So, basically, the plan is to screw Cena to the point where he turns heel and becomes "cool" to all the kids who think it's cool to hate on the good guy, right?

#HereComesThePain

Brock Lesnar is back. I may finally get to see CM Punk vs. Lesnar, which is my secret dream match.

I doubt that would happen... I might agree if like three other people came back to bury Cena but him losing is doing nothing bad for the company as he still sells more than anyone else.

It's the new 90's retro era for the WWE. All the young stars in the company must be so excited to see the geriatric Attitude Era veterans getting all this extra time in the spotlight.

Thatís because he very likely isnít. Unlike someone like John Cena or the Rock, it is apparent that Brock Lesnar really does not give a fuck about pro wrestling and is solely in it for the money. He left the WWE on bad terms after getting a push others could only dream of so he could do other things Ė play football, and then after failing at that, MMA. His WWE profile lead to him getting UFC title matches he didnít really deserve. He basically got forced out of MMA due to health issues and went where the money was. Iím positive he isnít happy about it and would rather not be there.

He also strikes me a genuine jerk, unlike someone like Cena or the Rock. I really donít understand why fans are excited to see him return, I donít like the guy at all.

The Rock is 39. Hardly geriatric, especially since Cena is 34 and so is Lesnar (thanks wikipedia).

I always thought that Brock did enjoy Pro Wrestling myself but due to leaving on bad terms just made him bitter... There were so many moments he had with Kurt angle were you could see that he was enjoying himself so much to the point were they could not help but laugh.

He seems stubborn nad a guy that always holds a grudge so the fact that he was forced to leave UFC backed him into a corner so i just hope he can bring a lot more to the show.

Here's Bolvar (Just kidding), but I miss this guy. I think he was the best heel of the past decade. Not a great wrestler though. I wish he'd at least come back and do color commentary.

I never saw that guy wrestle. But I'd probably love his act.

Pretty good article here
- Chris Sims is one of my favorite comic book writers, and has a solid take on the latest with Cena.

Yeah, it's almost enough to make me want to watch WWE again.

Mostly, it's the fact that House has only two episodes left and I literally have nothing else to watch on television.

I actually found myself cheering for Cena recently too. As from earlier in this thread, I have a stated dislike for Lesnar. But the fact that it seemed like he forgot how to wrestle and was just stiffing the shit out of Cena made me cheer for John even more. Lesnar came off as a ďlegitimateĒ goon, which is really what he is. Maybe it was a work, but to me Cenaís head gets hardway split from elbows within 30 seconds of the match says Lesnar was just being an asshole.

Plus, I donít think anyone could support Lord Tensai under any circumstances. Please go away, and take the Asian man servant with you.

All I can remember from wrestling was that Randy Orton was kinda cute, The Undertaker was incredibly awesome, The Big Show always made for good TV, and JBL made me think of americans who marry underage thai ladyboy prostitutes.

I once saw a commercial for a John Cena fleshlight.

I have decided to take a break from Wrestling and that i shal be only watching the DBryan/Punk/Kane fued via youtube. Last night was terrible honestly and the fact that it ended with that instead of a title fued makes me quite sick tbh.

I find it stupid that they are all about this Anti-Bullying campaign with Sheamus and Cena yet they frequently find it okay to puclically humiliate Cole/Laurinaitis.

Bullying is fine if you bully white heterosexual males.

Cena stripped Cole into his boxers and they squirted JR's BBQ sauce all over him to finish the show...

Now I like Cena as a worker, but donít much care for how he is being used. The fact that anything he does has to be the main event simply because of his involvement is really marginalizing the other superstars and the championships. That segment was terrible and utterly unnecessary, but homoerotic enough so that Vince could get his jollies. It might not have been AS egregious if it happened mid-program, but for the main event to be Cole getting smeared with creamy sauceÖ WWE is just really out of touch with its fan base.

Anti-Bullying campaign
Has WWE sunk that low ? Anti-Bullying campaigns are useless. The bully is not going to stop if a celebrity says ''Hey, it's wrong''. Only when the victim will rise against his bully, it may stop. Though it's never that easy, and in many cases impossible.

Iíve face-palmed many a time over WWEís anti-bullying campaign. Of all the issues they could champion (fitness and active lifestyle perhaps?), they chose bullying when the very foundation of their product is ultra-violence and insult-laden promos. They demonstrate on a nightly basis that every problem can be solved through violence. Last night for example, even when Cole apologized and tried to shake hands with Cena, Cena still elected to beat the shit out of him.

Yeah they simply took it to far with the entire Cole thing tbh. What is worse is that we already had a similar travesty on the last PPV with John Laurinaitis.
