WWE Wrestler John Cena is Not a UFC Fan and is Also an Idiot


(Word Life? Nevermind. Cena is brilliant. He can communicate without the use of verbs, adjectives or pronouns.)

Before all the Pro Wrestling fanatics jump all over me for the title of this post, read the quote below, then take a deep breath and think about things in perspective.

Cena, who is a native of Newbury, Massachusetts, was asked about what he thought about the UFC coming to Boston last weekend, likely by an oblivious reporter ,who, like many mainstream scribes, think that MMA and WWE are just variations of the same acronym. Why else would you ask a wrestler to talk about a sport that has as much to do with his profession as hunting does to being a butcher? 

Here’s Cena’s well thought out reply which likely earned him a bonus from Vince McMahon:

"It’s just not something that particularly interests me," Cena told The Boston Globe ahead of UFC 118. "UFC is where boxing was years ago, and I was never really into boxing, either."
In town for last night’s WWE "Monday Night Raw" at the TD Garden, Cena said he prefers professional wrestling because it’s "regulated entertainment that’s safe for anyone to enjoy." And UFC? "It is what it is," he said. "It can be pretty over the top, and it’s not something I’d want my children to watch."


Now I’m not saying MMA is G-rated entertainment by any means, and I don’t let my younger kids watch it, the same as I don’t let them watch violent movies, but to say that WWE shows aren’t "over the top" and are "regulated entertainment that’s safe for anyone to enjoy," either proves that Cena has been dropped on his head one too many times or that he’s just plain simple.

Somehow I don’t see Nickelodeon picking up this wholesome programming:

Hey bobroode you think John Cena is "a joke of an athlete"? Actually the guy is probably 20 times the "athlete" you THINK you are. Have you ever seen the guy destroy the weight room or seen any of his workouts? HE IS JACKED. You can question his professional wrestling character but you cant question his athleticism. Go look up the definition of athlete right now moron.

John Cena may be athletic but he's no athlete. Doesn't compete for anything. Being "JACKED" is possibly just a product of steroid use and isn't really useful in most fighting sport anyways he's way too bulky for his height. Now stop throwing around insults and go back to fawning over inflatable men.

Who cares about JOhn Cena, he is such a joke of an "athlete". I would rather build designer baby furniture all day than watch one of his boring matches.

Agreed Hunter, Maybe that post will go untouched like my earlier ones clearly didn't.

I'm actually posting my name to this

(thanks for the advertisement on that post that you edited, If your editing something to try to make someone out to be a homosexual try to make it less obvious. Hugh GVagina really that's an oxymoronic name coming from a supposed homosexual who has incestuous sex with ones own father.)

"what does it make a wrestling writer who signs up on an MMA website to insult them?"

A person pointing out the obvious.

If you don't want to be insulted, don't publish insultingly stupid material. The least you could do would be to bother to actually put some time and research into your writing and not try so incredibly hard to look as ambitiously stupid as this 'analysis' would suggest you are.

Least you could do would be to write me a 'thank you' letter. I'm actually helping you here, but you're too busy being ULTIMATE~! Nothing gets people to take you 'seriously' like desperate attempts to prove their the shiniest moral turd in the toilet bowl. Keep providing us with more 'crack' analysis.

Me, I'll go write a blog about how Magglio Ordonez not being a wrestling fans hurts my feelings and pretend people give a shit.

Sweep the leg,
Hunter

Sounds exactly like that to me . What do farts taste like.................. I have too much respect for the people involved to tell that story, ask around though someone you know should be able to tell you how I know. You do know my dad, don't you?Evan O'Brienwww.fromheadlockstoheadlines.com

Calling someone out for an Internet fight seems a bit too "Pro Wrestling" to me. And how do you know what farts taste like?
Hugh Humphrey- September 1, 2010 at 9:56 am
Hey Mike, why don't you use an audio blog to call Hunter out if you have teeth to record one. This article tastes like farts

 So if "MMA has a stupid, obviously molested and shrill fan base" and the MMA media "is more concerned with fighting with a pretend television show which makes it look like the constantly evolving tropes within the sport,"what does it make a wrestling writer who signs up on an MMA website to insult them?I'd love to hear your insight on THAT, Hunter Golden. Nice touch with the grammatical and punctuation mistakes. The Big Red Word Nerd is Hunter Golden.At least use a throw away email when you register just to troll an MMA website.hxxp://monarchnetworking.com/images/hunter4409.jpg

Well, we can take solace that after so many years, Cena's still a terrible technical wrestler and everyone outside of his pre-teen fanbase hates his ass.
Jesus Frijoles- September 1, 2010 at 6:32 am
My eleven year old watches MMA with me all the time. The other night I walked by his room and saw WWE on. Gotta say I got a little choked up when he flipped channels and told me, "Dad that stuff is stupid,why don't they just fight?"
Dagnut- September 1, 2010 at 5:04 am
Who gives a flying fuck if wrestlers die or hurt themselves? let them die..if he's worried about kids watching a dangerous sports what about the countless kids who've been injured copying their ludicrous moves?? top rope shit...cage jumps..slamming chairs off their backs...yeah real safe John.
I nearly killed a neighbours kid when I was 12 with a DDT...badly hurt his neck..I knew it was going to hurt the little fucker..but at least when my old man whipped me I could blame Jake the snake....another kid smashed his brother with a 2x4 ala Hacksaw Jim Dugan

"regulated entertainment that's safe for anyone to enjoy"

I would like to take this moment to inform you of some recent WWF/E story lines, involving:-

- Rape
- Incest
- Necrophilla
- Drugs
- Abuse of disabled people
- Bastard children
- Dementia and abuse of mentally disabled people
- Death
- Terrorism
- Racial sterotyping
- Homosexual sterotyping
- Objectification of women
- Using death of wrestlers to promote the company and its stars
- Old person gives birth to a hand
- Ritual Sacrifice
- Live sex
- Live burial
- Use of multiple weapons during fights including and not limited to: Barbed wire, cars, hammers, nails and fire.
- Murder
- Torture
- Kidnap
- Blasphemy
- Feeding other people the remains of their dead pets (seriously)
- Alchohol Abuse
- Transexual Intercourse
- Pornography
- Stalking

So overall Mr. Cena, if I had children, I'd much rather they see a guy get punched in the face. However if you wish for your kids to see all of the above, good luck to you ...
Towney007- September 1, 2010 at 4:00 am
So a non-MMA guy says that he's not an MMA fan and wouldn't take his kid to see it. Who cares?

And if you're going to knock the guy, at least get your facts straight. The WWE's pretty much been a PG company for the past 2-3 years. The product was seedier in the past to be sure, but the dynamic has changed dramatically. In the context of the present, I don't see how he's that hypocritical.

And what's with MMA's homoerotic infatuation with pro wrestling and their fans anyway? Pro wrestling is a TV show. Like Sopranos, Law and Order or the Simpsons. They have a guy like John Cena and he solves problems and slays dragons just like Tony Soprano whacked opposing mob bosses and put out fires caused by his bungling side kicks. MMA is a sport - a game with rules that dictate the outcome of their bouts. There's really no correlation outside of the fact that they're both on ppv.

If MMA fans are baffled as to why their sport hasn't recieved the credibility of OTHER sports - it's for reasons like this. Their ambitiously stupid, obviously molested and shrill fan base and media is more concerned with fighting with a pretend television show which makes it look like the constantly evolving tropes within the sport are not interesting enough to talk about. It's like the NFL 'calling out' a member of the cast of 'Friday Night Lights' because they're not a football fan. Why don't more people talk MMA? Because it's not interesting. Just ask the media that covers it.

What a stupid, stupid story. *Facepalm* for MMA with this stuff.
McMonkeyBoy- September 1, 2010 at 3:24 am
"lameness" Great word, keep using it.

It's a shame Vince isn't interested in MMA vs Pro. Wrestling PPV. Settle that debate once and for all. Brock lesnar vs Rey Mysterio seeing as weight classes mean nothing in pro wrestling. High-fucking-lairious. Anyone remember that Daniel Puder, Kurt Angle thing a few years ago? Dana and Daniel were ready, Kurt and Vince weren't.

Shaky- September 1, 2010 at 3:16 am
IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMMIT!!!

....at least the rampant steroid abuse is. The Chris Benoit story is particularly disturbing. Some website (was it this one?) linked another website chronicling all the pro wrestler deaths, the vast majority were from heart disease (or other similar problems) before their time. John Cena's probably speaking on behalf of his swelling brain, the WWE is clearly more dangerous than MMA, why?
One word
TOMBSTONE!
JaredB- September 1, 2010 at 2:00 am
Just playing devil's advocate here, but Cena's point has one thing going for it. MMA may be inherently violent but the UFC doesn't encourage the people involved to ever step up from the gutter in their production. Carwin's post fight "fuck" laden interview and every freaking corner cam of "You won that fucking round. You're fucking him up good out there. You're beating the fucking shit out of him. Fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck." gets really tiresome and is part of why MMA gets the thug sport image.

The WWE has cleaned up their on air product from the time of the video you posted, but that is mostly to deflect from their horrendous safety record and high death and addiction rates of ex employees (something MMA is having a budding problem with like when this started in wrestling).

And furthermore, if this isn't just company line, why does John Cena have to like the UFC? It's not for everyone but some people enjoy it. Just sounded like an opinion to me.

Who cares what he says? by the way Owen Hart died from a horrific accident Not suicide or Drug Overdosing. Clever clever. Merlin should learn to not be retarded. Continue on this is fairly amusing.

I can't really believe that people watch professional wrestling past the age of 9... I don't even know how to file this information as "relevant".
.......................................................................................................................

C'mon man, we all watched it up to about 15-16, and its not relevant, its about as relevant as wooden deck skateboards with rubber wheels and trucks, no longer relevant but fun memories. Peace out dude

Ah the sweet memories of youth, that's why I'll always remember wrestling
