Starting off our 5 of the most Overused/Overrated is none other than…
The Franchise John Cena, is one of the few people on the roster who have been with the company for so long.
Since 2001 Cena has had an outstanding career, but, in those 17 going on 18 years, it seems that Vince and co has used him just a bit too much.
Not by any fault of his own, Cena has been in tons of different storylines as many a different character…Thug-a-nomics anyone?
Cena is one of the most valued at the WWE for many reasons. He is and has been a crowd favorite, his fights with The Rock have become a thing of legend.
#JohnCena is also a favorite when it comes to charities. He was and still is the most requested celebrity for the Make A Wish Foundation. And that is only one of many charities he works with.
This makes the WWE look good, but, it is something that Cena himself says he loves doing.
He is currently a hot commodity in Hollywood as film after film either stars Cena or he makes a cameo. He briefly had a reality TV show called ‘American Grit’ which was essentially ‘American Ninja Warrior’ but with weekly eliminations. Cena has also had much success with co-hosting the Today show, and of course his appearances on the shows, ‘Total Divas’ and ‘Total Bellas’ both are WWE reality shows.
Sadly, it seems that when the writers have some sort of writer’s block, they just write Cena into the storyline. This is unfortunate for Cena as this just overexposes him to the fans and they end up tuning out for his segments.
Most recently, it was Cena seeking his ‘Wrestlemania moment’ and almost every TV appearance was about him finding it, eventually he ended up calling out The Deadman himself and attempt after attempt of calling him out, he finally answered…And Cena got his ‘Wrestlemania moment’ with The Undertaker – he lost, but he got it.
Then Cena won a very boring match against #TripleH at The Greatest Royal Rumble, which everyone is still asking what made it so great?
That was over two months ago, and Cena hasn’t been on TV much since.
So – did the writers get the clue that they were over using him, or is it that they are waiting for the next road block to write him into?
