(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:
