Thought of the Day: Cena’s Promo On Raw

This is a big news story lately with even ESPN.com mentioning.  As for what I think, Yes it was a bad promo, but Cena has been cutting great ones for years now.  He missed on this one and it went on way too far and he could have cut about three minutes out of it and gotten the point (Sunday is a big day and he’s going to war.  Why is that so hard for people to get?) across just the same.  What wrestling fans’ short attention spans seem to forget is that Cena is one of the best talkers ever.  He messed this one up and that’s it.  Everyone is entitled to a misstep every once in awhile.  Even Rock had some really stupid catchphrases (“Why don’t you go and have a nice cool glass of SHUT UP JUICE?” or “How are your lips?”) every now and then.  It’s not the end of the world and it’s certainly not the end of Cena.  It was a bad promo and at the moment nothing more than that.

    Cenas promos when hes not focused and got a point can get pretty off the wall and bad, but he’s not the only one, Rock has done some shockers, i remember in Jerichos book he mentioned taker doing a shit one which didnt didn’t seem to hurt his standing at all… it happens come Mania season Cena will have a point again and he will step it up a gear as always

    Exactly. In a week the Rumble will be over, Rock will probably be WWE Champion, Raw is a gimmick show, we’ll be on the road to Wrestlemania, and no one is going to remember this promo at all. It’s not a big deal.

    Oh I remember that promo by Undertaker. He spent 15 mins talking about god knows what and then Jericho came out and called it boring live on tv and it got a huge pop from the crowd when he was supposed to be a heel. Jericho got MASSIVE heat backstage for it.

    It really wasn’t that bad. His star wars promo was a thousand times worse

    I don’t understand the fuss. Yeah it sucked, who cares? Every wrestler has had a shit promo.
    The thing with Cena is to keep the jokes to a minimum, because comically he’s never had great delivery. Passion and intensity are when his promos REALLY shine.

    Everyone acts like every other Wrestler’s Promos are perfect but when Cena has one bad one (I didn’t think it was that bad either) he gets shit on. I just don’t understand it sometimes. Hell Hogan & Savage had some weird Promos at times when they were on top.

    Well that’s not fair Savage is one of if not the best promo man ever. Cena’s promo was off but he’ll be fine. He kinda hits and misses.
