Anyone else get over their dislike for John Cena these days?

I couldn't stand him for years from around 2006 through to 2015 but now I can appreciate the guy mainly because he's barely around anymore and attempting Hollywood, Sometimes I want to see him return for a high profile storyline just because he's actually someone you can invest in when it comes to selling a good build up in whatever feud he's involved in and his matches garner attention wherever you want to see him win or lose, He still evokes that kind of reaction.

He's no Austin, Rock, Hogan but he's not lacking star power and that's what people expect out of performers in wrestling, Today is short on that no doubt, We have very good In Ring performers and very good Mic workers but still short on that larger than life appeal, The brand is the draw these days but that isn't going to stop fans from wanting a star that exceeds expectations.

Re: Anyone else Get over their dislike for John Cena these days?

I don't mind him anymore.
He usually just shows up, cuts a decent promo and puts someone over. I can't criticize the dude for that. The only time he really goes over these days is if he's taking on a midcarder (Elias) or someone fucking terrible (Baron Corbin). Any other time he usually gives the rub to a younger wrestler or lose to them.

I hated him in 2007 but now I love when he makes special appearances. The WM35 one was great.

My problem is never with the wrestler its with the powers that be who shove said wrestler down my throat. While I might not have liked what cena stood for, I never disliked the person/wrestler. If that makes sense.

Up until 2013 I just wanted him off my tv screen. Since then he's been part time and now I just don't care.

Re: Anyone else Get over their dislike for John Cena these days?

Nope. I have hated this man ever since his debut... didn't like the prototype, didn't like his vanilla ice rap gimmick and didn't like his stale character he kept after that.

Sure I can respect the mans worth ethic but his character has never gelled with me. He was the reason I stopped watching wrestling for 5 years too (2004 - 2009), so that doesn't help.

Nah, fuck him. The absolute worst thing that ever happened in wrestling. He paved the way for all the pure shit we're witnessing right now.

All Time
Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, Mankind, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Batista, Cm Punk, The Rock, Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero

Current
Everyone is buried.

Re: Anyone else Get over their dislike for John Cena these days?

I gave up in 2008.

WWE wasn't gonna change anything so there was no point in getting pissy over CenaWinsLOL after that. I was more upset with WWE when I say the same thing happening with Reigns from a mile away in 2014. Not mad, just disappointed. Sums up my viewpoint of the company for a long time before you just get numb.

I don't care enough about him to dislike him.
