As for the boring chants, they came so late in Cena's promo that they were honestly welcomed by me. All he was doing was saying the same thing he always says.
The boring chants during Cena's promo couldn't have been more appropriate. He said nothing new and then started repeating himself within the same promo. Had they switched up last week's confrontation with Rock and did that last night, I think the match sells much better. Two individual promos right before Wrestlemania makes no sense. Main eventers should ALWAYS have one final major face to face confrontation before battle if you want to sell this shit right. That's a proper cliffhanger on the last show before a PPV, not this "I'm gonna kick your monkey/candy ass" bullshit while the opponent is backstage. That shit's hollow. It's boring. Hell, hollow ass kicking threats happen all the time on the internet! Say it face to face for your last promo.
The high arc of this storyline wound up being last week and not last night and that's a shame. Last night stalled the storyline. Creative either ran out of ideas of Vince took over. So yeah, I can definitely see the "boring" chants for Cena's promo.
Plus it's the same bullshit lines when it comes to wrestlers pitching the pay per views....
"In six days..."
"In six days at Extreme Rules..."
"In two weeks at Summerslam..."
Yeah, we get it. It's not that we can't see the "In six days" message at the top of the ramp or that they couldn't intentionally camera pan to it, and it's not like it doesn't get repeated by their announcers. Having that type of advertising repeated over and over by wrestlers waters down these promos.
To chant boring every other time though, and so fast, that's just silly shit that I hope doesn't catch on.
