Royal Rumble 2013: What John Cena Can Learn from The Rock
Monday night's Raw had two promos from WWE's top babyfaces.

One was compelling. One was terrible.

A guy who shows up only a few weeks a year is more universally loved than WWE’s current top star.

In fact, it sounds like John Cena is hated by about half the audience.

When people chant for The Rock, it’s not followed up by an equally loud “Rocky sucks” chant.

There’s a lot that Cena could learn from The Great One.

Right now, The Rock takes his feud with Punk seriously. Of course, he finds time to joke around, sing a few songs and lay out a “cookie puss” or two, but when it’s time to deliver the lines that make money, he knows how to do it.

When Rock and Punk are face-to-face, the smiles goes away, the guitar is set down. While he comes off as confident, he treats his foe as an equal.

On Raw, The Rock put over Punk's 428-day title reign. He said it was historic, and that he had the right to call himself the best in the world.

Compare that with Cena's promo at the end of the night.

Cena didn't bother talking up the importance of the Royal Rumble match, how the odds are against him and how grueling and unpredictable it is.

He brought out the jokes.

Cena found the time to let us know that his video game user name is skidmarks187, then tossed in a bad yoga joke, mentioned blow-up dolls and topped it off by digging down deep for a dated Bret Favre reference.

This was the go-home hype for one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year. The crowd was vocally hostile to this blend of comedy.

What Cena doesn’t understand is that you should build up your opponents to make them seem like a threat. Then when you defeat them, you come out looking better because you beat someone legitimate.

Ziggler may have just worked with the company's top star, but he's only worse for the wear now.

Cena wasn't concerned about Ziggler, his ex-girlfriend or Big E Langston. It was time for wiener jokes, badly Photoshopped pictures and dropping large quantities of excrement from the ceiling.

Cena did the damage to himself. Beating a joke character meant nothing. His win was meaningless.

The Rock was able to sell his feud with Punk much better with only two words:

“Time’s up”.

Not only did The Rock make Punk look like a star, but he actually sold for The Shield. He made four people look good in one night.

When Ziggler defeated Cena with AJ’s help, Cena got up… and smiled.

His girlfriend just dumped him in front of millions of people; he lost his chance at the Money in the Bank contract. He was fooled, and yet he took the time to shake his head and let us know that he's okay.

This was the same reaction he had when Brock Lesnar bashed him in the mouth. No big deal, apparently.

Nothing gets to this guy.

He doesn’t have to overcome his defeats and letdowns, because they just don't bother him in the first place. While children may like this superhero trait in him, it makes him unrelatable to the rest of the audience.

The Rock understands when it's time to be serious and sell a feud. Comedy may get some laughs, but it doesn't sell tickets. Though he was gone for nearly a decade, he still hasn't forgotten this aspect of wrestling.

In ten straight years of WWE service, Cena somehow still hasn't learned that basic, fundamental skill.
very good read from another site
the guy who wrote this actually answered a lot of questions asked here by rock haters about the different between cena and rock jokes and comedy
Wow. Whoever wrote that made a lot of great points I agree with. Cena's not the only one who should take points from The Rock in selling a money feud tbh. However, as the face of the WWE for the last 8 years he should know better. I'm buying this show based on the build Rock & Punk have delivered these last few weeks.

I personally would much rather have Punk win at Royal Rumble, and let Rock get his win at Wrestlemania. Punk/Rock has been a far better feud than Cena/Rock and I would rather they not end it so soon, let it go to WM and cap it off there.

I also think that may be a possibility, with Heyman talking to Maddox. Even if Lesnar does not interfere I have a feeling we might get a ref bump or something with Maddox filling in for the 3 count.

some u tube comments so cool

When the Rock bleeds, the people bleed...

My pen fall on my foot when i saw Rock bleeding.

cm suck cm suck cm suck cm suck Kick Punk's ass rockyy

this segment reminds me of EVOLUTION. the champ is HHH, the shield are Orton, batista, and flair. beating the hek out of the rock

The Rock vs Cm Punk = Once in a Lifetime

The Rock vs John Cena = Once in a WC

i actually only watched about 20-30 seconds and couldn't take it anymore I hate the shield

this crap they call wrestling today ?? Bring back the NWA of the 80's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great video package on the last page to go along with the amazing one done on the first Punk/Rock promo. I hope WWE produces something as amazing to tie all the promos and build together.

They better give us a promo before the match. I was pissed that we didn't get one before Rock/Cena with all its build. Instead, they gave us childhood pictures from Rock and Cena led by a horrible song.

It would be great that way in my opinion.

Ive been saying thats the way it will go for over a week. I want Rock to win at Rumble then lose it at EC to set up Rock/Brock but of course WWE just has to have there boy Cena get his win back instead of giving the fans what we really want to see

UFC's Chael Sonnen and Jon Bones Jones talk about Punk/Rock briefly here. "MC Punk"

Sonnen is right though, Punk's going to put a beating on Rock Sunday. CM GOAT.

would've thought Chael was on Rock's side, you know, considering he used many of Rock's insults when promoting his fights

but that's cool, stick with your buddy all time, he and MC Punk ( ) go way back

Jon Jones is a Rock fan huh, why isn't that surprising ?
