WWE And TNA: 7 Worst Moments Of The Week (Jan 18)

6. Super, Duper, Cena Makes Me Sad

WWE has this weird fascination with showing that not only can John Cena easily defeat his top heel opponents in the company, but he could do it even with a dozen other guys also working against him. His match against Seth Rollins saw him about to win on multiple occasions, with only outside interference saving Mr. Money in the Bank. How does that make him look like a threat for their Royal Rumble match? If he wins the title, then no one is going to take him seriously! When a heel does win the title, WWE often goes with the philosophy of pushing him as a coward and easily beatable, so fans think there can be a title change on any night. We went through that numerous times with Dolph Ziggler, JBL, Kurt Angle, Edge and more. It doesn€™t work that well. Making Cena essentially equal to 12 guys means that the other wrestlers don€™t matter, so why should we bother getting invested in their matches? Even The Avengers need to team up to take on multiple villains, not Cena. He€™s just a big, boring Superman.

As Rust Cohle from True Detective said "Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you're good at." Sadly, I can't solve a murder like Rust...or change a tire, or even tie a tie. But I do know all the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme song and can easily name every Natural Born Thriller from the dying days of WCW. I was once ranked 21st in the United States in Tetris...on the Playstation 3 version...for about a week. Follow along @AndrewSoucek and check out my podcast at wrestlingwithfriends.com
