Always thought Cena was capable of doing extraordinary things when given the chance. I think he's great in all aspects, so that makes him a total package. Only thing I see holding him down is his stale and awful character. He can work a mic and can work in the ring, he's proven it plenty of times, but sadly most people won't even hesitate to give him even a tiny bit of credit due to all the blind hate he receives. "I can show a bit of my heel persona, I could expand to the five moves of doom, but I will never win over these people." Pretty much sums it up right there.
On his best day? I'd rate him a 9 on the mic and an 8 in the ring.
On his worst day? I'd rate him a 4 on the mic and a 4 in the ring.
Cena should never get more than a 6-10 grade for in ring performance. the 8 and up are for wrestlers like Flair,HBK, Bret, Benoit, eddie, Angle, Jericho etc etc. By giving Cena an 8.5 you are saying he is just as good in the ring as those guys were.
