Defending the Great One: Why Cena is a Disrespectful Jackass

Cutting all bullshit, ladies and gents, these anti-Rock sentiments are getting a bit on my nerves. The tweets are off the charts on this whole Cena/Rock issue, and while I'm all for supporting whoever the hell you want to support, some of these Cenation members are just downright lost when it comes to reasoning.

The Rock left, yes. And you should thank your lucky fucking stars he left when he did. I can't tell you how many times I've heard the complaint that, for the past handful of years, we've been seeing the same faces in main events. These face include Cena, Orton, HHH, Edge, and Taker. Lather, rinse, repeat, as they say. What do you really think would have happened had the Rock stayed with the company? Anything fresh? Seriously? The guy did everything possible in the WWE. He even jobbed to Lesnar to push the new guy before he left. That's called doing what's best for the company.

And every bit of what Johnson said about his trek to Hollywood was true as well. The more involved he became in his film career, the more doors it opened for wrestlers like Cena to get more opportunities. Hell, "The Scorpion King" helped launch WWE Films, an outlet that has helped stars such as Cena, DiBiase, etc. to get some more experience on the acting side of things.

Think about it this way: if the Rock stayed, you'd call him a glory-hound who's over-saturating the market, much like we've called HHH and Cena. But the fact that he left now makes him a traitor. There's no winning in this situation.

Look, I'm no Cena fan, but I do appreciate what he's done as a performer. He's definitely dedicated and devoted to the fans, and he loves what he does. Props to him for that. But for him to open his mouth about the Rock "lying" was completely disrespectful on his part. For that, he's a pompous ass who's lost a bit of respect from myself and other fans alike.

Yes, we can see you, Cena. And yes, we do smell what you're cookin', Dwayne.
