Also, How is that even Cena's fault lol? The bookers decide how a match ends. If its a jobber, the match will usually finish with the finishing (5-move) combo. Otherwise it gets a bit too predictable that the match won't end after a combo. In more important matches, obviously they change it up a bit.
Thing is, it makes no sense for people to complain about it. It is something used to get the crowd going and thinking the superstar has got the opponent beat. It is something almost everyone uses, every top face anyway. People complaining that Cena has a 5 move combo is just stupid and ignorant.
First thing, that would be only one time in recent memory. Perhaps you are correct in saying that it should not be predictable that the match will or will not end after the combo. The recent tendency was not to do so.
Also, Cena is the cash cow and angry cash cows cost you money instead of making it. If Cena really wanted and pushed for a different match ending once in a while, Vince/creative would have a hard time telling him 'no'. Not that they wouldn't, but that it would be difficult for them to get him to go along with something he didn't like for very long. Additionally, please notice that nowhere in my post did I blame Cena for anything, and in fact mentioned 'they', the bookers.
Thing is, people are bored by it and complain because he's not just using it on jobbers. He has used it countless times to win against those who were booked to be a rival to him over the years. People aren't complaining that Cena has a 5 move combo; they are complaining that, regardless of how much it got the live 'crowd going', the 5 moves of doom combo that he has used for years makes for old, stale, and boring television. Every single one of us has seen that combo before, countless times. Honestly, it would be a refreshing change of pace for him to come up with a new pattern, if not slightly different moves.
