I'm gonna be a douche and say "Himself"
It's not a lie so much as internet fans not even understanding what they read. I've called out Dave on his false information before but he never responds. He's using a report which he didn't even understand correctly. For lifetime merchandise, Cena is behind both Austin and Hogan still.That's a lie created by Net fans...there is no proof ANYWHERE that Cena has sold anywhere near that much merchandise..that's NwO shirt territory..that's insanity
I dunno how much Hogan's merchandise was, but all of Cena's gear (t-shirt, baseball cap, wristband, chain, etc.) costs a small fortune. Jesus Christ. Next time you see a little boy with all that Cena gear, just remember that what he's wearing is probably worth more than a 3rd world country. This is why people think he's sold as much as Hogan and Austin.You could probably add 25 to 50 percent to Hogan's total if it was easy to sell merchandise online in the 80's as it is today. hell it might have even double or tripled his sales.
Plus how much did a shirt cost back then, ten dollars?
And even when he put sheamus over it was just a table match. They didn't have Sheamus actually pin him in a match.he has put over sheamus, Edge(who was already over), Randy Orton(again already over) and Batista(already over) so basically sheamus was the only man he put over, where you see guys like HHH, Rock, Taker,HBK,Austin,Jericho,Angle, put over guys to make them rising stars.
ill give you taker and warrior, but yoko hogan was leaving to wcw so he had to lose the title and lets not mention him taking the title off yokozuna by playing im hogan card, the rock was already one of the biggest stars ever and it would ahve been dumb for hogan to lose to the rock at that time, and lesnar didnt lesnar already beat the undertaker at this pt and hogan was well over the hill and couldnt pull ill just quit cause wcw was gone, only thing he has truely put over is his next pay checkAustin wasn't on top long enough to put anyone over. He was out most of the 4 years he was on top and then he walked out twice and retired. You can't really fault Austin's tenure or blame him for not making new stars.
Again, Hogan put over (this is the WWE section):
Ultimate Warrior (Wrestlemania VI)
The Undertaker (Survivor Series 1991)
Yokozuna (King of the Ring 1993)
The Rock (passed the torch, Wrestlemania X8)
Brock Lesnar (8/8/2002 episode of Smackdown! before Summerslam 2002)
John Cena has the same type of booking as Hogan but far worse. They don't call him Super Cena for nothing. He no sells attacks and when he is viciously attacked, he does not have any signs of injury e.g. bandages. John Cena is the worst face you can have but he is shoved down our throats. Cena is overrated as a draw and his merchandise sales are behind Austin and Hogan. Your top face shouldn't be booed out of the building every other night. Cena doesn't have any longevity or value in the long run like Hogan did. Cena has to have a legendary heel turn/run to restart his so-called face run. Cena always look stronger in all the feuds he is in. Cena has not put anyone over and there's no one in the company that needs a rub because they are not strong enough to take Cena's place. Cena is the best the WWE can do.
Woh woh woh.he has put over sheamus, Edge(who was already over), Randy Orton(again already over) and Batista(already over) so basically sheamus was the only man he put over
He obviously does sell attacks or his back would never touch the mat.He no sells attacks and when he is viciously attacked, he does not have any signs of injury e.g. bandages.
lolwut?Cena has nothing to do with Edges accolades.
Heel\'s aren\'t supposed to look credible. Cena lost to Batista clean at Summerslam 07 or 08.Umaga was built as a monster but Cena went over him twice and he never got his credibility back. The exact same case for Khali here too. Also the same case during Big Show\'s heel run a couple of years ago
Batista was already over and Cena went over him in all of their matches.
Orton was already over as well and once again Cena won all of their matches besides the HIAC, where Cena got right back up after being punted
Barrett was booked strong but once again Cena went over and Barrett went down the card
Bourne won a tag match with Cena once but he went right back to being a jobber
Sheamus\'s title win was looked at as a fluke and he never was able to win a match clean.
Edge had a great feud with Cena for sure, but Cena took Edge\'s belt from him 2 weeks after he won it while he was having an entertaining reign while it lasted. Edge already had a lot of heat before the feud started but it probably helped, although Cena went over in this feud too.
