Pretty much most of the guys back in those days were brawlers, most of the technical guys spent majority of their time on the mid-card, factoring that in, Cena's brawling style would have fit in pretty well in those days.

Whether you want to admit it or not, Cena would've fit in just fine with the right gimmick. His thuganomics gimmick would have certainly worked.

CM Punk is another candidate. Not too sure who else would've really been successful back then.

Dude. Cena is awful in the ring. AWFUL. We're talking about an Era that was proceeded by Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, pioneered by Shawn Michaels and Steve Austin, and carried by people like Austin, the Undertaker, Mick Foley, etc.

If you're trying to tell me that the fans back then would of marked out for Cena's shoulder attack off the ropes and his two body slams, please, just stop talking lol.

Did you even watch the Attitude era? If yes, were you only like six?
You can mark out for Cena all you want today. You can wear his little purple wrist bands when you look in the mirror. You can sing his theme song on your way to work.

But you don't get to say he would of worked in the Attitude Era.

Sorry.

Totally agree with this.

And he wasn't over because he got to use HBK catchphrases...you do know that the Outlaws had that theme and whatnot when they formed, which was BEFORE they joined DX, right? They got over as a heel tag team, and then started getting cheers because when they joined DX because they, and DX itself, turned babyface to feud with the Nation after WM14. They only DX catchphrase he ever used was Suck It, and everyone in the group used it. You make it sound like Billy Gunn only got over due to that, which isn't the least bit true.

Re: What superstars today do you think would have fit in perfectly in the Attitude Er

For a second, lets forget "character" or "gimmick" that any of these guys would have in the Attitude era. I wish any of them luck in having to deal with the likes HBK (97-98), Austin, Undertaker, Rock, Triple H all in their prime, in a backstage setting. The main event scene from that time period, was very much a cut-throat type of atmosphere. Not only that, but even Vince McMahon himself was a different person from the Vince McMahon we see today. Not only because he was younger obviously, but he was alot more aggressive with his booking and the way he did business. I'm not saying none of the guys from today could have made it back then, but it's tough to envision today's guys dealing with the wrestlers I listed above in their prime backstage. And of course the Vince from those days. Not impossible, man it would be a treat to see.

Not only this, but guys didn't come out with basically teleprompters, having all their material spoon fed to them by some guy back stage.
You basically got told you were doing a promo, got handed a microphone, and sent on your way.

Cena's white-thug gimmick (being polite and mod conscious) would have been torn to freaking shreds on the mic by HBK, The Rock, Austin, Foley, Jericho, and basically everyone.
He wouldn't of been protected. They wouldn't be telling those guys "Hey, go easy on Cena out there."

Guy would have been ripped to absolute shreds. This on top of the fact that his matches suck and he has zero ring psychology.

Punk would be right up there with anyone in the AE. He would be able to hold his own on the mic and for sure in the ring.

Sorry.
It seems like you are just another person who despises Cena on here, and can't give him credit for anything. If you would read through my posts, then you would easily comprehend that I'm saying that Cena's current character today wouldn't work at all in the Attitude Era. Judging by Cena's in ring skills today, which aren't bad as you make them out to be, there would have to be a heavy focus on Cena's character for him to become successful or at least survive in the Attitude Era.
