makes money, kudos for that, but anyone who considers him a 'legend' or even fit to carry the greats of the pasts jockstrap's is a cretin.

Re: John Cena: First Ballot Hall of Famer

He gets in the Hall of Fame by virtue of being the face of the WWE (which has run pretty much unopposed at the top of Wrestling for over a decade) and not much else.

1. Carried the company on his back for years
2. Some of the best matches of the decade
3. Multiple MOTYC
4. Multiple title wins
5. Royal Rumble winner
6. One of the most well known wrestlers in the world
7. Been on movies, talk shows, tv shows
8. Been in some of the best feuds of the decade (Edge/JBL/Batista)
9. Always gets a huge reaction
10.One of the best talkers in the company

Like him or not, Cena is a legend. Just imagine how big he will be in 5-10 more years.

I guarantee 99% of the losers here would be ecstatic if Ms. Anderson put out for them in 2012.
