Re: Worst Wrestling Gimmicks Ever
John Cena the Superman
By far the worst gimmick in the last decade and the most damaging to the progression of other stars.
Really? Possibly the greatest gimmick of all time if you actually think about it. (Except for Taker)
Firstly, 50% of the universe worship
him in this gimmick, which is saying something. The other 50% despise him. And we have a unique dynamic, because love or hate him we aren't going to have anything like this again for a long time, with such an energy and a 50/50 split in the arena's.
People love to love him, and love to hate him. To simplify this, it just makes for great TV, and everybody has an opinion.
To take a Punk analogy, in 20 years time people are going to look back at Cena's reactions and think "Damn, there just isn't anything like that anymore these days".
Vincent K McMahon:
"Despite the way I would feel personally about someone, if it's the right business thing to do, I'll do it for our audience."
"Giving it to the audience is probably the easiest thing. Finding out what they truly want is probably the most difficult."
"If you stop building stars, which we never do, you wouldn't be in business."
"We love our fans, so there's nothing we wouldn't do for them, and we go directly to them."
"Again, the nice part about it is that we listen to our fans, and they're the ones who really decide who is ready to break through into that top echelon."
