So I'd say it was around the start of "The Marine" Cena. Or maybe even to pinpoint it, when he won the WWE Championship and WWE turned it into that bling-bling spinner atrocity.

Ok I had to add this direct quote from Cena's Wikipedia article due to its sheer hilarity.
yeah i remember that cena was doomed that fan enviroment was hostile as hell

Him making Angle his bitch in 05 was what made me take a almost 7 year break from wrestling altogether.

Re: When did everyone start hating Cena SO much

During his year long title reign and the fact that if he had not gotten injured, they were still planning on having him hold the title. I have said it before and I will say it again, faces should not have super long title reigns. The whole point of a super long title reign is to get anticipation for the hero who eventually ends it. That is why C.M. Punk's title reign was good because he ended it as a bad guy and the fans WANTED the title off him. If Cena had gone rogue in 2006, I could have tolerated his title reign because at least there would have been a light at the end of the tunnel but no, it was not. He was a boring face getting booed by majority of the audience. When your top face gets booed like that, you know you fucked up somewhere.

Check out the pilot for my webshow WISHFUL THINKING. It is a show about a college student who fucks up his day and a Genie grants him the opportunity to do it all over again and he finds new and creative ways to fuck it up even more.


Watch Episode 2 of WISHFUL THINKING
The Test: Rob gets caught cheating on a test and has a chance to go back and do it again


Watch Episode 3 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Date: Rob tries not to fuck up a hot date and does it anyways.


Watch Episode 4 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Poker Game: Rob tries to win some money at Poker and is terrible at it.

Re: When did everyone start hating Cena SO much

The moment it became clear something was wrong was Summerslam 2005 when Jericho started the split reactions. But the true hate came, as some have said, when he beat legend after legend. ANd not just with the FU/AA, but with the worst looking STF in the history of the business. At the point, most couldn't get behind him. There is a line of pushing talent and ramming down people's throats when they just won't accept it and Cena is the perfect example of it. He beat everyone and everything... hell, he still does most of the time.

And people will say "but Hogan!" and point to the old superface of old... well, two things: this isn't the 80s anymore, fans have changed and they want more complex characters than the traditional style and... huge difference incoming... Hogan didn't start slapping on the figure 4 on Savage, Warrior, Andre, Dibiase and getting them all to tap. At least Hogan bloody won with an arsenal and moveset that made sense with his stature. Cena became truly unbearable the moment McMahon made a desperate grasp to the IWC and went "LOOK LOOK! He can do a submission! LOVE HIM!". It backfired.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

Re: When did everyone start hating Cena SO much

Never really hated him as much as people here hates him. I was just started to get bored with his character during 2009.

It's funny you used those two for your hypothetical examples, because it doesn't need to be hypothetical, that did actually happen to both of them.

Luckily in the Rock's case they caught it early on and just turned him heel on the RTWM in early 2003.

But in Hogan's case, when he first came to WCW he was getting booed so badly they had to edit out the boos and dub in a track of cheers. Flair wrote about how embarrassing it was. Luckily it was before they went live with Nitro so they had time to get him over a little bit, but he soon went stale again, hence the eventual heel turn with the NWO.

Re: When did everyone start hating Cena SO much

I don't mean this to be offensive as it sounds but there is a reason most wrestling fans are called marks because they are easily influenced and hating Cena has become cool among wrestling fans. I mean the "Let's Go Cena, Cena Sucks" are not compeating chants, its one verse. I will admit the whole good guy overcoming all odds to rise to the top has become stale and I understand some of the fan reaction. Plus with Cena being the favorite of so many kids, some people dismiss Cena's popularity as a kids thing something a serious fan could not possible like. While I do not have WWE merchandise sales info just from watching Raw and Smackdown you can see that a whole lot of adults buy Cena merchandise. The fact of the matter is Cena is the face of the company, the real world corporate champion, whether he has the title or not.

Re: When did everyone start hating Cena SO much

I was a pg 13 fan so I've hated most rap based gimmicks since them (they were really good at the gimmick imo..) when cena started he fell into that group and I immediately didn't like him, especially with his talked out men on a mission delivery. add in his bad wrestling and the so undeserved push he got like a year after he first started annoying me and I don't believe I've ever liked the guy..
